Rachel Marie is a cunning wordsmith, and precociously sophisticated. Clear and mature vocal production colors songs that are relevant, relatable, and far-reaching. The social awareness of folk meets the introspection of the singer-songwriter tradition with a moderate dose of snark.

I'm a classically trained pianist and violist, and a largely self-taught guitarist and singer. I like to write songs. Check out my music on my website and my youtube channel, both of which I will get around to updating one of these months. In my day job, I work in a genetic research lab at Harvard where I spend my time unraveling the mysteries of the human genome.

As The Sparrow
As the Sparrow is a folk influenced rock-swing band based around the songwriting of Mark Damon. In 2009, while majoring in Theater at Salem State University and working as a professional actor in downtown Salem, Ma, Damon decided that his heart belonged to music. After writing an album's worth of songs he teamed up with his longtime friend Kenneth Mckeen, who in the fall of 2009, flew in from Michigan after performing in the Johnny Cash musical "The Ring of Fire" on upright bass. Soon after, Leo Fonseca and Yves Francois joined the group on trumpet and percussion.
