Rachael Price (born 1985) is a jazz vocalist from Hendersonville, Tennessee. She is a graduate in Jazz Studies at the New England Conservatory in Massachusetts. Price is the great-granddaughter of creationist and Seventh-day Adventist leader George McCready Price, and the daughter of musician Tom Price.
In 2003, Price received an honorable mention at the Montreux Jazz Festival's International Jazz Vocal Competition. In 2004, Price was a semi-finalist and the youngest competitor in the history of the Thelonious Monk Institute Vocal Competition. In August 2004 she made her U.S. jazz festival debut at Yale’s Jazz On The Green where she opened for Joshua Redman. She won the 2006 Independent Music Award for Best Gospel Song with her recording of My God, My Adored One with the Boston Praise Collective. She regularly appears in concert as a featured vocalist with the T. S. Monk Sextet, and is currently working with Grammy Award winning record producer K. C. Porter.
Lake Street Dive
Price also performs with Lake Street Dive, a four-piece Boston band she formed seven years ago with Mike Olson, Michael Calabrese and Bridget Kearney, who were students at The New England Conservatory. They began as a "free country band"—as in country music, played free. This concept was quickly abandoned in favor of jazz music, played in an edgy, loose fashion.
With the help of an award from The John Lennon Songwriting Contest, Lake Street Dive recorded their debut CD in 2006, in this episode....
