From Montrose:
"Rachel Drew​​ is a wonderful, expressive singer, with an astounding stylistic range - as well as a powerful and arresting songwriter, clearly operating at the top of her art.
Montrose Saloon is very happy indeed to be welcoming Rachel to sing and play whatever songs she likes - with whomever she wants to do them with - on the fourth Sunday of the next several months. Everything we have ever heard Rachel put together on the band-stand is, without fail, of the very highest quality. All hail! We hope she will reside with us for many more months to come as well!

Daughter of musicians, singer-songwriter Rachel Drew grew up near Diversey and Sheffield in the Lakeview neighborhood of Chicago. She could hear the Ravenswood El from her bedroom at night, along with folks spilling out of bars. She has been making up tunes for as long as she can remember, and began to write lyrics to those melodies back in 2007. She's now written hundreds of songs.

Her first album of 15 originals, called "Under the Sun," was released in February 2016. She plays solo, duo, and with her originals band, Rachel Drew & the Bitter Roots, which features Alton Smith on piano, Gerald Dowd on drums, Dave Nelson on guitar, and John Abbey on bass. The sound is a unique mix of mid-60s R&B, early-70s Linda Ronstadt, Roy Orbison, and some classic country.

Whether inspired by dreams, family, or heartbreak, her songs have a haunted, aching quality. Rachel also performs with Tony Richards, Peter Joly Group, Phil Angotti, Great Moments in Vinyl, and many more ace players in and around Chicago.
