ROUND 1 of our Song Search for The Storyteller concluded with an impressive amount of great submissions. The producers of the film have now carefully listened to all submitted songs and have chosen six artists, from whom they’ve requested a rough demo of an original song written specifically for The Storyteller.
Allow us to introduce to you, one of the six; Rachel VanSlyke.
In the spring of 2008, this adventurous music maker set out on a 26 plus-city tour sprawling from South Florida to Canada. Many of the shows involved raising awareness and funds for local community bike co-ops and community centers – which explains why she did this 4,100-mile journey on a bicycle. This solo/self-supported, pedal powered trek was both to promote the new album, and raise awareness for sustainability and environmental issues. Her most recent release, Help is on the Way (February 2015), has all ready received 4 songwriting awards.
