In Concert
Thursday, October 4, 8pm

Rachanee is a versatile independent singer/songwriter based in Michigan. Her catchy blend of folk/pop/rock music is quickly gaining attention nationwide at various venues and on college, Christian and AAA radio. "Here with Me" from Rachanee's debut album Ordinary Girl was named Best Contemporary Christian Song for the 2006 Independent Music Awards, and "From Here" placed second in the 2006 Great Lakes Songwriting Contest.  Often found as either a solo acoustic act or part of an acoustic duo, she is comfortable performing in any venue, as she performs regularly at festivals, coffeeshops, and churches all over the country.  Compared to Natalie Merchant and Michelle Branch, her music has a guitar-driven folk/rock feel; her heartfelt lyrics appeal to any audience.  Tickets:  $10
