Singer, composer and multi-instrumentalist Rachel Eckroth’s first release on Rainy Days Records unveils fresh sounds from her evolving artistry. Steeped in synth orchestration, her new GRAMMY-nominated album, The Garden reflects a nuanced exploration of sonic impulses and inquiries alongside Eckroth’s signature layered compositions and glimmers of trance-inducing vocals. With contributions from acclaimed guitarist Nir Felder, saxophonists Donny McCaslin and Andrew Krasilnikov and modular synthmaster Austin White, and a core band featuring bassist Tim Lefebvre and drummer Christian Euman, The Gardenemerged conceptually while Eckroth was composing new music during the pandemic.“Everything on the album has a different feel to it — different colors and textures,” says the West Coast artist. “It felt like a garden. So we just rolled with it.” Eckroth began composing for big bands and large ensembles early in her career. Those years spent writing very deliberately and creatively using different textures andcompositional arcs have had a compelling influence on her songwriting and her artistic identity as a solo artist. The Garden comprises her experiences as a collaborator in a variety of contexts — including features with Rufus Wainwright, St. Vincent, KT Tunstall, Donny McCaslin, Tia Fuller and Chris Botti — over the course of her career so far.
