Title track "New Destination" drew inspiration from Carole King's Broadway musical, "Beautiful". After Sage left the show with an 'I Feel The Earth Move' feeling, she was determined to write an upbeat groove-tune on the piano with a classic, pop hook. It was recorded with producer Barb Morrison (Deborah Harry, Rufus Wainwright). "I've admired her for years. It was such a blast working with Barb - she has great respect for pop craftsmanship and is also hilariously funny, which I always appreciate in the studio!" Sage comments. The song features Rachael on keys and vocals, Barb Morrison on guitar and bass, and members of Sage's touring band The Sequins including cellist Ward Williams (Sara Bareilles) and Andy Mac (Deni Bonet).
The EP also features musical contributions by longtime studio collaborators including drummer Quinn (Daft Punk), cellist Dave Eggar (A Great Big World, Philip Phillips), guitarist Jack Petruzelli (Rufus Wainwright), violinist Kelly Halloran (G Love), and bassist Mike Visceglia (Suzanne Vega). Percussionist Everett Bradley (E Street Band) also contributed, as did Grammy-nominated engineer John Shyloski (Johnny Winter) and Grammy-winning mixer Andy Zulla (Kelly Clarkson).
"One part Elton John, one part Kate Bush" (UNCUT), Sage has had an illustrious career as an independent artist, praised by the likes of The Wall Street Journal, New York Times and MOJO. She has shared the stage with Eric Burdon, Ani DiFranco, Marc Cohn, Sarah McLachlan, Judy Collins and Elizabeth McGovern (Downton Abbey). Her songs have appeared on MTV, HBO, the "Fame" soundtrack, and the current season of LifetimeTV's #1 reality series, "Dance Moms." Sage has made a name for herself as one of the most active touring artists in indie music with her dynamic piano playing, delicate guitar work and soulful vocals. Billboard has said "her keen ironic sense of humor and quirky sense of the profound is what makes her special as a songwriter" and RollingStone.com called her a "genuine talent."
