WOODSTOCK - Nashville has the Bluebird Cafe, but Woodstock has the Early Bird Cafe.

Rachel Hickey is originally from Woodstock and she's going to be playing a show at the Early Bird Cafe tonight and tomorrow night.

Music wasn't always her game plan. She went to the University of Waterloo for psychology and English and decided to start a band called Midnight Shift with some of her friends. Hickey says they went their separate ways once she graduated.

"In 2020 we kind of fell apart a little bit so I started to write my own music that was a lot more personal to my own life with the singer-songwriter vibes instead of the alt-rock thing we were doing. All of that experience still lives in me though."

She has since released some of her own music on Apple Music and Spotify and will be releasing her first album next month. Hickey was able to talk about her music on the Heart FM morning show today.

"Definitely singer-songwriter vibes like Joni Mitchell with lots of storytelling and emotionally driven songs."

She released her latest single titled It'll Be Good on Wednesday and she played a small piece of it live on Heart FM. We also played the recorded song for the first time on the radio.

The doors will open for the Early Bird Cafe shows at around 6:00 p.m. tonight and tomorrow. Greg Szabo will hit the stage for his own 45-minute set at 7:00 p.m. followed by Hickey's 45-minute set at 8:00 p.m.

Tickets cost $20 each on Eventbrite and they're selling out fast. There were only five left for tonight's show as of this morning and 10 remaining for tomorrow night's performance.
