Funkcommunity's Isaac Aesili and Rachel Fraser are no strangers to the Music Scene.
Having played, toured and collaborated with some of the NZ's top artists, the prolific pair now join forces to create Chequered Thoughts, a forward-thinking album of future soul music.

It's a collaboration that has been years in the making. Having first worked together on a song called 'I'm All In' from Isaac's debut solo album 'Eye See', Isaac and Rachel's powerful dynamic is finally realized in their debut release.

An accomplished vocalist and songwriter, Rachel Fraser's voice is reminiscent of old school jazz, soul and funk styles infused with contemporary R&B. A lady of many credentials, Rachel first gained international attention with Recloose track, 'Catch a Leaf', and has since been busy performing with bands such as Sola Rosa and Recloose Live.

Isaac also brings a string of credentials to the band. Over the past decade, Isaac has been an integral part of many Kiwi acts Solaa, Opensouls, Recloose Live and Eru Dangerspiel and has toured as a guest musician with iconic New Zealand bands Trinity Roots and Shapeshifter.

He's also co-written songs with Aaradhna, Ladi6, Hollie Smith, Mara TK and Julien Dyne and his session work includes recording for House of Shem, Homebrew, Anika Moa, Mt Eden and Crowded House.
