Rachael Yamagata The troubadour of heartbreakRachael 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. Rachael's fall tour strips her work down to a more intimate show-expect strings. She's toured with the above as well as The Swell Season, Ray LaMontagne, Ryan Adams, Sara Bareilles, Adam Cohen, opened for David Gray solo at Madison Square Garden, been the guest of Pete Townsend's In the Attic Series, and shared the stage at Carnegie Hall with R.E.M. and Patti Smith. Rachael has played for President Obama and performed this year at the Cherry Blossom Festival with The First Lady as well as been the guest of the White House for a tweet dialogue on behalf of her fans with the White House Office of Public Engagement. Rachael sighs that most think her songs are only about love relationships and expect her to be depressed and lovelorn. At heart, she is the eternal optimist writing about connection and hope.Visit Rachael Yamagata on the webPhoto by Laura Crosta
