Description
-------------------------
Rachael Yamagata is not your ordinary singer/songwriter. Yes, she has released numerous albums; had record label deals; toured the world multiple times with sell-out concerts; built a loyal and ever-growing fan base; earned her place as a media ‘darling'; made appearances on Jay Leno, Conan O'Brian, Carson Daly, 30 Rock, One Life to Live and The O.C.; been an NPR profiled artist; made a cameo appearance as herself in Sony Pictures To Write Love on Her Arms; had song placements in hit TV shows including NCIS: New Orleans, Vampire Diaries, Grey's Anatomy, Alias, How I Met Your Mother, and in and Hollywood movies including Hope Springs, Prime, Monster-in-Law, and Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants; been nominated Best Female Vocal by the Chicago Music Awards (2012); opened for artists including Patti Smith, David Gray, and Pete Townsend; and performed at venues including Madison Square Garden, Radio City Music Hall, Carnegie Hall, SXSW, Austin City Limits, Glastonbury, and Bonnaroo.

Rachael breaks the mold of the singer/songwriter stereotype, and the DIY indie-artist model as, for the past four years she has be working without management representation.

CD releases to date include Heavyweight EP (2012), Noisetrade Mixtape (2012), Chesapeake (2011), Elephants (2008), Loose Ends EP (2007), Live at the Loft (2005), Happenstance (2004), and Rachael Yamagata: EP (2001).
Her latest album, currently titled ‘Tightrope Walker,' is slated for a fall 2015 release. It showcases her calling card ability to articulate humanity's struggles within relationships and the freedom that comes from celebrating that which we face alone and head on. The production is riskier and cinematic – think Tom Waits meets Roberta Flack, Nick Cave hanging with Rufus Wainwright. Rachael confounds a labeled genre and instead embraces the production that serves the story. The paradox of her art mirrors that of her career and proves that we are never simplistic, but always full of surprises.
