Rachel Mae Hannon is a soulful vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer from Monaghan, living in Dublin. Her sound can be described as where pop meets neo-soul. The low range of her vocals and her eloquent use of harmonies as well as instrumentation gives her a distinctive soul pop sound.
Since her first release in 2020, her music journey has been a very exciting one. Her debut release 'Be In Love' has clocked up over 500,000 streams on Spotify, and her recent release 'Work It Out' will soon reach the 300,000 mark.
In 2022 alone, RMH supported HAIM at the Trinity Summer Series, Tom Odell in The 3Olympia and played the main stages of festivals such as Electric Picnic, Sea Sessions, Indiependence, We’ve Only Just Begun and New Year’s Festival Dublin 2022. Rachel made her TV debut on RTÉ One’s New Year’s Eve Show hosted by Jenifer Zamperelli who suggested Rachel as being ‘tipped for international stardom’ in 2023 and dueted with Danny O’Reilly from The Coronas as part of RTÉ’s The Main Stage, ‘Unseen Songs’.
In 2021, Rachel Mae Hannon’s sold out her headline gig upstairs in Whelan's, which was then followed by a sold out headline gig the following year in Workman’s main room (both presented by MCD). This proves her ever-growing fan-base, dedicated ticket holders and ongoing support. All of RMH's tracks have gained national and international airplay, while her TikTok viral videos show her covering songs such as 'The Humours of Whiskey' and many more.
'The Boys' IS OUT NOW! RMH's next headline gig will take place on October 20th 2023 in Whelan's main room (presented by MCD). Tickets on sale now via ticketmaster.ie. With more releases and gigs set in motion, there's no doubt, this year is set to be a big one for Rachel Mae Hannon.
