Rachel Reinert has announced the arrival of her debut solo album Into The Blue due out on Friday, March 13th. Fans can get an exclusive first look at the album artwork today. Reinert took to social media for the announcement adding, “Four years in the making. It’s been a beautiful, challenging, liberating, humbling, and healing journey. These songs are my heart. My truth. My path to self-discovery. My deepest reflections.”
The album follows Reinert’s successful 2019 single “All We Have” and marks her first full-length project since her work with the hugely successful country group Gloriana. Since departing Gloriana, Rachel has honed in on crafting her California-country sound as a solo act. “I’m a huge Stevie Nicks fan. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers,” she shared with Rolling Stone. “All the music that came from that era was such an inspiration for me, so I wanted that to be the landscape. As well as my roots of being a native to California. I spent my formative years out there. But I’m also deeply rooted in the Nashville songwriting world. I wanted to find a way to marry those two concepts together.”
With Gloriana, Rachel performed hits like “Wild At Heart,” and the platinum-selling “(Kissed You) Good Night.” Together the group toured with Taylor Swift, Sheryl Crow and Rascal Flatts and won multiple awards including an Academy of Country Music award for Top New Vocal Group, an American Music Award for Breakthrough Artist of the Year and a CMT Music Award.
