A lot of different things inspire me but probably the most important source of inspiration in my life right now is music. Since I’ve been back home for Easter I’ve been reunited with my piano and boy have I missed him! I’m not a brilliant musician what so ever but the pleasure I get from tinkling round on the piano is endless.
Rachael Yamagata, a singer-songwriter from Virginia, is a new discovery for me. I was lent her album by a friend and have fallen in love with her soft voice and haunting melodies. Funnily enough I probably had heard her music before but just not realised it… you probably have too!
The lovely Rachael sings back up on several tracks on “Cassadaga” by Bright Eyes – one of my ultimate all time favorite bands. Her songs have also been featured on so many popular TV shows : The OC, One Tree Hill, Grey’s Anatomy, 30 Rock, ER and many many Blockbuster films.
As well as being a brilliantly talented musician Rachael is also incredibly beautiful.
Check out her music and let me know what you think?
