Teen Star Winner Rachel La Commare Set to Release First Song

Artist Rachel La Commare has announced the upcoming release of her first song, "So Don’t."

In 2012, La Commare won the countywide Teen Star singing competition, accompanying herself on the piano in her own composition. Since then, she has been featured at venues and productions throughout the area.

La Commare was a solo artist at the Mercado de la Guerra stage during Fiesta 2012, performed with Jim Brickman at the Lobero Theatre, appeared in concert on BackBeat Channel 8 and opened for Sara Bareilles at the Granada Theatre. In addition to her performance opportunities, she has continued with her songwriting and has written more than 20 songs in the last two years.

In 2013, La Commare was signed by Lambert Talent Management, and in 2014, Grammy-nominated music producer Steve Dorff asked to record three of La Commare’s songs. Dorff is a legend in the music field as an award-winning songwriter of hits for Barbara Streisand, Kenny Rogers and Whitney Houston, and producer/arranger for numerous other singing stars.

“It’s an incredible opportunity. Steve Dorff is a man of many talents and accomplishments," La Commare said. "I am so excited that he is interested in producing me and my songs.”

To pursue this musical opportunity, La Commare is looking for support from her community.

On Thursday, La Commare and her team launched a KickStarter campaign to help raise funds for production costs such as musicians and arrangements of her music. Her first song, “So Don’t,” will be available only through the KickStarter platform.

“It’s a song that speaks a lot to me,” La Commare said. “It’s about not spreading yourself too thin.”

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
