Vocalist/songwriter Rachel Borovik, a graduate of Traverse City’s West Senior High and Interlochen Arts Academy is coming home from Boston to put on a home CD release party at the Inside Out Gallery in Traverse City on Thursday, January 7 at 8:00pm.
Ms. Borovik, is currently living in Boston and attending Berklee College of Music. Rachel performs regularly around Boston and surrounding areas and her Berklee band recently recorded Rachel’s first full-length album of all original music, “Untangled.” The Berklee Groove writes, “Untangled, Rachel Borovik’s first full-length offering to the world, is a strong album. On the surface it harkens back to the female songstresses of the 90s like Linda Perry, Joan Osborne, or even early Sheryl Crow with feel-good hooks and poise. But when you listen a little closer, a modern jazz nouveau edge is revealed, not unlike Corinne Bailey Rae or Alicia Keys.”
Rachel will be backed up by Traverse City musicians Al Jankowski on piano, Chris Michels on guitar, Stu Ford on bass, and Jordan Huggett on drum set. Long time mentor and friend Jeff Haas will join for a song or two as well. “I am extremely excited to come home and share my new music and growth as an artist with my family and friends in Traverse. Traverse City is such a warm and supportive community that I love coming home to. I am also eager and honored to be playing with such great players that I haven’t had the opportunity to work with yet,” says Borovik.
Tickets for January 7th performance are $10 and available in advance at Oryana, Borders, Cupa Joe, Sound it Out Records, online at treatickets.com. The Inside Out Gallery is located at 229 Garland Street Traverse City, MI 49684. For more information, call 231-929-3254 or email [email protected] Rachel’s music can be heard at rachelborovik.com.
