Rachael Dadd is from Bristol, UK. She has performed to audiences of up to 3000 and in recent times has taken to the stage at festivals including Glastonbury, End of The Road, Green Man, Wilderness, No Direction Home, Truck, and many others. Outside of festivals, Rachael has played headline tours in the UK, Europe, and Japan, and has also oured in the company of David Thomas Broughton, Alessi’s Ark, Francois & The Atlas Mountains, This Is The Kit, and Rozi Plain.
She is also an experienced collaborator and organiser: she co-curated The Local’s SHHH festival in Bristol, achieving her goal to be inclusive of many cultures and forms of expression; she programmed ’Rachael Dadd and Friends’ at King’s Place - a fundraiser for Japan’s Tsunami victims; and she’s curated a group exhibition ’DIY is all you need’ with fellow musicians and artists. Having graduated from art school with first class honors, Rachael is also a practicing and exhibiting artist always putting emphasis on the record sleeve and often making handmade limited editions, thinking conceptually and regularly collaborating with RCA graduate animator and sister Betsy Dadd.
Two years in the making ’We Resonate’ is Rachael Dadd’s strongest and most impacting body of work into the public sphere, an uplifting celebration of life and by far her most collaborative.
It sees Rachael joined by Laura Marling’s sideman Marcus Hamblet, experimental Japanese multi-instrumentalist ICHI, Alessi Laurent-Marke of Alessi’s Ark, Rozi Plain, Emma Gatrill of Sons Of Noel and Adrian, and Thomas Heather of Woodpecker Wooliams.
