Little Rachel and the Rhythm Busters

Gaslight Gardens

They call her Little Rachel because she is only five feet tall, but this petite blues singer packs quite a punch. Little Rachel exploded on to the 1950s scene in 2000 alongside her sister Caroline as the exuberant Austin-based rockabilly duo The Casey Sisters. They released two albums on the Swedish label Tail Records that earned them acclaim for their strong harmonies, versatility, and authentic '50s sound. After four years of riding high with The Casey Sisters, Little Rachel decided it was time to return to the blues roots of her hometown of Kansas City and pay homage to some of her favorite artists such as Little Richard, Etta James, Wynona Carr, Little Willie John, and Big Mama Thornton.
