Rachel Eisenstat is a Denver-based musician splitting her time between teaching, songwriting, recording, and performing. Vocal coaching and longer-term voice lessons with Rachel are enhanced by her ongoing work as a professional singer. Active in several voice pedagogy and music industry organizations, she incorporates personalized up-to-date information with each client.
Rachel is one half of the electronic pop duo Sugar Nova, with Luke Miller of Lotus. She has recorded two studio albums under the moniker Raven Jane and fronts the Janis Joplin tribute band Flower in the Sun. She has recorded session vocals and has been a guest performer with numerous local and national acts. She sings at weddings and other special events with the Diamond Empire Band.
Rachel has been gigging since she was ten years old. Long before her first voice lesson, she was a kid in a Led Zeppelin cover band. Since then, she has moved on from the tiny stage at the St. Anne’s Coffee House in her small Appalachian hometown to perform at iconic Colorado venues such as Red Rocks, Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom, the Fox Theatre, and the Oriental Theater.
Rachel is a Level I certified Somatic Voicework instructor, and a member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing. She studied commercial contemporary music (CCM) with Kate Emerich, B.M., M.S., CCC-SLP. She previously studied classical and jazz voice under Dr. Debra Detwiler at Goshen College, where she also trained in music theory and classical guitar. Prior to launching Stage Native, Rachel was on the teaching staff at Performance High in Denver, CO, the Loveland Academy of Music in Loveland, CO, and the T.G. School of Music in Goshen, IN.
