Rachel Atkins has a vast amount of experience singing and playing piano/keyboards to audiences and venues that range from the smaller Manchester club venues all the way through to world tours in arenas.

Rachel has a phenomenal ability to replicate the iconic keyboard sounds that we all know and love from classic hit records to the finest detail and loves to play music that will get the audience dancing.

She brings glamour and class to a band full of boys and is a highly respected musician in her own right.

Her incredible vocal ability makes her a triple threat on stage. She can easily slip into the role of backing vocals, whilst just as easily step out from behind the keys to lead the songs that fill the floor.  Girl power or what?!
