He is We

Rachel Taylor found inspiration for the name He Is We while growing up in the San Juan Islands of Washington State. Although shy and awkward, Rachel found empowerment through her love for music and God. She quickly learned to focus her nervousness into writing and singing. She took a leap of faith and shared her music with others. Rachel discovered that music provided a way for her to connect. This was the motivation for her to use her music to reach others like her. Rachel has always said that the band name He Is We, which she created before she became a teenager, symbolized “dropping our pride and fear and recognizing that the person(s) on stage and in the audience is us.” “We can all connect through music and use it to support and help one another.” She moved to Tacoma at 18 and formally formed the band, He Is We. Rachel signed a music deal with a major label and she “birthed” the album, My Forever, and then the EP, Skip to the Good Part. He Is We found commercial success with songs like Happily Ever After and All About Us. Early fan favorites also included songs, which pre-date the labels, like I Wouldn’t Mind and Pardon me. He Is We is currently independent and Rachel continues her journey to create music with a purpose that unites broken hearts and inspires love for all and ultimately healing.
