Rachel Ana Dobken is a quadruple threat (drums, guitar, vocals, piano) with a knack for blending indie-rock, soul and jazz. Described as “My Morning Jacket meets Lake Street Dive,” Her music is raw and honest with a stage presence so emotionally captivating it's been compared to the likes of Janis Joplin and Jeff Buckley.

Dobken’s highly anticipated LP, When It Happens To You, is due out October 24th, 2018 and features Dobken as producer/songwriter, drummer, singer, guitarist, pianist. All photographs for the record were taken by famed rock photographer, Danny Clinch who has worked with Bruce Springsteen, Neil Young, My Morning Jacket, Ryan Adams and many more. Rachel works closely with Clinch as Musical Director at his Transparent Gallery in Asbury Park.

Catch her live at the Album Release show at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2 in New York City, on October 24, 2018, 8:45pm.


Relix described her first single, “Understand," as “smoky, shimmering.”

"It’s a well-balanced piece of production that allows it’s songwriter room to breathe while also demonstrating sonic nuance and style. The end result is an engaging and focused track that represents Dobken’s musical and lyrical strengths and effectively sets the mood for her upcoming release.” - Kenny Bieber of Stars and Scars on “Understand”

Nu Sound has described her as a total “badass.”

“Spontaneous and refined, its classic song structure is electrified by independence and a sparking sense of creative purpose.” - The Autumn Roses on her second single “Always”

Dobken has been featured by The Aquarian Weekly, The Deli Magazine, NJ Arts, Relix Magazine, New York Times, Asbury Park Press, Travel+Leisure and more.
