When I saw The Swell Season, Rachael Yamagata opened for them. Wow, I was amazed. I bought her double album and had her sign it right away. I know there are a few fans of her on here. Really nice girl, freaking passionate songs, great banter. Really hope she gets the attention she deserves. I'd even go so far as to say she is currently the most talented female singer/songwriter out there.

This isn't a very popular forum so you won't get replies that quickly.

She's not that bad. I like her voice a lot but the music isn't very interesting. Also, I feel like all her lyrics have been sung before by everyone else.

I think she has an incredible voice. I agree, her lyrics aren't really anything new, but I love her persona. She was really fun live, real nice girl. Also, I think that songs like "Don't" are pretty original. I was just drawn to the sheer amount of raw passion she brings to her songs. Even though you've heard it before, it's believable.
