“They say hurt people, hurt people. I found that to be so true, but I also believe that Empowered people, Empower people. Breaking Free and Healing from the toxic cycle of abuse is absolutely possible. Some people just need a little help to get the courage to find their path to freedom. I hope this song can be that for them.” ~ Rachel Cruz.
ABOUT RACHEL CRUZ
Like a modern day siren, Rachel lures her listeners in with haunting melodies and a soulful voice. Once entranced, she takes her captives on a journey of self-discovery and empowerment guiding them safely through the storms and shipwrecks of life. Engrossed with the rhythmic vibes of her culture, this Hawaiian Native began playing the ukulele, eventually writing her own lyrics and melodies.
Though her creativity was heavily influenced by her island home, her taste in music contrasted the happy and light-hearted sounds of the islands. Instead, she found solace in artists like P!nk, Evanescence and Adele who’s music mirrored the hardships and realities she faced in her own life. Behind the lights, cameras and smiles, Rachel was haunted by traumas and abuses she’d been going through for years.
Music became the catalyst that helped her to truly find her voice. It is no secret that life is hard, but in a world that can leave you feeling cold and forgotten, her lyrics offer hope reminding others that they are not alone.
