Lake Street Dive and Rachael & Vilray—who share a singer in Rachael Price—have both announced new 2022 tour dates today. Lake Street Dive has added three shows in Georgia and South Carolina in March and three in upstate New York in May, including a concert with the Avett Brothers at Brewery Ommegang in Cooperstown on May 28. Rachael & Vilray, who close out their residency at Rockwood Music Hall in New York City next Monday and play at the Troubadour in Los Angeles on January 16, have added six new shows back on the East Coast in January, in Connecticut, Pennsylvania, DC, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts.

Lake Street Dive's latest album, Obviously, was produced by Mike Elizondo, who has just been nominated for the Grammy Award for Producer of the Year, Non-Classical, in part for his work on the album. "Mike encouraged us to make bolder arrangement choices, take those chances and try those things," says bassist Bridget Kearney. "The record really is a success in what we set out to do: continue to challenge ourselves, continue to grow, and do things we’ve never done before." "You need to make this band part of your life," exclaims the AP. "Lake Street Dive have never sounded better, full and clear with every instrument given a chance to shine in every song."
Rachael & Vilray's self-titled debut album, released on Nonesuch in 2019, features ten original songs by composer, singer, and guitarist Vilray, plus two covers from the era that inspired him: Cuban composer Pedro Junco Jr.'s 1943 "Nosotros" and Drake/Atler's "I Love the Way You're Breaking My Heart," first popularized by Peggy Lee. "The voices of acoustic duo Rachael & Vilray are magical enough on their own," says Chronogram, "but when they blend in song the results are utterly sublime."
