In case you hadn't heard, the very talented Rachel Mari Kimber has "an eclectic and classic songwriting style with hints of her many influences gracefully running through her music". She has been likened to Jewel, Joni Mitchell, Sheryl Crow and Alanis Morrisette, yet her idiosyncratic voice and quirks set her in a league of her own.

Rachel has two albums released on her own label RMK Music and are available by contacting her through this site. Both the acoustic album 'A Drop In The Ocean' and the band album 'Life Changes Everything Changes..' were recorded in Wales and feature Rachel as Producer and multi-instrumentalist. 'Life Changes Everything Changes..' was mixed in Los Angeles by John Brand.

Additional musicians on 'Life Changes Everything Changes..' include 'Manic Street Preachers' Producer & Percussionist Greg Haver on Drums and Percussion,  Ryan Aston on Drums, Sebastiaan Elsenburg and Asia's John Payne on Bass with Nigel Hopkins and Asia's Geoff Downes an Keyboards.

The 'Life Changes...' album has a varied selection of songs, from the edgy pop of 'City Life' and 'Time Flies' to the insidiously catchy 'Will to Live', which features a magnificent orchestral arrangement by award winning arranger John Rea. There is even a duet, the beautiful 'Love Song' featuring Welsh singer / songwriter, 'The Storys' front man and the voice of Jesus (Jesus Christ Superstar fame) Steve Balsamo.

A four track album sampler with it's own exclusive artwork was produced for radio, with shortened versions of 'Bubble Trouble' and 'Truth Hurts' alongside 'Insane Aeroplane' and 'Girl in Love'. There are a very limited number of these special signed album samplers available on request... but going fast!

During her career Rachel has had some wonderful reviews and has had featured coverage in The Observer, The Sunday Times and The Telegraph as well as many specialist music magazines.

Tracks from the album have been played on many radio stations nationally and a recent dance remix of 'Bubble Trouble' by the talented producer Bren F can now be heard on YouTube.com. This version of 'Bubble Trouble' was even nominated for an NME award!

While on a trip to Los Angeles where the band were recording, Rachel contributed to the album ‘White Butterfly’ by Emo rock band InMe. Rachel wrote the arrangment and performed the Cellos on the poignant song ‘Parting Gift’ which has become one of the bands fans firm favourites.

She has also played cello for Welsh artists such as  Richard Parfitt, Steve Balsamo and Patrick Jones (read her biography for more details).

Since 2013, Rachel has been playing cello for The Black Forest Society, enjoying live shows, and she also played on their studio album which was recorded in Cottonwood, Arizona (in 2013). She is also doing solo performances of her music in and around Phoenix, Arizona, USA, as well as suprise gigs popping up in other regions, such as Canada! If your local region can gather enough RMK fans, you can request her to play through the contact page, and your dreams may come true!
