Tishmal is the debut solo project of Rachel Brockbank, a San Diego native currently living in New York City. "Tishmal" means hummingbird in Luiseño, the language of her Native American heritage. This name was given to her as a young girl, around the same time she began to seriously write music.
After years of closet writing, Rachel is now working with producers Mason Porter (Mr. Tape, Goldmyth) and Christian Darais (The Brocks) on her freshman EP to be released January 24th of this year. With heavy beats and brooding, bleeding heart vocals, Tishmal balances expertly at the intersection of light and darkness, finding space for fears and hopes to coexist in the same song.
