New Music Find – Rachel Zeffira

Last week amongst all the upsetting news, I heard the music of Canadian artist Rachel Zeffira. Her ethereal, celestial voice lifted my spirits.

She is a classically trained opera singer and multi-instrumentalist. On her debut solo album The Deserters, she not only sings, but plays the piano, synthesizers, vibraphone, cathedral organ, violin, viola, oboe and English horn.

She is also part of a two-piece duo called Cat’s Eyes, (Faris Badwan is front man for the other half, The Horrors).

Her music is listed in the following categories: dream pop, indie, alternative, female vocalist, and Canadian. Without a doubt, she is dreamy and an amazing talent.

Her story on NPR can be found here, including a few snippets.

Below are a few videos. Enjoy!
