About the Band: Raquel & The Wildflowers
Raquel & The Wildflowers is a nationally touring energetic powerhouse that blends the sound of traditional country music with a rock and roll drive. The band was formed in 2019 and is 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). Later Rob Kelly (Drums) and Raphael de Souza(Bass) 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 performance is made possible through support from the Greater Cincinnati Foundation and by American Rescue Plan funds from the City of Cincinnati, administered through ArtsWave.
