About Us

Rachel Koller was raised as the third of eight children in the little country town of Santaquin, UT. Being the average
younger sister, she aspired to do absolutely everything her
older sister did...so the instant her sister got into piano
lessons, Rachel was counting the days until she, too, could
start taking. She began piano lessons around age 6 and
instantly loved it. She was very diligent in her practicing and
eager to learn more and become as good as her sister.
Eventually Rachel's sister composed a piano composition
for a school contest, and so the next year, Rachel composed
a piano piece for the same competition. She was in third
grade. The song did pretty well, and she loved the creativity,
so she continued entering the contest with a new piano
piece each year following that first year.With increasing
opportunities to perform the piano in public, Rachel also
began loving the stage...singing was a different story,
however. Rachel was a hidden singer and very timid to sing
unless singing with a CD...volume way up. She dreamed of
what it would be like to be a singer but figured it would never
be in her future, so she pushed the possibility into the back
of her mind until high school when a very good friend forced
her to sing a duet in Provo's Muse Music venue. Scared out
of her mind, she stepped onto the little stage, unsure of what
to expect, but the music began...and she was goners. The
adrenaline rush was incredible, and she knew there was no
turning back. She and the same friend entered the high
school talent show, and she was surprised to place in the
top three and receive such flattering compliments from her
peers. She sang in the talent show again the next year, and it
was the same thing. Her nerves always went crazy before
performing but the adrenaline rush was too much to let go.
She began performing locally and ended up performing in
Salt Lake City's Capitol Theatre as a contestant in Miss
Utah. The bigger stage was scarier, but the adrenaline rush
was also even bigger. Her adrenaline was running high.
Rachel entered college that fall and ended up transferring to
Brigham Young University which had the Media Music
program, designed exactly for her singer/songwriter style.
She also joined BYU's all-female a cappella group
Noteworthy where she co-arranged her original song \"Step
Outside\" into a cappella. The program was extremely
intimidating to say the least. Every student was so talented
and creative that she began feeling lost. Reaching a point
where she wondered why she was in the major, Rachel
finally had a break-through. The realization that she wrote
music for herself and didn't need to fit a mold opened her up
to love again what she had loved so much before. It was
from then on that she began gaining confidence in her
music and enjoying it. She pushed music harder than ever
before, performed more, and wrote more. Her senior year of
college, she made plans to record a CD which project she
started instantly after graduation, and now, has finally
released! She is ecstatic...to say the least :)
