Award winning Independent artist Rachael Sage releases a new album.

"Blue Roses"

Award winning Independent artist Rachael Sage has just released a new album of 13 songs titled “Blue Roses”. One of the highlights of the new album is a duet with Grammy Award winning folk legend Judy Collins. Along with Collins, other guests appearing on Rachael's new album are Daft Punk drummer Quinn, Everett Bradley, James Mastro, Jack Petruzelli and A Fragile Tomorrow.

“Blue Roses” is the culmination of two year's work for Sage who says, “these are incredibly confusing, chaotic time we're living in, and the older I get the more vital it seems to me to document unabashed, wholehearted empathy wherever and however I can as an artist.”

Fans of the reality series “Dance Moms” and the 2009 remake of the movie “Fame” will recognize Sage's music. The former ballet dancer has had 10 of her songs appear on the hit dance show and the song “Too Many Women” was handpicked to be a part of the soundtrack for “Fame”.

Never a sit about the house lazing around kind of girl, Rachael designs a lot of her own stage costumes. Her band is named The Sequins. Rachael tours with the band making over 100 appearances each year.

Throughout her career, Rachael has shared the stage with A Great Big World Semi Precious Weapons, Marc Cohn, The Animals, Shawn Colvin, Sarah McLachlan, Colin Hay, Ani DiFranco, and Judy Collins.

Comparing her to Bob Dylan when it comes to her musical workings, Phil Ramone said of Rachael Sage, “she has a very unusual way of treating a pop song. I admire her editorial and musical ability when it comes to crafting a tune.”
