Powerhouse singer and Atlanta native Rachel Lorin is no stranger to storytelling through song, bringing her listeners up close and personal on a journey through love and heartbreak. With her latest single, “Goodbye,” Lorin has penned a soaring tribute to her greatest hero—her father. We are honored to be premiere this emotional tribute song, “Goodbye.”
“‘Goodbye’ has many meanings to me, as I lost my father on Thanksgiving of 2019,” Lorin says. “I chose to immediately take my pain and fly to Las Vegas to release it through music and immerse myself in art to distract myself from harsh reality, saying goodbye to the hardest year of my life along with my beloved father.”
“Many can relate to ‘Goodbye’ with their losses, whether a bad breakup or a death or saying goodbye to a crappy year. I plan on touching the hearts of many with this song that is from the bottom of my heart,” Lorin says. “It’s to lift my listeners and make them realize they’re not alone in loss and in pain.”

From beginning modeling at nine to singing the National Anthem at the US Open at twelve and then eventually launching her musical career on the reality TV series Next Big Thing, her experiences over the past decade have finally helped her find her artistic footing—she’s a rock girl in a pop world.
Lorin is dauntlessly authentic, now shedding her roots beyond teenage pop star into embracing the beauty that is hidden behind glamour. This sensibility is what separates Lorin from her musical contemporaries.

At her core, Lorin is swirling with tenacity and searing bravado, and she’s unafraid to bare it all in her music and its delivery on the stage.
