Rachel Glassberg

(Jazzy folky pop)

Rachel Glassberg is an American singer-songwriter based in Berlin. A modern-day Tom Lehrer, her amusing lyrics and sweet melodies conceal the inventiveness and brilliant craft behind the songs. Inspired by songwriting giants like Randy Newman, Jonathan Richman, and John Prine, Glassberg writes melodically rich and lyrically dense songs that relate bittersweet love tales, geeky science stories, real-life historical events and seemingly anything that springs into her mind. Whether stripped down to just her guitar or backed by an overdubbed full band, the songs flow pleasantly while still retaining an intriguing charm. With such fantastic songwriting, the catchiness is happily welcomed and shamelessly enjoyed; and the witty lyrics reward the unavoidable repeated listens. Expect jazz-colored chords, clever wordplay, infectious melodies and a charming quirkiness that creeps up at every turn.
