Listen on NPR Music’s All Songs Considered
Nova Scotia-born and Toronto-based artist Rachel Bobbitt announces today that she has signed to Fantasy Records. To celebrate, she shares a remarkable song entitled “More” alongside an accompanying, cinematic visual. Featuring gorgeous and tightly woven layers of vocals, and a warmly arcing electric guitar, “More” is a timely song about “navigating the medical system as a woman whose pain is often disregarded as inevitable,” Bobbitt explains. She sings, “They say the body’s just a thing to house the mind / But mine keeps betraying me night after night.” Bobbitt explains further, “It’s all about this body that I have, suffering from the migraines I’ve inherited from my mom, but it’s also about how some people see women as being made for having children, something I don’t even necessarily want at this point.”
Check out the new single, produced by Rachel Bobbitt and Justice Der, mixed by Grammy-nominated Jorge Elbrecht, and its stunning video HERE, and listen to it via NPR Music’s All Songs Considered HERE.
She found herself in a serious cycle of introspection during the pandemic, having just decided to leave the jazz program at Humber College and focus on her own music. She holed up in Saskatoon to write, the negative temperatures seeping their way into the compositions even while her indelible warmth radiates throughout. “More” is the first taste of what’s to come from Bobbitt – stay tuned for more soon.
