MPress Artist & Tour News:
In the wake of the tragic events in Orlando this past June, independent record label MPress Records and flagship artist Rachael Sage wanted to do something to help the families of the victims and the LGBT Community. MPress organized a fundraiser and released an EP called "Songs For Orlando" to benefit The GLBT Community Center of Central Florida. Rachael Sage + Friends – A Benefit For Orlando was at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 3 on August 2nd, you can watch a stream of the show here.
Sage, who is an active member of the LGBT community, was horrified by the attack on the Pulse Nightclub and immediately wanted to show solidarity. “Like so many of my peers, I was overwhelmed with sadness when the news hit and of course knew that we had to do something.” Within days, Sage had penned a poignant song “Disarm Distrust”, which is available on Noisetrade for a pay-what-you-want donation.
Listen to "Disarm Distrust" here.
Award-winning filmmaker Nick Clark captured Rachael's recent show at New York's best listening room Rockwood Music Hall. Five videos from the show have been featured via Paste Magazine.
Celebrating the release of her new album "Choreographic", Rachael and her band the Sequins (featuring violinist Kelly Halloran, drummer Andy Mac, cellist Ward Williams and special guest violinist Lyris Hung) performed a selection of tracks from the new album. The set-list included "Try Try Try", "French Doors", "I've Been Waiting", "It Would Be Enough" and a medley of fan-favorites "Bravedancing" and "Hit Song" from the albums "Public Record" and "The Blistering Sun", respectively.
