Rachael Sage Releases 20th Anniversary Edition Of Feminist Anthem

Premieres With BUST Magazine

Kicking off her national headlining tour, singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer Rachael Sage releases "Sistersong 2018" and premieres the track with BUST Magazine.

The song is a special 20th Anniversary version of her beloved 1998 feminist anthem and appears on her forthcoming album, Myopia, out May 4. The single will also be released on limited-edition, 7" red vinyl available via Sage's Pledge Music campaign. All proceeds from "Sistersong 2018" will benefit national charity Girls Inc. Listen and share “Sistersong 2018” and pre-order the vinyl single and/or album via Pledge Music.  

Featuring buzzed-about guest artists Nalani & Sarina, Gabrielle Louise and Irish chanteuse Fiona Harte, the newly re-imagined "Sistersong 2018" mirrors the #MeToo and Women's March movements and is an empowering ode to sisterhood. The song was originally recorded in 1998 as a tribute to fellow artist and businesswoman Ani DiFranco, whose independent spirit and commitment to running her own pioneering indie record label Righteous Babe was among the catalysts for Sage to found her own label, MPress Records.

Stream "Sistersong 2018" on Spotify, listen on iTunes and get the collectible 7" vinyl on Pledge.


Seth Glier Wins THREE Independent Music Awards

Marks Glier's Fifth Total IMA Award

GRAMMY®-nominated singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer Seth Glier took home three Independent Music Awards on Saturday, March 31 at the 16th annual awards ceremony held at Lincoln Center. The triple win not only scored the most judge's votes of the evening - tied only by actor/musician Reeve Carney (Spider Man: Turn Off The Dark, Penny Dreadful) - but it marked Glier's fifth total award from the organization.

His critically acclaimed 2017 album Birds won in the following categories :

Best Album / Folk-Singer, Songwriter / Birds
Best Song / Folk-Singer, Songwriter / "Like I Do"
Best Producer / Pop Album / Steve Lunt and Seth Glier (Birds)

Glier states, "Thanks to the IMAs not only for the three awards but for continuing to champion and shine a spotlight on independent artists around the world. The process of making Birds was intimate and a bit unconventional. Making it wasn’t (as much) about commerce as it was about healing my heart after losing my brother and grasp upon the world. It feels so good to see that 'wandering' recognized. Special thanks to producer Steve Lunt for being my companion and cohort. These ones are for you, Jamie".

The loss of Glier's severely autistic brother Jamie in 2015 was the partial inspiration behind Birds. Check out the album on Spotify and view the official Independent Music Awards press release and full list of winners.

Rachael Sage Announces New Album "Myopia" Out May 4

First Album Track “Olivia” Premieres Via BlackBook

Singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer Rachael Sage has announced the release of her forthcoming album, Myopia, out May 4 via MPress Records/ILS/Caroline. In anticipation, Sage has released the first single “Olivia” today via BlackBook.

The first single off of Myopia, "Olivia" premiered with BlackBook, who called it “a striking work of pop-noir with distinctly profound lyrics”. See the video here and read all about it on BlackBook.

Sonically, Myopia is a bold departure for Sage, with a much stronger emphasis on her guitar playing over her usual piano palette. Having toured last year with Beth Hart, inevitably some of Hart’s grit and soul rubbed off. The album is available for pre-order on Pledge Music, where special goodies include, socks, pins, vinyl, and even artsy eyeglasses hand-decorated by Rachael.

Reserve your copy of Myopia now at Pledge and catch Rachael on tour with Howard Jones (click for full tour schedule). Read more via the official press release.

Daytrotter also live-streamed the set via Facebook Live along with their sister company, Paste Magazine, stating that while Glier is "filled to the brim with political angst" he can also "recall the soft and reassuring voice of Sufjan Stevens".
