She quickly realized bands were her thing as she joined tightly with psychedelic funk heavy hitters Gridline Base Band. Fully immersed in touring state-to-state, Rachel started rubbing elbows with the likes of Trombone Shorty, Kung Fu, and Galactic.
After sometime, Rachel returned to Western NY to practice yoga, massage, and mindfulness - practices which have given her renewed shakti (power) in her music. She has now gathered the crème de la crème of Rochester's talent to have her back in this exciting new project!

From a young age starting at 10 years old, Devin started performing at a wide range of talent competitions. At 14, she began learning the guitar and started playing at open mic nights.

Alongside solo performances, opening for artists from American Idol and the Voice has been an exciting highlight! In the summer of 2016, Devin met her first band members at age 15. The group played an entire hectic summer of shows. Currently, the rock artist is continuing to work on several projects including new music of her own, and enjoys both electric lead guitar and rhythm. “There’s so much feeling in rock.” When it comes to her unique sound, there are several influences. While taking inspiration from contemporary and indie pop songwriters ranging from Taylor Swift to Ed Sheeran, Devin has a passion for rockers of the 80’s and 90’s as well including Aerosmith, Alice Cooper, The Cranberries, and many more. EP “Gemini Rising” is now on YouTube, iTunes, Spotify, ect.
