Imagine growing up in Alaska. For many, that thought seems difficult to imagine. For Rachele Lynae, growing up in the "Great Outdoors" is what made her who she is today.

At 16, she began playing professional shows. Rachele then began touring at 17. We then spoke about what it was like touring at that age. Listen as she recalls what her friends would say to her during those times.
Rachele Lynae is a very focused and driven artist. She has been involved with every aspect in creating her music. We spoke about co-producing with Jamie O'Neal and what she has learned from her.
