Public Record 10th Anniversary

August 2013 marks the 10th anniverary of Rachael Sage's top selling album Public Record, co-produced by Sage and Grammy winning engineer Andy Zulla, and showcases her warm, expressive voice along with an increasingly ambitious sense of arrangement.

Public Record is home to some of her most popular tracks including "Bravedancing" and "Frost", which we have discovered to be a top-pick among young, modern ballet & lyrical dancers. In fact, we have compiled a playlist on YouTube showcasing this phenomenon.

In celebration of the album's anniversary and the overwhelming support of the dancing community, Rachael will be offering a free streaming player to dancers and studios as well as a new remixed track by Barb Morrison. More details to follow.


August Festival Slots at Falcon Ridge & Folks Fest

Early in August, Rachael will return to Falcon Ridge Folk Festival in Hillsdale, NY to compete in the Emerging Artist Showcase. As one of 24 Finalists, she will perform two songs, rain or shine, and hopefully earn enough audience-votes to return in 2014 as one of the festival's "Most Wanted", on the main stage. Fellow New Yorker Andy Mac will be accompanying her, in their debut as a musical duo! Falcon Ridge main stage performers this year include Dar Williams, Mary Gauthier and Susan Werner.

Later in the month, Sage will perform solo at the prestigious Rocky Mountain Folks Festival in Lyons, Colorado. In a setting similar to the Falcon Ridge, she'll be performing a two-song set alongside a group of only 10 showcase finalists from all over the country, for a chance to win prizes...including a Main Stage set and a Taylor guitar! Rocky Mountain headliners this year include Loreena McKennitt and John Prine.
