NILES - Stage Fright Remedy, a local singer/songwriter duo, will perform at the Niles Riverfront Amphitheater at 6 p.m. this Sunday, June 12, to kick off the annual Sunday in the Park concert series.
Stage Fright Remedy is composed of siblings Rachel and Taylor Clark, from Niles. Rachel, 20, is a junior at Western Michigan University, studying psychology and Taylor,18, is entering his senior year at Niles High School.
Rachel and Taylor grew up surrounded by music and experienced their first taste of it for themselves when Taylor started playing the Djembe, an African hand drum, at the age of 12 with his father's band and Rachel ran sound on occasion. As time progressed, Taylor and Rachel never lost their love for music and they now compose and perform their own songs.
The name Stage Fright Remedy originated at the suggestion of another musician who observed that Taylor was the remedy for Rachel's stage fright.
Stage Fright Remedy blends modern acoustic rock with traditional folk music for a truly unique musical experience. Their music appeals to anyone who has dealt with the trials and tribulations of adolescence, found love and experienced heartbreak, or just found themselves searching for a feeling of compatibility. Stage Fright Remedy's relatable style appeals to both teens and adults alike.
The popularity of the duo has risen thanks to their music being featured on the independent web sites and While featured on, their MP3's have received over 100,000 hits.
Stage Fright Remedy was also one of six finalists this past February in the nationwide Prairie Home Companion 12 to 20 teen talent search.
Taylor and Rachel Clark are the children of Doug and Diana Clark of Niles.
The Sunday in the Park concert series will feature a different musical group every Sunday, from June 12 to Aug. 28, at the Riverfront Amphitheater in downtown Niles. All concerts will begin at 6 p.m. and run until approximately 8:30 p.m. Admission is free.
