Rachel Reinert, formerly of the country trio Gloriana, is branching out on her own. After leaving the band in 2016 and marrying her longtime boyfriend Caleb Crosby, the Southern California native has announced the release of her solo debut album, Into The Blue.
“I’m thrilled about finally getting to release my debut solo album this March,” Rachel tells One Country. “It’s been a really long but transformative journey, and I’m ready for the world to hear me through my music. Each song reflects my experiences over the last four years. It’s all about self discovery, love, healing, and stepping out of the darkness and into the blue.”

Following her departure from Gloriana, Rachel focused on her solo music for two years, releasing her debut solo single, “Cool,” in 2018. Influenced by the likes of Fleetwood Mac, The Eagles, Tom Petty and Neil Young, the singer is ready to share her sound with friends and fans alike. In a post on Instagram, she revealed the album cover along with the album’s release date.
“INTO THE BLUE. My first solo full length album, four years in the making. It’s been a beautiful, challenging, liberating, humbling, and healing journey. These songs are my heart. My truth. My path to self discovery. My deepest reflections. Out March 13th.
Rachel’s husband Caleb Crosby also took to social media to share his happiness for his new wife. “So insanely proud of my wife. She has worked SO hard on this project and I couldn’t be happier for her and her team. Get ready💙💙💙 INTO THE BLUE // MARCH 13.”
The new album follows Reinert’s 2019 single “All We Have” and marks her first full-length project since her work with Gloriana.
