Artist Info: Discography
Album length: 11 tracks
Street Date: July 27, 2004


The young and ever-talented Rachael Lampa hasn't had new music in almost two years but promises fans it'll be worth the wait. With her string of successful records, would it really be a surprise if she delivers or even exceeds expectations?

At nineteen years of age, Rachael Lampa, much like her peer Stacie Orrico or even Jaci Velasquez, possesses one of the best voices teens will find in music relative to their world. Her blend of R&B, pop, and rock makes for one soulful and fun project that packs a punch and heart all at the same time. Her self-titled new record is a leap in songwriting maturity, exploring new musical waters, leaving her mark on each genre along the way. Lampa does her best to avoid genre cliches as the record progresses in variety from rock-flavored pop to a vulnerable and transparent ballad on through. Lyrically nontraditional, "Rubberhouse" is a highlight on the record, showing a more upbeat and groovy side to Lampa, enhanced by a special appearance from hip-hop/rap legend T-Bone. T-Bone breaks out from his normal approach to delivering his rhymes and takes a more subtle route that blends well with Lampa's style. Lampa purists who enjoy more of her softer side won't be left disappointed either with tracks like "No Other One" and "You Never Know."

Listeners looking for something cleaner than "dirrty" Aguilera will want to take a look at Rachael Lampa's diverse new self-titled release. Lampa displays an authoritative presence on her new album that proves she's got a lot to offer and she's only getting started.
