Fatea Magazine (UK)- February 2008
"With a new album on the horizon, it was good fortune that someone recently slipped me a copy of Rachelle Van Zanten's debut album, "Back To Francois. Formerly in Painting Daisies, Rachelle struck out on a solo furrow despite knowing that female slide guitar players have to be twice the quality for half the recognition and that's before they say,'by the way I write and sing my own songs.' One song, "Half Pint", pays tribute to he bluegrass roots, but that apart this is totally underpined by blues. Van Zanten has set a bench mark for her next album and it's a high one. Personally I can't wait."
