Pop/Soul Singer-Songwriter uplifts and unites Breast Cancer Community with poignant, humorous, and trailblazing music project
— Donnie Lyle
WASHINGTON, D.C., UNITED STATES, October 28, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Rachel Burns is a Stage III Breast Cancer Survivor and Pop/Soul songwriter who focuses on creating music that feels personable, original, and one-of-a-kind. The songwriter has released a new project titled ‘Living My Breast Life.’ Coinciding with Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the project is an opportunity for Burns to spread the word about something she is genuinely passionate about and reach out to the community with an important message. Starting on September 30th, the artist began unveiling tracks weekly and donating a portion of proceeds from the sales to breast cancer organizations.
The experience of making this record happen was nothing short of extraordinary. “I had the pleasure of working with Rachel in the studio and learned about her love for life, family, and caring for people when recording her. The passion of this naturally gifted vocalist made it a wonderful experience!” – This is how producer Donnie Lyle recalls his time spent working with Burns in the studio.
That same feeling of love and care seeped into this record, giving the songs a lot of warmth and heart. ‘Living My Breast Life’ features five songs. The opener, “I Did It,” is an inspiring song with personal lyrics. “Hope Is a Tricky Thing” offers a soulful sound with shades of 60s Motown aesthetics. The varied creative range on the EP is a fantastic testimony of Burns’ distinctive tone and personality. There is also room for a ballad: “Not Today.” The track is one of the most emotional moments on the EP due to its heartfelt lyrics and lush piano phrasing.
Fans of classic songwriting will appreciate Burns’ take on “I Can See Clearly,” as made famous by Johnny Nash (and Jimmy Cliff, who also released a stunning rendition of this classic). This cover song ties superbly with the concept of the EP, as it relates to finding hope and a new perspective, even after the rainiest days. “Hangy Sallys” is the perfect curtain closer. This autobiographical ode has a vintage vibe, reminiscent of 1950s pop and gospel sounds – albeit with a contemporary spin.
