There’s a new face in country music that has quickly grabbed the attention of music lovers across the nation; Raquel & The Wildflowers. This nationally touring energetic powerhouse blends the sound of traditional country music with a rock and roll drive. The band formed in 2019 and are based out of NY.
Though relatively new, they have accomplished a lot in a short time. Raquel de Souza made the transition to pursue her original music in 2017 by releasing her debut solo single “Run Towards the Highway”. The song won a ReverbNation contest that was distributed for airplay. The song charted #32 on DRT Top 50 Country AirPlay charts (2018) alongside global country stars such as Carrie Underwood and Luke Bryan. Soon after, Raquel and her bandmates Cat Lines (fiddle) and Luis Cruz (Guitar) formed and released a new band name; Raquel & The Wildflowers (May 2019). Tommy Carlucci (Drums) later joined the band.
Raquel & The Wildflowers previously performed at Country Fest 2021 with headlining artists Dierks Bentley, Kane Brown, and Thomas Rhett, MUSIK FEST 2021 with headlining artists such as Darius Rucker, ZEDD, Sam Hunt, KT Tunstall, opened for multi-platinum artist Andy Grammer, award winning bands and more.
This high-energy band is so excited to retake the stage in 2021 and bring back the live music that fans have been missing.
