Rachael Sage Drops New Album "Myopia", Streaming Now at Curve Magazine
"A striking work of pop-noir, with distinctly profound lyrics." - BlackBook
Curve Magazine exclusively debuted Rachael Sage's new album Myopia, streaming now! The collection hit the streets tpday and marks Sage's 13th full-length release to date.
Sage recently completed a national tour with synth legend Howard Jones and also
recorded her own take on his Top Ten hit "No One Is To Blame", which
appears on "Myopia". Listen here!
Three other singles have been released from the album so far:"Olivia", "Sympathy Seed" and Sage's 20th Anniversary version of her feminist anthem, "Sistersong 2018".
Sage states about Myopia, “The idea of things coming in and out of focus depending
upon which lens you might be looking through seemed especially provocative
right now. As someone who is legally blind without glasses, and who’s also used
to squinting to see something more clearly, I started to think about
nearsightedness on a much more macro level.” She further explains: “This is a warm-weather record. These are
songs about getting out there, thawing things out, and unearthing the truth.
Sometimes you can’t do that in the dead of winter. But when the sun is shining,
even the murkiest future appears hopeful.”
Get Myopia now on iTunes or Amazon and stream it on Spotify.

Seth Glier Wins THREE Independent Music Awards
Marks Glier's Fifth Total IMA Award
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.
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
