Rachael Sage's "New Destination" EP Earns Critical Acclaim

Rachael Sage's EP New Destination was released this spring, and has been getting great press. Highlights include a glowing review in which Blurt Magazine writer Lee Zimmerman calls it "pure pop perfection...", an in-depth interview with Underneath This blog and a feature in GO NYC's 100 Women We Love.

Here's what the press are saying:

  • "New Destination is an ideal sampler of Sage’s song craft, and if justice does prevail, it ought to elevate her to that much-deserved pop plateau." - Blurt Magazine
  • "Sage combines brilliant, compact and heartfelt songwriting, professional polish and an elemental feel...This is some of her finest work to date" - Wildy's World
  • "She gets better and better, and continues to weave a tapestry of emotional perspectives with her innovative style and percussive keyboard based alt-pop music." - Musical Discoveries
  • "Sage has a refined sound that hints at a restrained Kate Bush and draws upon her talents as a pianist to create stories through her music that speak to the listener." - Curve Magazine

  • Sage Releases "Happiness (Maddie's Song)" Single

    You may have heard that 8 of Rachael's songs have been featured in the current season of Lifetime TV's "Dance Moms". We can now confirm at least 2 more will air when season 4 returns on July 29th.

    "Happiness (Maddie's Song)," from Rachael's forthcoming album "Blue Roses" (Fall 2014), will air in late August and is featured during the 1st prize winning routine performed by dancer Maddie Ziegler; Ziegler was recently cast in Sia's music video for "Chandelier," which just celebrated the No. 1 spot in Billboard's Top 200.

    In honor of the dance, Rachael's label MPress Records has released the track as a single available now.

    "Blue Roses" Coming Out Fall 2014

    All the final touches have been made to Rachael Sage's forthcoming 11th studio album, "Blue Roses". The striking cover art showcases images shot by renowned photographer Shervin Lainez and collaborative packaging design by Chris Kornmann and Rachael herself.

    Musically, "Blue Roses" features 13 chamber-pop gems supported by an impressive lineup of musical guests. Early rumblings from radio personalities and tastemakers indicate this work as being some of Rachael's absolute best, and we couldn't agree more.

    Esteemed publicity firm Beautiful Day Media, helmed by The Beatles' long-time publicist Elizabeth Freund, has signed on to represent and service this record. Radio promotion companies M:M Music and Jordan Zucker's InFirst Promotions will lead the charge at triple A radio, going for adds on September 8th.
