Sould singer Raquel Rodriguez lives in Los Angeles, but has many Central Valley ties. Her mother and her entire family (13 kids total) grew up in Fresno and Visalia and she still has aunts, uncles and various cousins in the area. When asked to describe her music, Rodriguez replied, Ē A lot of the music I write about is pretty relatable in the sense that most people go through a lot of the same things that I go through. When I write, I write to clear my head and get things out, so itís literally music that helps my soul. I think when people hear the record or see us play live, that idea comes across pretty clearly. Even if you donít know what the song is about, the music itself just feels good for the soul. We definitely have influences from old school (and new) soul artists; Etta James, Marvin Gaye, Sly & The Family Stone, Stevie Wonder, Amy Winehouse, Allen Stone, and Quadron."
As for Visalia openers Not Perfect Humans, it is rumored that this will be their last show.
