Rachael did her first "gig" at a restaurant in Brunswick on the 4th August to a attentive and appreciative audience. Her voice is really improving and she sang all of her own compositions. One number I liked was Less is More and the Oily Rag. It's a bluesy/country kind of number played on guitar using a lovely open C tuning. Imagine it being sung with a heavy southern American accent and you'll really get it.
She got the expresion 'oily rag' from myself as I told my children when life's difficult you can always manage to live on the smell of an oily rag.
Not a very profound statement but one Rachael seems to have remembered. I have included a link to her website which has all of the words to that song.
