    Rachael Yamagata at Hotel Cafe March 18th, 2008 and Video with Bumpus - "Rock Steady" (2000)

    A frequest musical guest on The Time Machine, singer-songwriter Rachael Yamagata, chimes in with her latest concert gig at The Hotel Cafe this March 18th:

    Hello lalaians (peeps who live in L.A.). Rachael here. Rachael who? I know I know. I feel the same way...

    I could change my name, couldn't I? start fresh? Do the one name thing - Yamagata... or just Yama since there is some band out there already named Yamagata? (bastards... I mean, they weren't birthed by my father...I mean, I hope not)...or maybe just "GATA"... doesn't that mean cat in spanish? That would work, with my whole meow thing and all. Course, then folks would think I was Spanish, but I look Native American and of course am Japanese...German...Italian. might confuse. Or might be good for reaching across borders...

    Anyway, I'm supposed to be writing a bulletin for some shows coming up in L.A. - that was the original point to all of this. So, I'm playing two shows at our favorite haunt - Hotel Cafe on Tuesday, March 18th. Both on the same night - the early show and then the late show. One will come before the other. Pleeeaasssee join us as we try to remember what it feels like to play in front of live humans. We'll play old songs, other old songs I'm trying to pass off as new songs, and new songs of course. We can compare scars of the past two(has it been two ???)years, drink wine, speculate on LOST, rant about how good Heidi and Britney, Nicole and Christina all look after having multiple children and I'm still in pudge stage! And for the men, we'll give band members a mic and they can talk sports or something in between "God, she's depressing" numbers of mine...

    Love you all. Miss you wanna kiss you can't wait to see you.

    Singer-songwriter Rachael Yamagata has been our most played artist on the radio since her EP release back in 2003. Some of her earlier material were on the air before 2003 and including her stint with Bumpus has made her one of our core artists who keeps delievering one wonderful recorded performance after another. Her approach to songs from other artists like Joni Mitchell , George Harrison and Judy Sill have kept her five year stronghold in place on our radio dial. Add in her work with other artists as varied as; Ryan Adams & The Cardinals, Toots & The Maytalls, Ben Lee, Rhett Miller, Bill Deasey, Ray LaMontagne, Chris Holmes, Jason Mraz, Bright Eyes and Mandy appears that she will continue to be on our playlists for years to come.

    We present to you a live performance from the summer of 2000 when she was still a band member of Bumpus performing "Rock Steady" at Rock Around the Block in Chicago.

    This street festival took place on Lincoln Avenue in Chicago. A big mahalo goes out to StarEvents for letting us pass this onto you. The event is produced and managed by StarEvents - Chicago's Favorite Event Company. StarEvents, founded in 1996, produces over a dozen of the best festivals in the country. Rock Around the Block features three stages of awesome talent and takes place every July. To find out more info check out:

    Their mission is to build communities for a better tomorrow. Remember - Enjoy life now!

    Her debut release "Happenstance" produced by John Alagia kept pulling in our listeners and locking her status as "most played artist" right up until the end of 2007. Perfect timing for us because her sophomore release (also produced by John Alagia) is scheduled to come out later this year. We have no doubt that Rachael will continue her streak based on the upcoming songs that we've heard. Until a song like "Faster" dominates our charts next year, we offer this recent radio aircheck of another Maui afternoon where this gifted singer-songwriter dropped in for an interview on The Time Machine with host Michael McCartney. Rachael shared her musical inspirations and insights for our radio audience.

    i've never had the chance to see rachael's earlier work and this was a treat. rachael can dance!!
    hey thanks for posting this island people...much appreciated.
    so there's a band called yamagata?
    huh ?? not one is named yamagata either/neither i see.
    get yoko ono on it she already has this kind of thing under her belt. lennon the band's lead singer is named lennon though. what to do?
    i say there is only one yamagata and we'll stick with her so it doesn't make a diff.
    all agreed?
    then throw your glass into the fireplace!
    sanother thing...
    what's with the pudge comment?
    rachael yamagata! stop it!
    you are nothing short of amazingly beautiful and we'll have none of that..
    you can stop that nonsense right now.
    good god N M E just had you nominated for sexiest female artist.
    these kind of pronouncements don't just get made for fun you know.
    so get with the program girl.
    we love you and your music.
    and another thing men thinking r.y's music is depressing? (insert yosemite sam growl here) shame on you is all i can say. heehee.
    you'd be surprised how many of us get what you create. truth.

    and last...
    good to see she's on tour again.
    just wish she'd head on up to canada.
    she'd be such a hit and for that reason probably wouldn't be allowed to leave the country.
    "i'm sorry ma'am but your visa has been revoked we love you too much and are keeping you here indefinitely"
    thanks to the time machine!
