Rachael Sage
is an American singer-songwriter who performs at Baruch Performing Arts Center on March 28th at 7:30pm in her unique style of chamber/pop with violin and cello.


Sage has shared stages with Sarah McLachlan, Judy Collins, Marc Cohn, The Animals and Ani DiFrance and was named one of the “Top 100 Independent Artists of the Past 15 Years” by Performing Songwriter magazine.  Her performances combine musicianship with between-song banter, what the New York Times recently dubbed Sage's "inner Fanny Brice."  She was born in Long Island’s Port Chester and studied drama and ballet before switching to music. She has released ten albums on her own label MPress Records and regularly tours both North America and Europe.

 

Sage is a self-taught pianist influenced by her parents' Doo-Wop and Beatles records as well as Broadway cast albums.  Early on, she created demos on a 4-track recording system she received as a Bat Mitzvah present. During Junior High school, Sage gained admission to the School of American Ballet. Later for college, Sage attended the prestigious Stanford University earning a degree in Drama. Afterward, she enrolled in the Actors Studio MFA program. Her performance in their New York Talent Search won Sage a place on the Village Stage of the 1997 Lilith Fair.

 

Legendary pop producer Phil Ramone said of working with Sage that he was reminded of his work with Bob Dylan, and that "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.

 

Most recently, Sage's "Brave Mistake" was nominated for Best Story Song at The 10th Annual Independent Music Awards, and Sage took home OUTstanding Producer for her song "Hope's Outpost" at The 7th Annual OUTMusic Awards. 

 

Her albums include:  Morbid Romantic (1995), Smashing the Serene (1998), Painting of a Painting (2001), Illusion's Carnival (2002), Public Record (2003), Ballads & Burlesque (2004), The Blistering Sun (2006), Chandelier (2008), Delancey Street (2010), Haunted By You (2012), and Haunted By You - The Acoustic EP (2012).
