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, 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 music has appeared on MTV, HBO, the Fame soundtrack, and 20 of her songs have appeared on Lifetime’s hit 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 latest 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 released on NYC’s MPress Records in May 2016, and was co-produced by Sage and Grammy® winning producer Andy Zulla (Idina Menzel, Rod Stewart).
