Rachael Sage Contest!
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 songs have
appeared on MTV, HBO, the “Fame” soundtrack, and 16 of her
songs have appeared in the last 3 seasons of 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 brand new 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, which will be released on NYC’s MPress
Records in May 2016, was co-produced by Sage and Grammy®
winning producer Andy Zulla (Idina Menzel, Rod Stewart).
