2. NYC OFFICIAL CD RELEASE: LE POISSON ROUGE, NOV. 1ST!

NYC

Tickets are on sale now for Rachael's official hometown CD Release Show on Nov. 1st at Le Poisson Rouge, one of the City's finest listening rooms. This will be Rachael's debut at LPR, and we are really hoping to fill this - much larger! - venue, so we are thrilled to offer some exciting perks to those of you who might need a little extra "nudging" to get off the couch and venture down to the West Village :) Firstly, everyone who attends will receive a signed copy of "Blue Roses", with price of admission! Attendees will also receive a free poster commemorating the evening, and finally, MPress Records will be throwing a secret VIP after-party to which only those at the concert will be invited, on-site. The wonderful Gregory Douglass will open the show, and Rachael will be accompanied by The Sequins: cellist Ward Williams, violinist Kelly Halloran, and percussionist Andy Mac.

Please join us for what is sure to be a celebratory evening of beautiful music! Purchase tickets in advance.

4. "BLUE ROSES INTERNATIONAL TOUR" UNDERWAY...

Earlier this month, Rachael had a great time playing shows in the South, Midwest and along the West Coast...Thanks to everyone who came out to hear the new music! This month, the tour continues in the UK, where Rachael is currently supporting shows for Welsh operatic sensation Rhydian Roberts. She's also scheduled a handful of additional London CD Release shows, so there are plenty of chances to catch her, in the UK!

More U.S. shows will continue throughout the Fall, including stops in NM, IL, PA and more! For updates, visit www.rachaelsage.com/shows or check out the listings on the right side of this newsletter.

5. RADIO SUPPORT FOR "BLUE ROSES"!

Rachael's new album was recently serviced to Triple A (Adult Album Alternative) and College format radio stations, throughout the U.S. The great news is a bunch of stations have already begun spinning it, including BIRN (Boston, MA), KAOS (Olympia, WA), WMSE (Milwaukee, W)I, and WERU (East Orland, ME). As you can imagine however, there's a lot of competition for airplay between indie and major label artists, so we appreciate your support helping spread the word! If you'd like to hear Rachael's current single, "English Tea", here's a list of local request lines, to help.

Across the pond, Rachael's song "Happiness (Maddie's Song)" is making waves at UK Radio, where the song has been released as an official single. UK fans can download the album and acoustic versions on iTunes now!
