Over the Summer, Chris Rafetto (of Honor By August) and I teamed up to record my debut single “Secret’s Safe” which was inspired by Off The Record-OBX. Chris recorded, mixed, and produced the project and it was an absolute pleasure collaborating with someone whose work I was already a HUGE fan of. Evan Field also joined us to add his epic electric guitar stylings to the track. We’re all really excited for you to hear it!

unrehearsedDC – ‘Nearly Broken’ (acoustic) video

“Generally, when one breaks their foot it puts he or she out of commission for the duration of their recovery. When we heard that Rachel Levitin had broken her foot due to a freak subway accident, we asked her if we could make her and her foot the focus of our next video. Singing “Nearly Broken”, a song written about her relationship with her father during his heart transplant, Rachel performs from the very place she’s been recovering from for the past two months: her couch in her tiny studio apartment in DC. Not opposed to making house calls, we thought this video turned out very nicely. Hey, we even signed her cast.” – unreahearsedDC
