EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH AMERICAN SONGWRITER

“Genuine talent…Sage has a knack for writing melodies that will break your heart…Where there’s poignancy there’s also subtlety, unforced passion and knowing observation.”
– RollingStone.com
“Inspired by…Elvis Costello, & backed by brilliant East Village friends of Rufus, Antony and such, Sage hits somewhere between the bed-sit & the cellarful of noise and it does you good.”
– MOJO (UK)
“Sage has matured into an excellent songwriter with insight into the human condition that avoids cliché and has a unique voice.”
– WXPN

“‘Haunted By You’ marks a leap forward in both musical elegance and emotional power.”
– iTunes
“…her keen ironic sense of humor and quirky sense of the profound is what makes her special as a songwriter…Sage is the stitch between the great rock and pop traditions of the past and what those traditions have wrought in the hypermodern world of the present.”
– Billboard

MPress Records label founder and singer-songwriter Rachael Sage announces CMJ performance on October 17th at Rockwood Music Hall in New York. In addition, Rachael will be on tour through the end of the year playing with legendary acts such as Judy Collins & Al Stewart all over the U.S., U.K., and Ireland.
These concert dates follow a successful release of Rachael’s Haunted By You Acoustic EP,which became available via iTunes on July 18th, 2012. Featuring material from her recent 10th album “Haunted By You,” the acoustic EP marks another first for the acclaimed artist during the milestone year of her 10th release.  The collection of guitar-based originals, supported by members of Sage’s touring band The Sequins, includes guest appearances by Dar Williams, Katie Costello, Counting Crows member David Immergluck and Grammy ® nominee Seth Glier (MPress will also commemorate this benchmark album with its first vinyl release slated for Fall 2012).

The collection included on the acoustic EP merges the classic pop sensibilities of Sarah McLachlan with the sweeping dynamics of Glen Hansard. Sage’s poetic lyrics shine in this stripped-down setting, while cellist Dave Eggar (Elvis Costello, Coldplay) and percussionist Quinn (Tracy Chapman, Jesca Hoop) add just the right amount of accompaniment to her crystalline vocal performances.
