A soulful vocalist and innovative multi-instrumentalist, singer/ songwriter Rachael Sage is one of the busiest touring artists in independent music, performing 100+ dates a year all over North America, the UK and Europe. She has earned herself a loyal following with her dynamic piano playing, delicate guitar work, expressive vocals, and improvisational audience interaction.

Sage’s brand new album "Myopia" is a bold departure, with a much stronger emphasis on her guitar playing over her usual piano palette. Featuring members of Bruce Springsteen, Patti Smith and Suzanne Vega's bands, "Myopia" cinematic and beautiful - a declaration of self-assurance and vision framed by musical ingenuity and emotional insight.

Dubbed "one of music's most inimitable iconoclasts” by BlackBook and praised as “fresh, witty” by Billboard Magazine, Sage has shared stages with Howard Jones, Beth Hart, A Great Big World, Judy Collins, Shawn Colvin, Dar Williams and Ani DiFranco. She has received numerous songwriting awards including The John Lennon Songwriting Contest (Grand Prize) and several Independent Music Awards. Her songs have appeared on MTV, HBO, and the "Fame" soundtrack, along with a record-breaking 22 placements on Lifetime’s top reality series,"Dance Moms" – resulting in over 10 million YouTube views.

Self-produced and mixed by Grammy winner Andy Zulla, Rachael Sage's new album "Myopia" will be released May 2018 on MPress Records. A US tour is in full swing, featuring 7 weeks with UK pop legend Howard Jones as well as headline dates throughout the rest of the year.
