My name is Rachel Hutcheson, I am a writer, a songwriter, an actor, outsider, fringe walker, rebel, never went to prom, black sheep, moved to New York City at twenty-three and performed with a boat-load of talented friends: hit the road after six years to see the sky in Chicago and then the Los Angeles sun for ten.
Now I’m writing left of center Peace & Love, Power to the People, You Don’t Own Me, You Broke My Heart, and I Won’t Back Down songs in Nashville, TN. I live with my walk the line husband who I met at a kegger in Kalamazoo, Mi. when I was nineteen.
I’ve been an artist my entire life, never had a corporate job, never worked for the man, never shot a gun and I say what I think because I can. I have worked as a painter, a waitress, a jewelry maker, designer, seamstress and a vendor, I am a dreamer, a “life is a blow your mind miracle” believer, a philosopher, a listener and a be who you are supporter and defender.
I saw back in kindergarten I didn’t fit the mold and the trouble gets worse as the years I live grow. The freer I become the more I want to be free, and the deeper it goes the more I feel like me. I do not know why I am how I am: why I’m not wolf and why I’m not a lamb. But I tell you right now, when it comes to me, there is no other me that I’d rather be.
I don’t like to hide, I don’t like to fake it: Life is art, at least that’s what I named it. I write and I act to entertain and uplift, I am here to inspire and smash the mountain of myths that say you can only be what people say you can be…that’s big pile of shit, you know what I mean?
So I’m writing some books, hanging my flag on my pole and where I’ll end up nobody knows. If you like what I’m saying, if you can feel what I’m thinking, you might just be a different breed, beatnik, black sheep rebel freak like me…©Excerpt from “The Almost True Tales, Thoughts & Observations of a Life Long Black Sheep Rebel Girl
