No stranger to hard work ; performing more than 800 live shows over the past 5
years, Rachael Fahim is one of Australia's brightest country-pop crossover stars!
As the winner of the prestigious "Toyota Star Maker" 2017 competition alongside past alumni such as Keith Urban, Travis Collins and Sam McClymont, Rachael had her eyes firmly set on the prize!
In 2016 Rachael's first 2 singles "Say It" & "Confetti" consecutively charted at #1 and #2
on the iTunes country charts and spent more than 10 weeks in the KIX country radio top 10, but the best was yet to come!...
2018 was a year of highlights for Rachael, who went from strength to strength in her transformation from teen sweetheart into a young, strong woman rapidly building a reputation as the face of the modern country movement in Australia.
The year kicked off with a CMC award nomination for “New Artist of the Year” soon followed by a 19 week rampage that saw her single "Brake Lights" at #2 on the Australian country music singles charts , #1 on CMC, #1 on KIX country, and made Rachael Spotify's highest streamed Australian female Country artist of 2018.
Rachael's much anticipated follow up single "What I Don't Know" was released on Friday the 20th of July 2018.
The track, which again, combined the team of Grammy Award winner Emily Weisband with Sydney based producer ZuZu and mixer Peter Holz was a powerful sing-a-long anthem that again pushed the boundaries that see country-rock and pop music mashed into a radio ready banger that hit #1 at country radio for a consecutive 3 weeks and followed suit on Spotify achieving the million stream mark in a matter of weeks.
Rachael spent the early part of 2019 in the US, having been invited to perform at SXSW (and featuring as the only country artist on the highly coveted Austin 100 from NPR) and lighting a spark in the Nashville songwriting scene. She returned to Sydney inspired by her experiences and with a host of new songs under her belt.
September 2019, Rachael dropped her sophomore EP, titled Iconic, fans scored a further six tracks including a stunning duet feature with fellow Toyota Starmaker winner Brad Cox that was a winner both at Country and Commercial radio accumulating more than 2 million streams.
Shifting her focus momentarily to a group project, Rachael co-founded all female Country Rock supergroup 'Southbound' who's October 2020 release 'Find Our Way' topped the Country charts achieving rave reviews, #1 Country Radio and #1 Australian Independent chart accolades.
A brand new, instantly infectious single, 'Middle Ground' which came out in November 2020 features Rachael’s trademark Cole Clark guitar and powerhouse vocals. Anthemic chorus's and emotion filled lyrics, hitting the irresistible blend of country-pop that Rachael has perfected, that is destined to be the ultimate sing along record of this summer.
