Rachel Lauren Stevens was born on April 9, 1979 to a Linda and Michael Stevens. The two divorced when Rachel was young and was deeply saddened by the news. Also at a young age Rachel became a model for various advertisements. At 16 Rachel got into a horrible car accident which knocked her two front teeth out. Rachel was approached by agents for 19 Management, outside of a grocery store and was asked to record a few demo’s to audition for an up and coming band, S Club 7!

She was selected along side 6 other members, the band spent 4 years together, and made their away around the world. They recorded 4 albums, which spawned #1 singles such as Don’t Stop Movin’, Never Had A Dream Come True, Have You Ever, among other well known hits.

After the band’s split in June of 2003, Rachel signed a Million Dollar recording contract with S Club guru Simon Fuller, and was picked up by Polydor Records. She recorded her debut album “Funkydory”, in just under two months, The album spawned singles “Sweet Dreams My L.A. Ex” and “Funkydory”, the album was to produce another track “Breathe In, Breathe Out”, but was scraped in favor of new material.

“Some Girls” became Rachel’s third single, and to date her most successful. The single, and the lack of inclusion on her debut album called for a re-release. This saw the recording of what would become the fourth single a cover of a 70′s classic “More More More”. Rachel’s version of “More More More” became the Sky Sports theme for that year, and also became the highest charting version of the song (beating out the 70′s original by Andrea True Connection and Bananarama’s 1993 cover).

Rachel quickly began work on a follow-up album. While recording Rachel appeared in the “Do They Know It’s Christmas” video by Band Aide 20. In March of 2005, Rachel released “Negotiate With Love” which came in at #10 in the UK Charts, this followed by “So Good” which also got to #10 in the charts. In summer of 2005, months before the album was scheduled to be released, a copy of the album was leaked online. After the leak a third single “I Said Never Again (But Here We Are)” (UK #12) was released, and the album “Come And Get It” (UK #26) which was not altered was released a week after!
