Rachele Lynae, a #CMchat “One to Watch in 2014” has been hard at work in the studio getting ready to release a debut album on Jamie O’Neal’s Momentum Label Group. With the album expected in 2014, Lynae has pushed out the first single, “Touch the Stars”.
Much like other music we have heard from the young singer, love is the dominant theme throughout the song. Over the years, Rachele’s sound has matured. In the past, we have heard playful songs such as “Party ‘Til The Cows Come Home” and “Fishin’ For Something” that didn’t really resonate with an older crowd. “Touch the Stars,” which is already being featured as a ‘Highway Find’ on Sirius XM’s The Highway is a valiant effort to reach an audience of all ages.
The song is a tale of a current love that can’t go any higher but to ‘touch the stars’. The chorus reads “we’ve got forever/let’s take it for a ride/when we’re together/baby, we can fly/and touch the stars tonight.” Who cares what the couple is doing as long as they are together? Backing the story of lovers is the powerhouse voice that is unmatched by any other female newcomer. I think “Touch the Stars” could be a song of summer if radio supports this worthy artist.
Watch the sample above and let us know what you think of Rachele’s new song! If you like what you hear, be sure to head over to iTunes and purchase the single.
Overall Grade: “B+” – I love Rachele, her voice, and her personality. Look forward to hearing the whole album so see what else this newcomer has to offer.
