Rachel Brandsness: as one door closes so another opens

Rachel Brandsness talks about the end of Fools for Rowan in her latest blog post

Door Closes
Rachel Brandsness: We had the last Fools For Rowan rehearsal on the Thursday before the last show. To say that it was surreal is an understatement. To say that I was pissed off about the way things had played out is also an understatement. I wanted Fools For Rowan to live on for years and years to come, and I don't think that was a na├»ve thing to think at one point. We were so hopeful about the band and where it was going once upon a time. At the point of this last rehearsal it had been clear that the band had been over for almost a year. It doesn’t take a lot to kill a band off. If the unity and drive slips away in any one faction of the band it won't take much for it to fall apart.

That being said, I will never regret investing so much hope in Fools For Rowan. If you don't have hope and drive and an unshakable belief in what you are doing then you don't have a whole hell of a lot. I also accept that if pursuing music isn’isn't what one is meant to do then he or she should be free to leave it and pursue something else. If we don’t follow our guts on these sorts of things what do we follow? Nothing has to be permanent.

Perhaps I needed Fools For Rowan to dissolve to lead me to do what I am doing here and now. Certainly if Fools For Rowan was still in full swing there would be no Rachel Mac & The Revival.

The change has enabled Rachel to work on an upcoming release.

Door Opens
The Rachel Mac & The Revival debut 2 song EP "Enough, My Friend," featuring songs from the upcoming album will be available for purchase on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Spotify, and many more on NOVEMBER 12, 2013. Mark your calendars kids! Here we go!!
