Violinist Rachel Golub performs, records and collaborates with artists ranging from the Metropolitan Opera to Elliott Sharp, and everything in between. Classically trained, she also has a background in Indian art music that inflects the language of her frequent improvisations. As a solo artist, she has several eclectic projects including a dub-for-yoga collaboration, Go-Ray & Duke; a New-York Harbor sonification, the Liminophone; and a Judaica duo with pianist Steve Beck. Ongoing collaborations include Amayo’s FU Arki-Is-Tra and Alex Skolnick’s Planetary Coalition. As a sidewoman, she has shared the stage with, among many others, David Byrne, Andrea Bocelli, Adele, Florence + the Machine, Iggy Pop, Lady Gaga, Paul McCartney, Damon Albarn, Bruce Springsteen and Suzanne Vega. Recent recordings with James Taylor, Zayn Malik, Roger Waters, Goldspot, Chromeo, Darlene Love, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros and Ute Lemper. An avid distance-swimmer, Rachel was the sixth person in history to swim across the beautiful but frigid Strait of Magellan, wearing only a bikini, cap and goggles.
