Performing as trio with The Sequins (Kelly Halloran & Andy Mac)
A soulful vocalist and innovative multi-instrumentalist, NYC singer/songwriter and producer Rachael Sage is one of the busiest touring artists in independent music, performing 100+ dates a year 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, A Great Big World, 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 in the last 3 seasons of Lifetime’s controversial reality series,”Dance Moms”.
Sage will be celebrating the release of her latest album CHOREOGRAPHIC, which delivers a musically ambitious and emotionally accessible tribute to her very first love: Dance. A former dancer who studied at the School of American Ballet in her teens, Sage has been thrilled to see her music widely embraced by the lyrical dance community over the past several years (videos featuring dancers performing to her music have received over 9.5 million hits on YouTube). 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, which will be released on MPress Records May 20, was co-produced by Sage and Grammy® winning producer Andy Zulla (Idina Menzel, Rod Stewart).
