Today, Rachael & Vilray, the duo of singer/songwriter Rachael Price (Lake Street Dive) and guitarist/singer/songwriter Vilray, debuts the official music video for their track “Any Little Time.” The song appears on their new album, I Love a Love Song!, which is out now on Nonesuch Records. Watch/share the video for “Any Little Time” HERE.
Last month, the duo returned to “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” to perform their song “Is a Good Man Real?” backed by The Late Show Band. In addition, Rachael & Vilray played “Is A Good Man Real?,” “Just Me This Year” and “Just Two” on “CBS Saturday Morning” while also appearing on Jools Holland’s BBC Two New Year’s Eve special “Jools’ Annual Hootenanny.”
Rachael & Vilray are also slated to play a sold-out headline set at New York’s Music Hall of Williamsburg on February 24. The show follows their special run of dates at the famed Café Carlyle this past November.
Recorded at United Recording in Los Angeles, I Love a Love Song! was produced, engineered and mixed by Dan Knobler (Allison Russell) and features arrangements from Jacob Zimmerman. All songs were written by Vilray except for the 1930’s classic “Goodnight My Love,” which was written by Mack Gordon and Harry Revel.
Rachael Price and Vilray began performing together in 2015, although they first met in 2003 as students at the New England Conservatory of Music. Vilray formed a couple of bands with Price’s soon-to-be bandmates in Lake Street Dive. Price recalls he had a nimble mind and quick wit when it came to lyrics. It was more than a decade later that Price and Vilray began to collaborate. She had been on the road much of each year with Lake Street Dive and he had been developing his own solo act, centered around just voice and guitar.
In 2019, Rachael & Vilray released their self-titled debut album via Nonesuch Records to critical praise; NPR says, “She can sing anything; he can play anything…Tin Pan Alley meets the Lower East Side in a smoky bar, in songs with a twist of humor.” The duo performed two songs from their debut—“At Your Mother’s House” and “Do Friends Fall in Love”—on the “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”
