Rachael SageRachael Sage's "Delancey Street" Available In Stores Now!

NEW YORK, NY - Singer/songwriter/producer Rachael Sage weaves an introspective tapestry of a gypsy seeking a home on ‘Delancey Street’. The MPress Records release, available in stores now (and available digitally on iTunes,) is a musical exploration of identity...of cultural heritage, family history, and how where we come from shapes the paths we ultimately take in life.

Drawing inspiration from her immigrant Jewish heritage as a creative starting point, Sage’s atmospheric collection evokes a weathered scrapbook, as if each track captured a moment in time and articulated the experiences through song. The CD reflects Sage’s deeper sense of perspective, earned after a decade on the road, living without a true ‘home’. This past year, she made a conscious decision to reestablish her roots, solidify her relationships, and bring balance to her untethered life. The result is ‘Delancey Street’.

Featuring an art-rock sound reminiscent of the idiosyncratic work of Kate Bush, the CD, Sage’s ninth, features 12 songs. Included are eleven original compositions plus an inspired cover of the Hall & Oates classic, ‘Rich Girl,’ which iTunes revered as "bringing a fresh intimacy" to a familiar tune.

On 'Delancey Street' (Mpress Records), Ms. Sage's ninth album, she revisits memories of the neighborhood to explore the need for the comfort and sense of identity that community can provide.
