Americana artist Rachel Gleddie has released her superb single ‘Catacomb’ in May 2020. It is indie-folk at its finest, and Gleddie is making waves following its release.
A beautifully picked acoustic guitar opens the single. Gleddie’s soulful vocals swiftly join it. They are filled with warmth and luscious tone. A kick drum appears, and it feels like the heartbeat of the song. We love the subtle backing instrumentation, which creates a solid foundation for the quality songwriting to shine. The rich and driving chorus is thoroughly compelling and enjoyable too. Gleddie knows how to captivate the listener and hold their attention effortlessly.
Gleddie says, “This song is about being your own biggest obstacle, and the sense of freedom that we can obtain when we free ourselves from our own restrictions and open up to the outside world with all that it has to offer.” When asked if there were any notable or amusing happenings surrounding the recording, Gleddie says, “Too many chocolate brownies were consumed during the making of this song!”
This Canadian artist cites her influences as Joy Williams and Kacey Musgraves. We can hear these artists coming through in ‘Catacomb’ but make no mistake; Rachel Gleddie is a formidable artist in her own right. Her passion and drive have made ‘Catacomb’ into a single which is destined to stand the test of time.
Gleddie also worked with JUNO nominated team, Towers on ‘Catacomb’ who produced the single. Together the team have done an excellent job in creating a single which is rich in texture and warmth.
We are so excited to have discovered Rachel Gleddie’s music; she is a credible and innovative artist. We very much look forward to following her career in the future!
