Rachelle van Zanten

About: Rachelle van Zanten

Rachelle van Zanten is back with her third full-length album, "Oh Mother". Known for her powerful live performances and equally powerful social activism, the acclaimed Canadian slide guitarist/singer pulls no punches on this record. Produced by multiple award-winner Joby Baker (The Cowboy Junkies, Alex Cuba, Mae Moore), the album showcases van Zanten's skills as a guitarist and songwriter in equal measure. "Oh Mother" blends van Zanten's socially conscious lyrics with dirty guitar riffs and soulful singing in a way that neatly captures the essence of her northern British Columbia origins...as well as all the issues the region currently faces. "Rachelle van Zanten is our voice, the muse of the North. She writes songs to inspire the wind, give voice to thunder, and fire the hearts of all those fighting to protect the land she loves so dearly."- Wade Davis, National Geographic

The 11 tunes on the album are an intense mix of van Zanten's deep connection to the landscapes of northern BC and her own personal stories of loss, grief, and joy. "Van Zanten juxtaposes her gutsy guitar playing with very personal and introspective lyrics." (Guitar Player Magazine)

These stories of new motherhood, loss, and landscape are captured not only in her raw, moving lyrics, but also in her intricate guitar riffs and intoxicating vocal melodies.

The 19 year internationally acclaimed road warrior is now in the process of creating a children's album. Look for this album come spring 2015.

Request "I Fight For Life" on radio or purchase the track online and van Zanten will donate all royalties to Skeena Watershed Conservation Coalition Kids Camps.
