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.

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.

My Name is You is a duo from Scotland and the San Francisco Bay, now based in Los Angeles. Their songs have been featured on TV shows including the CW's 90210, CBS's police drama, NCIS, and The Vineyard on ABC.

In 2012, My Name is You released their self-titled EP, a rich convergence of orchestral indie-folk and heartfelt lyrics. Following the release, they toured across the United States with Joshua Radin and Tristan Prettyman.

My Name is You's debut full-length record, The Fortunate Ones, was released in May 2013. They hit the road again in support of Joshua Radin, playing sold-out shows throughout the US and Canada. That year also found My Name is You embarking on their first Europe tour, which included shows in France, Germany, Sweden and the UK.

In the autumn of 2014, My Name is You released their second self-produced album, Home Now, which was featured on iTunes in the "New & Noteworthy" category.
