Michelle Zauner of Japanese Breakfast writes lyrics that trace delicate outlines of emotions, as if drawing on a foggy window on an introspective, snowy day. Her writerly curiosity as a musician propelled her into a second career as an author.
Japanese Breakfast's 'Jubilee' of Indie Rock Takes Over the Regency Ballroom
Earlier this year, her memoir about her mother’s death and her Korean heritage, Crying in H Mart, became a New York Times best seller. And a few months later, in June, she released her critically acclaimed album Jubilee, an indie rock record with celebratory horns, hopeful strings, stomping dance floor catharses and bittersweet reflections on the fleeting nature of happiness. Harpist, violinist and multi-instrumentalist Luna Li joins her for two nights in San Francisco on Sept. 30 and Oct. 1 at the Regency Ballroom.
