Shalom friends, & Happy Hanukkah & Holidays-at-large!
It's been a while since the last Rachael Sage Page, & we're thrilled to bring you some exciting news from your favorite sequined songstress, as well as some exciting updates about her label, MPress Records. We also have some beautifully designed, limited edition "Delancey Street"-themed merch, just in time for the holidays. Fine details below, & hope to see y'all at a show!
xoxo & latkes,

Check out Rachael Sage's fabulous brand new merchandise, just in time for the holidays! If you order now, we'll ship your limited-edition merch to you or your loved-ones by the 25th. Several different bundles are available, including packages combining swanky new merch with a copy of her latest album, "Delancey Street", woohoo!
We're so excited to announce that one of Rachael's very favorite artists, Melissa Ferrick, is now a part of the MPress Records family. Ferrick, who's been tearing up the indie-folk scene for over a decade with her fiercely honest, passionate songs, will be recording tracks for her MPress debut in early 2011. Stay tuned to the MPress website for updates, & read more about Melissa in our official signing announcement, or at her web site!
Dave Eggar's newest release "Kingston Morning" – produced by Dave Eggar and Chuck Palmer – was nominated for a Grammy® for Best Instrumental Arrangement (category 85, if you're a voting member). The nomination is for a unique classical arrangement of "Itsbynne Reel", a signature song by the late great saxophonist, Michael Brecker.
Dave and Chuck collaborated with legendary jazz arranger Gil Goldstein on this arrangement. If you're a member of NARAS, please consider voting for Dave, who also appears on Rachael's latest album, "Delancey Street" and is a longtime member of her band The Sequins!
Earlier this month, LifeBeat presented Rachael & country star/LGBT activist and writer Chely Wright in concert at Borders Kips Bay in NYC. A lively, complimentary double bill, the afternoon was well-attended and audience members also had the chance to meet the artists and have them sign CDs, in the process of supporting AIDS Awareness and LifeBeat. View photos from the in-store HERE!
This month Rachael will return to the West Coast in support of her current release. She'll be performing in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Santa Barbara, Seattle, Olympia & Portland. Also, in December she'll perform in Israel for the first time! Details below, & stay tuned to Rachael's web site for updates.
