“Fresh, witty...” - Billboard

"A striking work of pop-noir, with distinctly profound lyrics." - BlackBook

"Sage’s songwriting stands out, inviting the listener into her messages of empowerment (and) love..." Innocent Words

"Wonderful songwriting and arrangements and lovely vocals." - Howard Jones

New York, NY - May 4, 2018 - Singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer Rachael Sage has premiered the exclusive stream of her latest album, Myopia, via Curve Magazine. The collection is out May 4 through MPress Records/ILS/Caroline and is her 13th full-length release. Listen and share here and on iTunes and Amazon.

Sonically, Myopia is a bold departure for Sage, with a much stronger emphasis on her guitar playing over her usual piano palette, with inventive contributions by Hoboken-based guitarist James Mastro (Patti Smith, Ian Hunter) who Sage affectionately calls “the king of wah.” Produced by Sage and her longtime engineer John Shyloski, Myopia was recorded last summer at Carriage House Studios in Stamford, CT as well as at Sage’s home studio in NYC’s East Village, and you can feel the swelter. The heavily electronic "Haunted By Objects" – on which Sage plays Moog synthesizer – describes the psyche of a hoarder whose only potential recourse may be to set everything on fire, while “This Darkness”, a bluesy lamentation about the Dakota Pipeline, reflects the urgency and courage of Native Americans’ resistance to environmental desecration; the enemy in the dark is indifference, the iciest kind of blindness.

Sage - whose eclectic list of champions includes UK chart-topping legend Howard Jones, 60’s folk icon Judy Collins, and teen dance sensation Maddie Ziegler - possesses a creative outlook that seems perfectly in sync with the beginnings of Spring: “This is a warm-weather record. These are songs about getting out there, thawing things out, and unearthing the truth. Sometimes you can’t do that in the dead of winter. But when the sun is shining, even the murkiest future appears hopeful.”

She has toured with an eclectic list of artists including Ani DiFranco, Beth Hart, Sarah McLachlan, Judy Collins and Howard Jones. Sage also continues to significantly grow her visibility via her many song placements, having recently landed her 22nd song on top reality show Dance Moms, translating into over 10 million YouTube hits.
