Rachel Platten

Beautiful, but not brazen. Passionate, but never preachy. Populist, but definitely not prosaic. New York singer-songwriter, pianist, and beatboxer Rachel Platten is by no means your average headliner-in-the-making. Her Rock Ridge Music debut, Be Here, is a bewitching collection of 10 wise-beyond-their-years piano-driven pop songs that echo elements of Alanis Morissette, Carole King, Tori Amos, and Regina Spektor, while retaining a singular sense of self that is rarely found in such a young performer.

Also performing: Ian Axel
