Rachel LaFond is a pianist and composer from Seattle, who recently moved to New Zealand. Rachel’s mother was a piano teacher so her relationship with the piano started when she was very young. When she was a teenager she studied music in Austria before returning to the US. Several years ago Rachel and her husband gave up their day jobs (that’s right folks!!) to travel the world. Their travels brought them to New Zealand where Rachel was suddenly inspired and compelled to write. They liked the place so much they moved here, and in no time Rachel wrote, recorded and released her first album. The rest is… well a podcast episode!
