The world-renowned singer-songwriter Rachael Yamagata has returned to Korea. It has not even been a year since her last visit, but it seems she was dying to perform in front of the enthusiastic Korean audience.
Rachael Yamagata was born to a third generation Japanese-American father and Italian-born German mother. Their divorce affected her in surprisingly positive ways; the scenic landscape she witnessed while traveling between her parents became a source of musical inspiration.
It is well-known that she was a vocalist in a band before signing on to a major record label and releasing her first solo EP, but not many are aware that she was actually in a punk band called Bumpus, who mostly performed at clubs in Chicago.
During the interview, she shared various studies including the reason she founded an independent record label, how she was inspired to write a song thanks to a ghost, and creating an album while living together with the record producer and other staff for weeks.
Rachael Yamagata says that music touches the heart and soul and connects people together. Join us on The INNERview to meet the artist known for her rich, luscious voice and incredible musicality.
