Rachael Sage

New York singer/songwriter Rachael Sage premieres 'I've Been Waiting' + plays Rockwood on 5.13

Ahead of the release of her latest album 'Choreographic' on 5/20, New York singer/songwriter Rachael Sage today premieres "I've Been Waiting" (streaming below) off the effort. A sultry yet warm song that smoothly melds potentially disparate genres as folk and pop, the string-lined track tells of interpersonal longing with Aimee Mann-like poetic bewitchment. "Cover me with butterfly kisses/I could be the one you haunt," Sage sings, unabashed desire sliding through. Rachael Sage will perform at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2 on 5/13. - Zach Weg

Rachael Sage releases "Haunted by You" at Joe's Pub on May 19

Songwriter Rachael Sage makes no secret of her scars. Her open attitude in discussing life's myriad frustrations and pains makes her music all the more real and personal: like an old friend lending a sympathetic ear. Tracks like the rootsy 'Delancey Street' discuss the hardships of the struggling artist's life, while new song cycle 'Haunted by You' finds the singer in and out of relationships and heartache.

Along with her band The Sequins, Sage takes her candid personality to the kind of roots jams only a city like New York could produce, and that's the best place to see her live too. See her when she officially releases her latest record on May 19 at Joe's Pub. - Mike Levine, photo by Laura Crosta
