Line Up

“Genuine talent….Sage has a knack for writing melodies that will break your heart without making you feel manipulated in the process….Where there’s poignancy, there’s also subtlety, unforced passion and knowing observation” –

Award winning US singer, songwriter and producer, Rachael Sage, traversed trans-Atlantic lines as she released her stunning single, ‘Invisible Light’ to the UK last August, whilst in the throes of a mammoth US live tour, which extended into a European tour. This incredible talent will again come to Europe in the summer. For Sage - who is also a poet, actor and visual artist, as well as a longtime record label owner (she founded MPress Records a decade ago) - music has always been her primary form of self-expression. Her 10th and latest album ‘Haunted By You’ is no exception as it delves deep into her soul and exposes raw heart-ripping emotions.

Rachael toured with Sadie & The Hotheads in February 2013, played at Midem and her usual SXSW performance, she came over again in the summer of 2013 & 2014 for UK festivals including Cornbury and London Folkfest. Rachael was back in Europe February/March 2015 to promote her duet with Judy Collins and summer 2015 for festivals & gigs and is back again Spring/summer 2016!
