Singer Rachael Sage Confirms Summer Festival Appearances in US & UK
Singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Rachael Sage kicks off Summer 2014 with a new EP and appearances at a number of festivals, both stateside and overseas. Sage will be celebrating her latest EP "New Destination", which showcases her confident and sophisticated songwriting, merging classical, folk, pop and rock influences. Featuring members of Daft Punk, Patti Smith and Bruce Springsteen's bands, the eclectic 4-song recording redefines Sage's string-heavy alt-pop within a more adventurous, contemporary setting. The prolific pianist/producer will support "New Destination" with an extensive tour, accompanied by longtime violinist, Kelly Halloran (G Love, Michael Franti).
