Born artistically in the early 2000s, Rachael Yamagata - after an eponymous EP - immediately started strong with the cd "Happenstance" of 2004, produced by John Alagia (between the producers of Dave Matthews and John Mayer) for RCA Victor. Followed by years of touring and intense collaborations, with Rick Rubin, Ryan Adams (defined by him as his favorite songwriter), Bright Eyes (he participates in backing vocals in 6 songs of "Cassadaga"), Mandy Moore, Dan Wilson and Jason Mraz , up to the second cd "Elephants ... Teeth Sinking Into Heart" (distributed by Warner Bros and always produced by Alagia) in which he provocatively keeps his pop-folk style out of the easy listening and the most ferocious mainstream. The album uses a collaboration with Ray Lamontagne, with whom Rachael sings the splendid ballad "Duet".

The temptation to move away from the majors and try the independent road is very strong, just when the record companies want to make it much more "salable". From there its landing place at Megaforce, a Sony BMG artery mainly derived from metal (in their roster Metallica, Overkill and Skid Row, but also Black Crowes, Cindy Lauper and Warren Haynes) with which it publishes the third cd "Chesapeake".

His penultimate work "Tightrope Walker" (released in Asia by Sony Music) is a further artistic breakthrough, tending to experiment with pop pop art, and is always produced by Alagia together with Rachael herself. A record with unexpected electronic bursts, decidedly unusual in Yamagata's discography.

The latest publication is the "Porch Songs" EP, which will be presented on the Italian tour.

Her nearly 100,000 likes on Facebook and the millions of views on Youtube speak for her.
His songs can also be found in several American films and TV series, such as Grey's Anatomy, Nip Tuck, The Word L, Elizabethtown, Prime and The OC Rachael is adored in Europe, so much so that he can afford sold-out capacities in live rooms important, while in Asia it is even a star. Her style between Fiona Apple and PJ Harvey and her talent as a songwriter, combined with her experience and the appreciation that surrounds her, are a winning weapon for this musician with a thousand roots (American, Asian, Italian and Irish) and by thousand resources.

The new Italian show will be only acoustic. Rachael will accompany both the piano and the guitar, with some projections in the background to "decorate" the show.
