Sage celebrates the national release of 'Delancey Street', her 9th album on MPress Records.Sage was recently featured in The Wall Street Journal & 'Delancey Street' was given a four-star review from All Music Guide. More examples of the great early reviews from the press below.
Equal parts unique comedic theatricality and stellar musicianship, Sage never fails to deliver what The Washington Post calls a “balance of flamboyance and femininity…a performance as distinctive as it (is) entertaining.”
Joel Crane (Mojo, Q and NME Magazines) on Jay Nash: "There’s no bravado, no ill-placed audacity. Nash, it's plain to see, is one of us - one of the good guys. A trailblazer for passion and hard graft - a man who knows no limitation."
The New York Post on Joe Firstman: "With his piano-powered attack and his rock eclecticism, newcomer Joe Firstman reminds you of [a young] Elton John... Firstman is the real thing."
About 'Delancey Street':
‘Delancey Street’ is the ninth album by the NYC-based chanteuse. She describes it as an “album about change,” creatively inspired by Sage’s ancestral and current home, New York’s Lower East Side. The record features eleven original compositions, plus an inspired cover of the Hall & Oates classic ‘Rich Girl’. A thirteenth song, Sage’s understated rendition of ‘Fame’, will be offered as a Bonus Track on iTunes. The album, available now, is a musical exploration of identity, cultural heritage, and how where we come from shapes the paths we ultimately take in life.
'Delancey Street' is in stores now and available on iTunes & Amazon .
