The Canadian-born songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Rachel Zeffira trained as an opera singer -- where a premium is put on projection. But for her solo debut, The Deserters, she's crafted a hushed orchestral pop sound that revolves around her dreamy, haunted whisper of a voice. Hear her performance in the studio, including the songs "Silver City Days," and "Waiting for Sylvia." Plus, a stream, below, of Zeffira and her ensemble's lovely cover of the Beatles' "Because."
