Rachel is the creative impetus behind Foxfire, pulling influences from her Appalachian family history (not only did she grow up on the original Rocky Top—Signal Mountain, just outside of Chattanooga—she grew up surrounded by bluegrass...two of her uncles are in a bluegrass band called The Dismembered Tennesseans) and the rock and roll, punk rock, and hard rock that has inspired her all her life. This is her first performing band, but she immediately seems at home with any audience—whether she's leading the band in a fist-shaking anthem or sludging them through a thick, doomy, brain-melting sonic assault. Her powerful vocals command attention, while her guitar sound rips like a chainsaw...all the while standing on the solid foundation that is the Foxfire rhythm section.
