Rachel Hickey

Rachel Hickey is an emerging independent singer-songwriter based between Kitchener-Waterloo and Toronto, Ontario. Following her 2021 debut EP Getting By, Rachel’s sophomore 2022 EP So Long further evolves her indie/folk sound, and earned her coverage in Exclaim! magazine as well as plays on CBC Radio One. Rachel’s musical style can be described as folk-focused with a blend of indie, folk, pop, and rock music inspired by Canadian artists like Joni Mitchell, Basia Bulat and Hey Rosetta!. Often centring around guitar, Hickey’s feeling-packed sound incorporates atmospheric supporting tones, strings, and traditional drums, using storytelling and descriptive imagery to captivate listeners. Rachel is currently performing live across Ontario in support of her latest EP and is preparing for her debut full-length album, “The Eve of St. Agnes”, due out in Spring 2023.
