Rachael Yamagata: Notorious ‘troubadour of heartbreak’ singer songwriter original long haired piano ballad girl? Please.
When Philip Petit was asked why he walks the tightrope he responded, ‘Why – there is no why’ and this really messed me up. Here I was having devoted an entire theme of the tightrope walker to my new record and it made me ask myself my own why – why keep going, why stay in an industry that I’ve not yet conquered, why write when you have to give up so much to do so – all of it. Perseverance. Relentlessness. Owning your own power. These are the themes of my new record. If you’re thinking of quitting – anything – this is your record.
