West Coast Tour Part One! 

Touring…

So it’s been really awesome starting this tour of the West Coast! So far we have been to Boulder Creek and Pismo Beach in California then Boulder City and Las Vegas in Nevada. We are learning so much about each other and about touring in general together as a band. Some things I learned about the bandmates are that Tracy loves Lord Of The Rings, Kevin still approaches the world like a newborn by using his sense of touch (putting things close to his face, mouth and ears), Jonas likes to eat, and Tyler thinks he is a dinosaur! The road is rough. We became very sweaty and dirty taking turns sitting in different positions, trying to sleep in the back of my used Chevy Colorado. Some highlights and lowlights in no particular order were: 

-seeing deer on the way back from boulder creek and the clouds beneath the moon from the mountain top

-paying $15 for a subway sandwich in Vegas 

-experiencing 120 degree weather with no a/c

-the busking angels (in Boulder creek women at the bar are encouraged to go around collecting tips for the band)

-carrying gear up and down motel stairs 

-the kindness of fellow musicians and fans

-and some off-roading!

 

It’s been a wonderful journey like the college experience I never had!

Thanks to all the wonderful kind people that support our music and help with our expenses! We love you all so much from the bottom of our hearts! None of this would be possible without you whom we are doing all this for! 

 

Love, 

Rachelle of Rachelle and The Rising

DrunkenWereWolf MAGAZINE FEATURE 

Meet Rachelle and The Rising; a part Filipino/American, part Italian, and part Venezuelan rock band hailing from Los Angeles, California. Their“bad-ass” front woman Rachelle Adrian is joined by Tyler DeCastro, Tracy Lambertucci, Kevin Lambertucci, and Jonas Blomqvist, who provide drums, lead and rhythm guitar, and bass. If you’re a fan ofHalestormGarbage, or maybe evenParamore, then they might be right up your street.

 

Having previously toured three times in Hawaii, and more recently in LA and surrounding areas, they’re building a strong fan base online, with over 21,000 fans on ReverbNation already. Their most recent video for “Face The World Alone” - a mixture of hot leather clad ladies and preying zombies - was released on both YouTube and music channel Myx TV in the Philippines. They’ll be performing in the upcoming sexy zombie horror film Fetish Factory, and are about to release a new single, "We Must Be One".

Music and songwriting is incredibly important to front woman Rachelle, and her dream is to make it in the music business.  She’s certainly going to give it all she and her bandmates have got. Listen to "Maze" below.

Fetish Factory 

One of my new friends happens to be an actress/movie producer of independent films! She is a super cool chick with a lot going on just like me. We are currently discussing hang me and the band perform in her new movie Fetish Factory. I may also be saying a few lines as a burlesque dancer. Some of my songs will also be used for the film. Super exciting! Wish me luck!
Love, Rachelle xoxox

The scar 

No I don't have a lightning bolt on my forehead that glows when my arch nemesis is plotting his revenge lol.... A lot of people ask me "What happened?!!" when they see my tummy because I have a fairly large scar that goes across the left side of my abdomen just below the ribs. If I can remember correctly, my mom told me I was born with a diaphragmatic hurnia. My intestines went through the hole into my chest cavity so that my left lung was unable to develop. While they were deciding what to do my Dad went and got a doughnut and the minute he got back he had to sign papers to allow the doctors to operate. I had a 50% chance of living. I sometimes say "It's like, hey let's flip a coin to see if Rachelle is allowed to exist!" Sure enough, the doctors stitched me up and after six weeks in the incubator my left lung grew in (because I was 6 weeks premature) and I pulled out my own drainage tubes. The doctor told my mom "Well, she pulled out her drainage tubes, and she was right! She doesn't need them anymore! You can take her home." I think it's pretty awesome I got the good side of the coin and to top it all off I have lungs and a diaphragm that are good enough to sing with! 

Hey Mon!  

 So I'm guessing most musician's trying to make it in the music world have this in common with me...
I was texting my friend today and she was wondering how I pay for everything for the band. I explained that I have a few jobs and sometimes as many as 3 or 4! I tutor statistics independently and for a few different companies, I've sold my old clothes on ebay, I am a licensed massage therapist, and I even tried GoGo dancing at a couple places...It's expensive to advertise, buy merch, record, and master songs! Anyway, I was telling one of my stats students about all my jobs and he said "Hey, you're like that family from 'In Living Color' !" Here's where you can see the video of an episode of "Hey Mon!" (keep in mind that this was filmed quite a few years ago so it could potentially be offensive since it's a total stereotype :) But I don't see anything wrong with people who work hard).

"Running" and my Dad Podcast

 My Dad is such a fan of the song "Running" it's so funny...I would almost get annoyed with him over it. I remember when I wrote it, not that long ago...

In August of last year, I was feeling pretty down when I wrote it, and I wasn't even too happy with the song. I immediately went to see my producer. He told me he wanted to hear it. He loved it and said we had absolutely had to record it. Instead of tracking vocals that day for another song, we ended up recording a scratch track of "Running" and creating some string and piano parts to go with it! What surprised me about that song is that we didn't even touch the structure after my initial scratch recording. We even left that little partial chorus at the end...

I showed it to my Dad when I got home and he loved it and asked to hear it at least two more times throughout the rest of the day. Then he asked for a copy of it to listen to at work, but I didn't want to give it to him until it was "finished" i.e. mixed and mastered... About once a month he would say, "When is that song going to be done?" lol patience is a virtue!

I kinda struggled with that vocal track...we redid the vocals two or three times! I think Michael Binikos (producer) was getting really frustrated with me. I was also frustrated because I knew I could do it better. Most of the time when singers say this it's BS but I think this was a special case. He said he would give me one last chance to sing it. I said "Thanks, Give me a week and I'll really practice it." Then one day I got in front of that big condenser mic in his home studio and let it out. He looked at me and said "Wow, you really redesigned how you sing this one!" I knew that I had it! We did a few more takes and then the vocals were done and done right.

My favorite part of recording this one was having my cello teacher come in and lay down some beautiful tracks in Biniko's living room. Claire Rydell and Binikos got along so well and it was just a very fun and relaxing day. The cello is probably my favorite instrument tied with guitar. :)

Good times... 

 Someone just asked me, how long have you been in the music business? My reply was:

you could say since I was 14 when I did my first gig at a coffee shop and I made $50 in tips, I was so proud lol...
I also remember drinking too much tea and going to the bathroom and sitting on the floor rocking back and forth hugging my knees trying to calm down before the show started hahaha like a kids version of being all drugged out before a show! rock and roll!!! But seriously drugs are bad mmmkay....also I almost never drink caffeine now, the most i can handle is hot chocolate
