Rachel Sepulveda

Musician and Vocalist


Rachel’s musical passion lies in the expressive stylings of classic singers like Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan, and Peggy Lee. Later on she discovered Brazilian Bossa and Samba music and now often sings in Portuguese emulating artists such as Jobim, Gal Costa, and Djavan. Whatever the style or language, Rachel strives to be genuine and sincere with her interpretation maintaining the integrity and intimacy of the music. The quintet highlights the unassuming charisma of some of Columbus’s most talented musicians… Rachel and the guys have played together in numerous other groups for over 10 years. They continue to inspire one another with a genuine camaraderie that centers around a deep love of jazz and spontaneity that just won’t quit!

THE QUINTET: Rachel Sepulveda (vocals), Tony Bonardi (piano), Kevin O’Neill (Sax/flute), Nate Smith (bass), Max “Thunder” Button (percussion)
