Performing at venues all over the country, Rachel has shared the stage alongside national acts such as Teddy Gentry of Alabama, Colton Dixon of American Idol, and country music Opry performers such as Smithfield and Drew Baldridge.

Rachel recently released a full-length self-titled album featuring her unique sound branded as a mix of “sweet country” and eclectic folk. Rachel’s record was produced by AGMA’s 2013 producer of the year, Donna King. “I really feel like the organic collaboration and musical understanding Donna and I have between one another can only be put as spiritual. My goal for this record was to make something that felt like magic- and I feel like we did just that,” says Rachel.

It’s not only Rachel’s record that holds elements of magic. At every live performance, Rachel has been known to leave listeners with an undoubted sparkle in their eyes.

Mr & Mrs Something @ Eleven Winery

Mr & Mrs Something @ Eleven Winery | Bainbridge Island | Washington | United States

Weaving the soulful passion of blues and rock with the honesty of folk, Mr. & Mrs. Something offer a refreshing taste of hope that feels like coming home.

The blending of two voices is a wondrous thing. The joining of two lives is even more beautiful. How rare and wonderful when the same two voices and the same two lives sing together in harmony.

One sunny day in early 2010, Chelsea Lidstrom began to jam a tune on her harmonica. Benjamin “Bino” Peck proceeded to harmonize with her on his harmonica. Out of that jam was born their first collaborative song, “Home Will Be.”

After a year apart—Bino in California and Chelsea in Washington—they reunited in Seattle in 2011, and that led to more songwriting. Their first demo of original songs included the couple performing on 12 different musical instruments. The newly forming duo was a match made in heaven—romantically and musically.

In 2012, Bino and Chelsea tied the knot and soon began performing concerts, as well as writing and recording film music. The Closure Soundtrack included the song, “Break These Chains,” which won a Seattle radio contest, Spirit 105.3’s Local Music Project, thanks to a huge fan vote.

Bino had previously formed a band with his brother, Jerome, called “The Something Bros.” When Chelsea married Bino, she took his name, and they became Mr. & Mrs. Peck. When she married him musically, she took his musical name, and they became “Mr. & Mrs. Something.”

Mr. & Mrs. Something actively write, record and perform music that walks a tightrope stretching between the struggles of life and lasting hope.

Come see them somewhere, sometime … they are something you won’t want to miss.
