Rachael Sage’s New Video “Coloring Book”
Premiered by Curve Magazine
NYC Video Release Party & Concert July 8th @ Rockwood Music Hall Stage 3
New York, NY: Curve Magazine hosts the exclusive U.S. premiere for Rachael Sage’s new video for her single “Coloring Book”. The vibrant new video features Sage’s own original paintings and highlights her passion for all things colorful, illuminating her creative process as both a musician and a visual artist from a child's playful perspective. Directed by ongoing collaborator Nick Clark and starring young Brooklyn-based actress Mikaela Oppenheimer, the video was shot in New York City with fellow NYC-based musicians Matt Nakoa and Andy Mac. Sage composed the song at 11 years old, but only recently recorded it for the deluxe reissue of her latest album, "Blue Roses". The video will also be screened immediately following Sage’s upcoming show on July 8th at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 3 in New York City.
For Sage, music has always been a colorful affair. From her early days as a ballet dancer donning elaborate costumes and stage makeup to her college years scoring music for large-scale theater productions, music and image have been inextricably linked. As a young girl, Sage met pop artist Keith Haring while performing at an AIDS benefit alongside fellow students at the School Of American Ballet, for whom he designed a special commemorative poster. "Keith Haring was my biggest influence as a visual artist from a very young age, and I still have that poster he signed for me on my bedroom wall. I used to hang out at The Pop Shop just to soak in his uplifting, universal lexicon, and his generous approach to art-making across all available media was a huge inspiration."
For the multifaceted singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, it's been an exciting and unique experience bringing her artwork to life within the format of a music video. Sage hopes this will encourage some of her younger fans to feel there are no limits to where imagination can take them. "I have a seven-year-old niece who is a wonderful artist. She creates from such a pure, unencumbered place, and loves to give away her drawings to everyone. It can be such a challenge as we get older to hold on to that direct connection between creativity and love, but for me it's pretty much everything."
Sage, who just returned from a 4-week UK tour including London Pride and a slew of shows with 'Arrow' star John Barrowman, is currently on tour in support of “Blue Rose Deluxe”. She will return to the West Coast for dates in Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, Santa Barbara and more. Tour dates listed below, or visit: http://rachaelsage.com/tour
