Rachel Garlin

T3AIRmoCMAY

Based in San Francisco, Rachel Garlin is a singer-songwriter whose character-filled songs have been noted for their vivid, lyrical imagery and themes that are “fresh and often unexpectedly moving” (East Bay Express). Her April 2015 release, Wink at July, continues in the folk-rock storytelling vein that brought her past accolades from the New York Songwriter’s Circle, Performing Songwriter Magazine, and won her first place in the Newport Folk Festival’s Talent Search.

Wink at July is a collection of 12 new songs (from acoustic solos to full band arrangements) with varied settings: the isles of Scotland, the subways of New York, the hills of the Bay Area. Garlin recorded the album in San Francisco with producer JJ Wiesler (Matt Nathanson, Girls) and musicians Michael Urbano (John Hiatt, Smash Mouth), Prairie Prince (Journey, The Tubes) and many others including Garlin’s friends and longtime collaborators Green, Kate Isenberg, Jon Evans, and Julie Wolf.

The lively lead-off track “Gwendolyn Said” stems from a childhood memory of riding the public bus to school while reading the poetry-rich bus billboards overhead, including a piece by poet laureate Gwendolyn Brooks with the words: “Exhaust the little moment, soon it dies.” In the spirit of those same words, Garlin has created an album that is real, in the moment, and dancing with imagery. In it, there are stories inspired by friends and family members, painters and public figures, landscapes and loss.

Rachel Garlin

Flying Moose Pictures was asked to design and produce a music video for the release of Rachel’s new album, Wink at July.

From the Berkeley Hills to the Isles of Scotland, from Keith Haring’s graffiti to the studio of an elusive artist, from the poetry of Gwendolyn Brooks to letters and words exchanged between friends and loved ones, Rachel Garlin guides her listeners on a winding road of language, images, and the creative process in her latest album, Wink at July. Tonal ballads and bandy melodies provide a seamless interplay of storytelling and music that encourage listeners to reminisce, celebrate and take solace while navigating our shared human existence. For all its descriptive strength, the 12-song album might be compared to a cherished book of vignettes, except that there is a poetic element, something beautiful and evocative that infuses each song with lyrical as well as narrative power.
