Rachel Chinouriri (@rachelchinouriri) is a 21-year-old singer/songwriter from Croydon. She is the youngest in a large family, and the only child born in England rather than her native Zimbabwe. Rachel attributes a lot of her musical influence to her traditional Zimbabwean upbringing, although it meant she sometimes felt isolated from her British cultural surroundings. At a young age Rachel found solace in writing and recording music, and her limited exposure to pop music and self taught singing/guitar meant she developed a totally unique style.

Rachel’s debut EP ‘Mama’s Boy’ (2019) bursts with a warmth that immediately has you front and centre in the world of Rachel Chinouriri. Festival main stages. Support nights playing with Celeste, Sam Fender and Lianne La Havas. Being named as one of the most influential young people in London by the Evening Standard as a part of their Progress 1000 list. It’s all been seized by an artist bearing herself open to the world - and in turn, capturing what it means to be human.
