Canadian songstress and slide guitarist Rachelle van Zanten, whose raw melange of blues, folk, Americana and serious guitar-shredding is currently shaking up an audience of its own.

After 11 years in the trenches, Canadian slide guitarist Rachelle van Zanten is done with bands. In 2006 she released her first solo album, "Back to Francois", which is packed with funky blues riffs and stellar slide performances. The surprise is that van Zanten juxtaposes her gutsy guitar playing with very personal and introspective lyrics - a stylistic trait she attributes to her diverse influences. - Guitar Player Magazine

She has come a long way from her bluegrass upbringing in the foothills of northern British Columbia, recently recording a rock album with producer Joby Baker (Cowboy Junkies, Alex Cuba, The Weakerthans, Mae Moore) and world-renowned sound engineer, Tchad Blake (Sheryl Crow, Paul Simon, Tom Waits, Richard Thompson, Los Lobos, Pearl Jam). Rachelle is a unique and eclectic Americana singer-songwriter. Rachelle has performed with Feist, Blue Rodeo, Clarence Gatemouth Brown and Sue Foley; and has supported Indigo Girls, Eagle Eye Cherry and Dar Williams. Rachelle's recent tour schedule took her through Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany, Holland, Belgium, France, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, India and Nepal.

In her "spare" time, van Zanten in the producer of Canada's Rocker Girl Camp, a motivational music camp for young women ages 10-17. (www.rockergirlcamp.com) http://www.rachellevanzanten.com
