Originally from Hawaii, Rachel Faagutu has her musical roots firmly planted in the soil of her Hawaiian-Portuguese heritage. Her first stringed instrument was the ukulele followed by the Hawaiian slack key guitar. Her love for writing, singing and performing her own music grew after she married singer/songwriter, Wallace Faagutu. Rachel’s music is an expression of her soul, each song delivered from her heart. Stylistically, she is an expression of the cultural melting pot in Hawaii.
