RACHAEL YAMAGATA SPRING TOUR STARTS TODAY


Who:
RACHAEL YAMAGATA
What: Embarking on March and early April Tour
When: Now
Why: "There are singer-songwriters, and then there's Rachael Yamagata. The Native Virginian has always had a more sophisticated delivery and contemplative presence than most pop wannabes, and her latest album, Chesapeake, reveals the full breadth of her musical expressions." - LA Weekly

"Finally the heir to Bonnie Raitt. Yamagata on this record has a similar way of connecting singer-songwriter-ly narratives to a bluesy soulful sound. Her voice just has a wonderful thickness and I just really enjoy this record. Just a pleasure. She has guts and a sexiness to her." -
Ann Powers, NPR Music
