Valentine's Day from Rachael Yamagata
Singer-songwriter Rachael Yamagata, frequent musical guest on The Time Machine, chimes in on another Valentine's Day before she hits the stage this evening at the Hard Rock Cafe in Jakarta for a Valentine's concert performance.
Valentine's day, to me, is sort of like New Year's Eve...it never turns out to be what my fantasizing little self of seventeen expects. However, I do find myself loving friendships, travel, music, creativity and hey, if there can be a little romance mixed in all the better. If you've got a cutie, go out and celebrate! And if you don't... stay light and know that it's all on it's way... Somehow.. Someday.. (If i can do it, you can too!)

Rachael's music has had a home on our playlists and in our hearts since her debut release. While waiting for her third album release this year, be sure to pick up a copy of her first album, "Happenstance" and her sophomore double album release, "Elephants...Teeth Sinking Into Heart". Rachael currently topped our airplay chart for 2010 with her song with Semisonic's Dan Wilson, "You Take My Troubles Away" and closed out the year with her yuletide song, "Baby Come Find Me At Christmas". You can get a sampling of what she's been up to lately at her website www.rachaelyamagata.com
