New York, NY: Four-time Independent Music Award-winner and multi-instrumentalist Rachael Sage will perform at Club Passim on June 13. The show will be a dual release party for Sage's new EP, The Tide, and for co-headliner Mary Bragg's latest album, Lucky Strike. All proceeds from The Tide will be donated to the world's leading global refugee charity, ArcLife.org (American Refugee Committee).
The NYC-based singer, songwriter and producer returns from the UK after playing sold-out shows with synth music pioneer Howard Jones in addition to having been tapped for a dozen dates in March with blues powerhouse Beth Hart for her "Fire On The Floor" tour.
The evening will be a celebration of two talented female artists and Sage will unveil her new EP of protest songs, The Tide, which will be available both at the performance and digitally via iTunes. The 5-track collection adds her voice to the current worldwide protests and demonstrations while addressing topical subject matter related to the Orlando shooting, Elie Wiesel’s passing, the Syrian refugee crisis and the controversial 2016 US Presidential election.
Currently, Sage is also touring in support of her 2016 full-length album, Choreographic. The release is a musically ambitious and emotionally accessible tribute to her very first love: dance.
Sage, who studied at The School of American Ballet in her teens, has been reaching an ever-growing audience via Lifetime TV's #1 reality series Dance Moms. The show has featured a record-breaking 20 of her songs over the past four seasons - including many used by teen celebrity star Maddie Ziegler (of Sia fame).
Known for her impressive musicianship, colorful stage banter and for personally connecting with her audiences, Sage has steadily built a large and loyal grassroots fan base with a rigorous international tour schedule, prompting Performing Songwriter Magazine to name her "One of the Top 100 Independent Artists Of The Past 15 Years."
Rachael is available for in-person, phone and email interviews. Any press considerations are much appreciated. If you wish to attend the show, or request a copy of The Tide or Choreographic for review, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
