Rachael Sage is a soulful vocalist and innovative multi-instrumentalist who has earned a loyal following with her dynamic piano playing, delicate guitar work, expressive vocals and improvisational audience interaction. Joy!, Rachael’s first holiday EP, is a playful folk-pop collection featuring a cover of the classic “Joy To The World” – an uptempo re-vamp with a tinge of Americana twang. Other tracks include Sage’s original Hanukkah song “Tchatchkes & Latkes”, and her first Yiddish recording, “Umru Meine”. Sage has shared stages with Judy Collins, Shawn Colvin, Dar Williams, Beth Hart, Colin Hay, and Ani DiFranco. She’s received numerous songwriting awards including The John Lennon Songwriting Contest (Grand Prize) and several Independent Music Awards. A record-breaking 22 placements on Lifetime’s TV series Dance Moms have resulted in 10 million+ YouTube views. Look for Rachael’s forthcoming album Myopia, out this Spring on MPress Records/ILS/Caroline.

Hurricane Benefit & Release Party / Rachael Sage 12/13
Award-winning singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Rachael Sage will perform at Rockwood Music Hall on December 13 with her band, The Sequins. The show will also be a release party for her new holiday EP, Joy!, as well as a charity benefit for MusiCares Hurricane Relief Fund.
Sage will perform a special program of material celebrating the release of her new EP along with additional holiday-themed songs from her 12 album back-catalog. 100% of net proceeds from the release show will benefit the MusiCares Hurricane Relief Fund, which supports members of the music community affected by the devastation of the recent hurricanes.
Rachael Sage never ceases to surprise. Whether it's via her innovative, often handmade stage costumes or unlikely collaborations with artists such as Howard Jones and Judy Collins, the colorful artist isn't afraid to give things her own spin. Known for her impressive musicianship and witty stage banter, Sage has steadily built a large and loyal grassroots fan base with a rigorous international tour schedule, prompting Blurt Magazine to dub her "The Carole King of her generation"
Joy! is Sage's very first holiday collection and was released on November 10, 2017. The self-produced, 5-track EP was recorded and mixed by Grammy® nominee John Shyloski (Twiddle) and Grammy@ winner Andy Zulla (Idina Menzel) and boasts a variety of guest musicians along with Sage's longtime band The Sequins: cellist Ward Williams (Sara Bareilles), violinist Kelly Halloran (Tom Morello), and drummer Andy Mac (Deni Bonet). The EP features a cover of the timeless holiday classic "Joy To The World", a Yiddish ballad, and two original Hanukkah songs including fan favorite "Hanukkah In The Village". The physical packaging also includes a recipe for Romanian latkes, contributed by a friend's bubbe, a.k.a. grandmother.
