Regarding the track streaming above, Weiss proudly acknowledges in her interview with American Songwriter that she wrote “Dark Is Coming Soon” with Jeff Buckley very much in mind: “I decided to use a few chords from Jeff Buckley’s “Lover, You Should Have Come Over” in the chorus and that inspired me to finish the song with him in mind. So, ultimately, it’s about two men that have influenced me greatly: Jeff Buckley and a former love of mine.”
Rachel will release her next EP, Always, on September 9, 2014 and she is playing an EP release show on September 8th at Rockwood Music Hall. Weiss is scheduled to take the stage at 9:30PM and 'cover' is the usual 'one drink per set'.
Inspired by the work ethic of her mother, the famed actress Kathleen Turner, Weiss has worked tirelessly over the past year and a half. She is now capping off a successful first half of 2014 in which she performed a number of enthusiastically received shows. She kicked off the spring with sold-out shows in New York City and a March showcase at The Heart of Austin, presented by Sony. Weiss then made her London debut at The Match Bar in June. The Always EP release will include “Dark Is Coming Soon” as an ‘instant gratification’ track. With a pre-release purchase of the EP the fan will collect “Dark Is Coming Soon” immediately. The rest of the EP will be delivered on release date: September 9th, 2014. Weiss is now preparing to go back on the road in September in support of Always.
