Rachele Eve

Hill Stage


Rachele Eve is a fifth-generation Italian American from Detroit, Michigan-- a storyteller and an incurable romantic. The daughter of an opera singer and fine artist, her passion for singing began at a young age. During her highly creative and informative years in Chicago, emerged the desert-rock songstress’ style of confessional and emotionally rich compositions. Her debut album, Mouth of Feathers, is a playful and absurdist account of new love and the shadow of the self. The city life afforded Eve a home in the neo-folk community both on and off stage where she coordinated events and collaboration for local songwriters. A tumultuous love affair inspired her sophomore release, Our Love is Imagined, which she penned with classical guitar. The call-and-response cello vamps sustain the soundscape of these intensely cathartic folk ballads. Yearning for perspective and release from the wormhole of surviving as a self-proclaimed artist, Eve uprooted from Chicago to explore a path of simple living on a remote island in the Pacific. This deeply spiritual and introspective journey invokes Rachele Eve’s forthcoming album, Renunciation, a window into the disintegration and healing of the heart space.

Rachele Eve was named Chicago's Top Local Artist on 93.1WXRT, featured on Daytrotter, and was the first female-fronted outfit to be featured on Audiotree. She has shared stages with songwriters Cass McCombs and Ezra Furman with headlining performances at The Hideout, Schubas, Evanston SPACE, and Lincoln Hall. She has recorded with Chicago favorites, Matthew Santos and Cameron McGill, and spent many years in the city's neo-folk community coordinating events and collaborating with songwriters and performing artists.

"Rachele Eve's voice is conditioned to sound like it's always going to be there for you - a generous amount of huskiness and cream - ready to wrap you up in its arms if that's what you're needing. " - Sean Moeller of Daytrotter
