"These songs were inspired by a gosh darn mystical vision."
Woodstock, New York–based artist Rachael Yamagata is known for her soul-baring, gut-punching songs of love lost, perserverance, and triumph. She excels at venues like The Ark as she embodies a living-room philosophy of performance that invites the audience closer in. Rachael's songs invoke a 1970s storytelling vibe with flavors of Carole King, Rickie Lee Jones, and Bonnie Raitt, while modern comparisons often find her in line with past collaborators Ryan Adams and Ray LaMontaigne. Her shows are dynamic, cathartic, and often comedic, and this Songs–Stories–Solo tour finds her at her intimate best.
