Rachael Sage Album and Tour Announced
Rachael Sage weaves an introspective tapestry of a gypsy seeking a home on 'Delancey Street'. The MPress Records release, set for May 18th brick-and-mortar (and available digitally on April 20th via iTunes,) is a musical exploration of identity...of cultural heritage, family history, and how where we come from shapes the paths we ultimately take in life.
Drawing inspiration from her immigrant Jewish heritage as a creative starting point, Sage's atmospheric collection evokes a weathered scrapbook, as if each track captured a moment in time and articulated the experiences through song. The CD reflects Sage's deeper sense of perspective, earned after a decade on the road, living without a true 'home'. This past year, she made a conscious decision to reestablish her roots, solidify her relationships, and bring balance to her untethered life. The result is 'Delancey Street'.
Sage puts it bluntly: "'Delancey Street' is an album about change, written by someone who happens to be petrified of making the wrong choices."
Featuring an art-rock sound reminiscent of the idiosyncratic work of Kate Bush, the CD, Sage's ninth, features 11 songs (ten original compositions plus an inspired cover of the Hall & Oates classic, 'Rich Girl'.) A twelfth song, Sage's understated rendition of 'Fame', will be offered as a Bonus Track for iTunes buyers. Of 'Rich Girl', Sage comments, "Hall & Oates have been a huge influence on me since I was a kid…I saw them perform this past New Year's Eve, and when I went back into the studio a few days later, I found myself banging out this song on the Wurlitzer."
