“The ‘Unboxed’ Mixtape
In a world where the mixtape seems to have given way to the EP and is more frequently a music tool used by rappers than singers, Rachel Kerr has relentlessly come to break the mould. Known for her powerhouse vocal ability and explosive stage presence, the award-winning singer uses this 16 track FREE mixtape download to showcase the diversity of her world class songwriting ability. With every track on the mixtape penned by the international songstress the ‘Unboxed’ mixtape showcases everything from Trapsoul reminiscent of Torey Lanez and Bryson Tiller to the nostalgic RnB sounds of Aaliyah to the vintage vibes of soul legends such Sam Cooke and Amy Winehouse. This all rounder does it all.
When asked about the mixtape’s title ‘Unboxed’ the singer said:
‘Everyone experiences being limited in one way or another, but at this stage in my life I’ve seen so many achievements that I’m convinced nothing is impossible. Now, I’m all about breaking barriers, smashing ceilings and soaring outside of human imposed boxes.’
More than simple covers Rachel takes each popular instrumental to share her inspirational message and heart-felt lyrics through her soulful and at times caribbean inspired vocals.
This is undoubtedly the must-have download of the year and… it’s FREE!
Ladies & gentlemen Rachel Kerr’s ‘Unboxed’.”
