Rachel Collier

As a die-hard Ableton enthusiast, Collier performs using a multi-instrument technical solo setup. Built around the Push 2 controller, this enables her to perform her studio productions in a live setting.

Gaining significant recognition and experience touring the UK and playing international shows in Paris, Berlin, Czech Republic, India and the USA, Rachel’s debut single “Predictions”, was Sarah Jane Crawford’s ‘Smash’ of the week on BBC Radio 1Xtra.

“A unique talent for intelligent electronic production and head-turning vocals place artist Rachel K Collier in a league of her own. Combining complex beat programming, technical arrangement and meaningful lyric writing. Her one-of a-kind sound is hard to define.”

Ibiza Voice (Oct 2016).

With amazing success as a writer, producer, performer and entrepreneur, this session gave our students a valuable insight into how the industry works, while giving them the chance to see Rachel perform and deconstruct her tracks live combined with a relaxed interview and Q&A session.

A huge thank you to both Rachel and Ableton for giving our students such a great insight into the industry!
