“Rachael Yamagata has been called ‘the troubadour of heartbreak’ by the press and fans are drawn to her ability to ‘turn emotion into song’. She’s got the old soul singer songwriter essence that calls upon Todd Rundgren, Carole King, Joni Mitchell, The Carpenters and Elton John and sonically gravitates towards the darker stylings of Nick Cave, Tom Waits, P.J. Harvey and Danny Elfman. She hits the road again this fall stripping it down to a more intimate show – expect strings, seated venues and wine – all in support of her 2012 independent release ‘Chesapeake’ and a new as yet untitled EP of ‘darker fair – some lush with strings and others stark with vulnerability’.”
Courtesy of my friends at Opus One Productions, I have a pair of tickets for this show.
