Swinging for the fences over a vocally soaring track that is smooth and sweet, Colorado Rockers, Rachel & The Ruckus, embrace the modern guise of the Country music scene and mix a dose of Rock from their neck of the woods into the mix over “Water & Oil”. Remaining true to her roots, Rachel confidently proclaims the dead-honest truth of her love over a thumping beat that will get stuck in your head as the lyrical acknowledgment of both the good and the bad creates a classic feel-good track.
Pouring out their heart and soul, Rachel & The Ruckus have lyrically hit a crossroad within an important encounter throughout “Water & Oil”, and their candid songwriting displays a mastery of thought and self-assurance of the separation to come and the new road that they’re traveling down.
Rachel & The Ruckus get real over a track that tells the tale of appreciating and accepting nothing less than another’s standout quirks, wounds that they’ve transformed into wisdom, foreign characteristics, nagging ticks, distressing insecurities and unique talents that have aided in the development of their self-confidence and appreciation of their luxuriant self. Enhancing the track with instrumentals steeped in both traditional Country and Rock music, Rachel & The Ruckus’ blend of sensitivity and gusto sheds light on the musical capacity of the band that backs their mission of spreading soulful messages that need to be heard.
Rachel & The Ruckus are no rookies to the game as they have opened up for Nashville legend, Jimmy Hall, and rocked the stage at Crestone Music Festival, Parker Days, Colorado State Fair, Adams County Fair and Arapahoe County Fair. If you’re a fan of artists such as Sheryl Crow, Dixie Chicks, Lady Antebellum and Little Big Town, then Rachel & the Ruckus is next up for your list if you’re interested in a Country/Rock fix.
