THIS IS AN ALL SEATED SHOW AT ISLINGTON ASSEMBLY HALL
There has almost always been a certain amount of heartbreak in Rachael’s music. But on her new album, Tightrope Walker, she’s made room for a corresponding amount of optimism. Yamagata uses these songs’ birthplace — the front porch of her new house in Woodstock, N.Y. — as a metaphor for the songs’ outward focus. She is now writing songs not so much to soothe her own aching heart, but to help other people.
“Upbeat and orchestrally ornamented” – Rolling Stone. “Classy soul-baring pastorals from upstate New Yorker… This is an album of immersive and emotive pleasures’. – Uncut
