"Blue Roses" Long Form Album Biography - Link to PDF

A soulful vocalist and innovative multi-instrumentalist, singer/songwriter and producer Rachael Sage has become one of the busiest touring artists in independent music, performing 100+ dates a year with her band The Sequins throughout the US, UK, Europe and Asia. She has earned a loyal following for her dynamic piano playing, delicate guitar work, soulful vocals, and improvisational audience interaction.

Sage has shared stages with Sarah McLachlan, A Great Big World, Judy Collins, Colin Hay, Shawn Colvin, Marc Cohn, The Animals and Ani DiFranco. She has performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and received numerous songwriting awards including The John Lennon Songwriting Contest (Grand Prize) and several Independent Music Awards. Her songs have appeared on MTV, HBO, the “Fame” soundtrack, and in the current season of Lifetime’s #1 reality series,”Dance Moms”.

MPress Records released Sage’s latest full-length album, “Blue Roses”, on November 4 in the US (March 2015 in the UK/Ireland). Produced by Sage and Grammy® Nominee John Shyloski (Johnny Winter, Stephen Kellogg), the album features 13 brand new chamber-pop gems, and showcases the NYC-based multi-instrumentalist’s confident, sophisticated songwriting. Featuring members of Daft Punk, Patti Smith and Bruce Springsteen’s bands, the recording includes a duet with folk icon Judy Collins. For more information, visit rachaelsage.com.
