[SOULFUL FOLK] Rachael Yamagata has made herself one of the more compelling, indispensable artists of the indie realm in recent years, with her husky, honey-smoked vocals guiding tracks like riverboats down slow-moving rivers. Yamagata is at once fragile and empowered as she reveals all that relationships have done to her and how she has grown from them, and her fearlessness is what makes her songs resonate so deeply with fans. Her last release, the Heavyweight EP, demonstrated she can throw curveballs as well by dramatically stripping down her sound. Such minimalism in the heart of such weighty content is quite the balancing act, and Yamagata is always up for the challenge.
