Singer-Songwriter Rachael Yamagata Brings Her Stripped-Down Tour to Music Box


February 5th, 2018


Singer-songwriter Rachael Yamagata originally began performing with the Chicago-based band Bumpus before leaving that group to pursue a solo career. The move marked a significant change to her approach

“The music I did in [Bumpus] was so different,” says Yamagata, who adds that she grew up listening to Joni Mitchell, Carole King and Cat Stevens, in a recent phone interview from her New York home. She performs with Sandy Bell at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 9, at Music Box Supper Club. “Musically, that was an easy transition because I was moving toward something that I thought was my own voice for so long. In terms of the weight of things on your shoulder as a solo artist, that was a different experience. I went from having a band family to having to create a new backdrop for it. It was all organic in how it came together. I didn’t intend to go solo, and I never expected to have a solo career.”
