Rare Faction

Genres: Electronica, Indie, Neo-Soul, Singer/Songwriter


Rare Faction is a collaboration between guitarist and live-looper extraordinaire Shane Dooley and off-the-cuff songstress Courtney Wachtel. Layers of lush sonic soil are laid by Shane's guitar being created and layered live while Courtney's formidable vocals deftly plant seeds of sound growing into towering things of beauty. Improvisation and long-form songs are common for Rare Faction, be prepared to be taken on a journey. Think Sylvan Esso meets Explosions in the Sky, Four Tet meets Daughter.
