A north-east singer songwriter yet to perform her material live is preparing to release her second album of 2020.
Aberdeen artist Rachel Jack released her debut EP The Calgary Tapes in July and has almost finished recording her second, due to be released in November.
Despite coronavirus putting paid to any plans for live gigs this year, the 32-year-old is enjoying rave reviews for her material.
“The response to the EP has been really good,” she said.
“I think I spoke about doing it for so long that my friends and family are just relieved I have finally done it.
“I did things the other way round to normal, by doing the song-writing course before gigging, and because of Covid-19 I’ve never really performed live.
“At least I will now have a decent set list when I do.”
Originally from Gardenstown, the former Banff Academy and Robert Gordon University business school student gave up her corporate career, working in travel, brewing and oil and gas industries, to focus on her music in 2018.
That same year she won the University of the West of Scotland’s inaugural Paolo Nutini Songwriting Scholarship.
Her debut five-track EP, recorded at the An Tobar Studios on the Isle of Mull, has featured widely on Scottish radio.
Her next single is due out on October 9, before her second EP Magazine Girl follows in November.
