Rachael Yamagata, Recorded Live In Concert

A vibrant 30-year-old singer and pianist, Rachael Yamagata has evolved quite a bit since her days as a vocalist for the funk band Bumpus, for which she recorded three albums. After launching a solo career in 2001, Yamagata found her voice as a smart, powerful chronicler of love's dark underbelly. Click the link above to hear Yamagata perform live in concert from WXPN and World Café Live in Philadelphia.

Next month, Yamagata will release a two-part album called Elephants... Teeth Sinking Into Heart, a compelling combination of soft vulnerability and gritty skepticism. With edgier guitars added to the mix, the disc sounds seamless and lush, with tender confessionals that sting as they soothe.
