Rachael Lampa
High Hopes

Written by on 14th March 2024

Hey guys, it’s Rachel Lampa here, and I’m so excited about my new song, High Hopes. I wrote this song for anyone that is on a road that they didn’t expect to be on in life. That sees a storm ahead or is in the storm right now. I sing this over you as an encouragement to you that not only is there hope, but God offers us a high hope. A hope that is bigger and better than anything that we can imagine being at the end of this road. Hebrews 11 .1 says, now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. So, I pass this on to you and I hope you enjoy the song, High Hopes.

Singer and songwriter, Rachael Lampa, has seen music industry success since she was 14 years old with multiple number 1’s, 7 albums, Tonight Show appearances among many others, and years of touring with the top Christian and Mainstream artists.  At what seemed like the height of her career, and at the age of 20, Rachael walked away from her record deal with both a feeling of burnout and a sense of curiosity after spending most of her teen years on a tour bus.  Over the next few years, the Colorado-native-turned-Nashvillian continued to release music independently, appeared on NBC’s The Sing Off with other Nashville artists, and toured as a background singer with Jordin Sparks and later with Hozier.

She joined her siblings in forming a ministry in Nashville called People Loving Nashville which provides people who are experiencing homelessness both practical needs and resources, and consistent and genuine friendship and community.  They have just celebrated 15 years of service, having never missed a Monday night outreach. Rachael spent a lot of time with women through prison ministry which re-awoke a desire in her to write songs again.

During the pandemic in 2020, Rachael started to dream again and from what started as a conversation between a few of friends at a bible study (Andrew Ripp and Ethan Hulse), new music was born. “I finally feel like I am making music out of a place of freedom, instead of striving. A lot of my identity was wrapped up in achievement and performance when I was younger.  Now I just feel like I get to do it because I enjoy this gift from the Lord and get to give glory to Him through it from a free and honest place.” Rachael’s #1  song, Perfectly Loved, is a song inspired by both her inner-healing journey and her work with People Loving Nashville.  This has become a theme for many of her new songs including “Wild Ones” and her newest release “Somebody To You”.

In the midst of all of this, ask her what her richest accomplishments are, and you’ll hear a lot more about the relationships that have formed her on the road, the fans that have become dear friends, the beauty that has bridged impossible gaps in service to the marginalised and the miracle of her own growing family and sense of home. Even while her own story continues to unfold, Rachael’s driving passion is to elevate the stories of those around her, using the vehicle of soul-filled music to help her access hearts in a way nothing else could. Her new music is an organic continuation of Rachael’s journey, both musically and lyrically and is bridging the gap between the fans that grew up with her and some brand new ones too.
