About

A soulful vocalist and innovative multi-instrumentalist, singer/songwriter and producer Rachael Sage is one of the busiest touring artists in independent music, performing 100+ dates a year both solo and with her band The Sequins throughout the US, UK, & Europe. She has earned a loyal following for her dynamic piano playing, delicate guitar work, soulful vocals, and improvisational audience interaction.

Sage has shared stages with Sarah McLachlan, Beth Hart, Judy Collins, Shawn Colvin, Marc Cohn, Jamie Cullum, The Animals and Ani DiFranco. She has performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and received numerous songwriting awards including The John Lennon Songwriting Contest (Grand Prize) and several Independent Music Awards. Her songs have appeared on MTV, HBO, the Fame soundtrack, and had over 20 placements on Lifetime’s controversial reality series, Dance Moms.

Sage herself is a former dancer who studied at the School of American Ballet in her teens, and she has been thrilled to see her music widely embraced by the lyrical dance community over the past several years (videos featuring young girls dancing to her music have received over 9 million hits on YouTube). Her 2016 album Choreographic delivers a musically ambitious and emotionally accessible tribute to dance, her very first love.  She “envisioned each song as a fully-choreographed multi-media experience”; the result is an inspired set of piano-based chamber-pop merging orchestral elements with her signature blend of folk, pop and rock. The album was co-produced by Sage and Grammy-winning producer Andy Zulla (Idina Menzel, Rod Stewart).

"Blue Roses" CD Release Show @ Le Poisson Rouge

Prolific songstress Rachael Sage debuts at Le Poisson Rouge on Saturday, November 1st for the hometown celebration of her new MPress Records full-length release, “Blue Roses”. Produced by Sage and Grammy® Nominee John Shyloski (Johnny Winter, Stephen Kellogg), the album features 13 brand new chamber-pop gems, and showcases the NYC-based multi-instrumentalist’s confident, sophisticated songwriting. Featuring members of Daft Punk, Patti Smith and Bruce Springsteen’s bands, the recording includes a duet with folk icon Judy Collins and contains tracks featured in the current season of Lifetime’s #1 Reality Series, “Dance Moms”.
 
“Blue Roses” is a collection of songs about the impact any single person can have upon the destiny of another. Sage has spent most of the last two years trying to channel evidence of compassion into her creative output. “These are incredibly confusing, chaotic times we’re living in, and the older I get, the more vital it seems to me to document unabashed, wholehearted empathy wherever and however I can as an artist.”
 
Praised by The Wall Street Journal, Rollingstone.com and The New York Times, Sage will bring her unique brand of infectious melodies and poetic lyrics to the stage via her innovative keyboard playing and delicate guitar work. She’ll be supported by stellar local band-mates: cellist Ward Williams (Brandi Carlile), violinist Kelly Halloran (G. Love), and drummer Andy Mac (Deni Bonet)…plus special surprise guests! For more information, Rachael’s website or read the official press release for “Blue Roses”.
