An Inspired Tale: Show #1
[Far and Wide] is a wonderful collection that, ranging from indie-folk to poppier melodies, shows off the Californian singer’s effortless talent. Cantu is enchanting—a true storyteller whose seductive singing shakes you to the core. With an album that inevitably leaves a listener in a relaxed yet pensive mood, one can say with certainty that her charming spunk and undeniable talent will take Rachael Cantu far and wide—pun very much intended.

"Far and Wide"
Rachael Cantu is a singer/songwriter known for her evocative blend of indie folk rock delicately infused with distinctly powerful covals, gentle melodies and heartfelt lyrics. Born in Orange County, this SoCal native has the whole package -- it's not wonder she's been aptly described as "something a mix of The Pretenders' Chrissie Hynde, PJ Harvey, Sarah McLachlan and Norah Jones."
As the title suggests, Rachael's second studio album "Far and Wide" (self release Nov. 17, 2009) is an artistic departure from the brooding and moody sounds of her impressive 2006 debut CD "Run All Night" (Q Division), which received critical acclaim as it rocketed up the CMJ Top 200 where it sat comfortably next to artists like Ryan Adams and Neko Case. THe new CD highlights her growth, maturity and evolution as a rising singer/songwriter through musical exploration. Produced by Futcher (The Be Good Tanvas) in Vancouver, the captivation collection of ten eclectic songs with thoughtfully layered arrangements showcase her effortless stylistic versatility, which ranges from upbeat pop, forlorn folk, characteristically haunting pieces and splashes of everything in between. Standout tracks like the ethereal "Devil's Thunder" and touchingly contemplative "Make A Name For Me and You" have attracted the attention of Chop Shop's Alex Patsavas, who featured both songs on ABC'S "Private Practice" in 2009.
In addition to solo shows in Los Angeles and major cities on the East Coast in Summer/Fall 2009, Rachael honed her live show and won over new fans in each city touring with blues legend B.B. King, and opening for generational powerhouses like Pat Benatar and Peter Frampton. Rachael has also previously toured with Tegan & Sara and Ben Lee, and opened for artists like Ryan Cabrera, Joe Pug and Andrew Belle.
