Rachael Sage's "Haunted By You" Wins Independent Music Award!
Celebrated singer-songwriter Rachael Sage's gorgeous new limited edition vinyl package cover art for HAUNTED BY YOU is now an award-winning piece of art. The design recently won an Independent Music Award for Best Music Promo Poster and features exclusive artwork by Oliver Cartwright as well as graphic design by Rachael. Cartwright, a British fan living in Korea, reached out to Sage on Facebook and sparked a creative collaboration that transformed an image into a multi-media piece of art. Sage, an artist by all definitions, regularly creates her own paintings and showcased this talent with exhibits in NYC's Lower East Side and Tribeca neighborhoods, earlier this year. Fusing together Sage's artful eye with Cartwright's unique process (a combination of ink drawings and digital manipulation), this visually stunning collectors edition package will also be numbered and autographed.
