ONE of the rising stars of the Scottish music scene is Rachel Sermanni. The 22-year-old from Carrbridge in Strathspey is attracting an increasing following for her beautiful and haunting music, some of which now features in the RBS "Here For You" television advertising campaign all about the different ways customers can bank with RBS.She also provides a perfect example of how the bank is diversifying the ways it serves its customers, as she made contact with RBS via Twitter using @RBS_Help to ask about an account that would suit her now that she is a professional musician.Rachel explains: "This idea that I'm playing music for a living is difficult to get my head around or understand."I am always interacting with friends and people who like my music on Twitter. I tweeted RBS and asked them what they would recommend for an account that would be good for a musician."That tweet led directly to Rachel's involvement in the new campaign, with the song Everything is Ok that she says is "based on people feeling secure."She is now a firm fan of mobile banking with RBS. "There's definite appeal behind being able to manage anything through your mobile because it's the thing at hand."To be able to transfer money - something that could be quite complex - is much simpler if you can do it all through your mobile phone." Chris Wilson , RBS Managing Director of Branch and Private Banking in Scotland comments: "We're delighted that Rachel got in touch with us via Twitter to ask for help with her bank account, which in turn has resulted in her composing a song for our latest 'Here For You' television advert."She's a wonderful example of Scotland's incredible musical talent. We're very happy to be able to help her with her banking needs and pleased that we can introduce her to many of our other customers in this way."
