- Plymouth, MA
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).

Rachael Sage and Lucy Kaplansky at The Spire Center
Sage recently released a new EP of protest songs, The Tide, which will be available both at the performance and digitally via iTunes. The 5-track collection adds her voice and music to the current worldwide protests and public demonstrations, seeking justice for all in a turbulent sociopolitical landscape. All net proceeds will be donated to ArcLife.org (American Refugee Committee), one of the world's leading international refugee assistance organizations.
The NYC-based singer, songwriter and producer returns to the US after a successful UK and European tour in support of her latest full-length album, Choreographic, a musically ambitious and emotionally accessible tribute to her very first love: dance.
Sage, who studied at The School of American Ballet in her teens, has been reaching an ever-widening audience via Lifetime TV's #1 reality series Dance Moms, which has featured 20 of her songs over the past four seasons - including many used by the show's breakout star Maddie Ziegler. Ziegler also shot to fame when she toured with and danced in several powerful music videos by pop artist Sia.
Known for her impressive musicianship, colorful stage banter and for personally connecting with her audiences, Sage has steadily built a loyal grassroots fan base with a rigorous international tour schedule, prompting Performing Songwriter Magazine to name her "One of the Top 100 Independent Artists Of The Past 15 Years."
During February and March, Sage is joining blues rocker Beth Hart's tour for East Coast dates and shortly afterwards heading to the UK for a Spring 2017 tour supporting synth-pop pioneer Howard Jones.
Rachael is available for in-person, phone or email interviews. Any press considerations are much appreciated. If you wish to attend the show for review, or request a copy of Choreographic, please email: email@example.com
