Rachel Kaplan is a Los Angeles-based jazz vocalist and comedy writer. Known for her "warm, smooth vocals" and endearing witticisms, Rachel has been described as “if Teri Garr and Tina Fey had a baby.” Raised on Judy Garland, Louis Prima, and NSYNC, Rachel sings oldies, standards, jazzed-up contemporary hits, and ukulele originals with self-deprecating charm. Her 2015 debut cabaret “We Have No Bananas” in downtown Los Angeles drew rave reviews as a “spectacular and memorable experience- her sense of humor is almost as good as the music itself.”
Like “an old record come to life,” Rachel has performed around Los Angeles including Vibrato Grill Jazz, Hotel Cafe, Room 5, and Genghis Cohen. She has written music for Netflix’s BoJack Horseman, and worked at Saturday Night Live, The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien, and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
"She’s got this fantastic mix of smooth soul and powerful jazz that blends together to just make you… well, to make you melt a little bit."
