MUSIC NEWS & INTERVIEWS New Summer Sounds from Soul, R&B and Funk to Americana, Folk and Pop!

CHOREOGRAPHIC Big Blend Radio interview with award-winning singer-songwriter Rachael Sage about her new full-length studio album, ‘Choreographic.’ Through this self-described "ballet-pop", Sage delivers a musically ambitious and emotionally accessible tribute to her very first love - Dance. Fresh off the heels of her 16th song placement on Lifetime TV’s ‘Dance Moms’, Sage’s music has reached an ever-widening audience since her previous release ‘Blue Roses’, amassing over 9.5 million views on YouTube. On disarmingly honest songs like ‘I Don’t Believe It’, ‘Heaven’ and ‘French Doors’, incisive lyrics and yearning melodies merge into something expansive. The lexicon of ballet may be French, but in Sage’s hands on ‘Choreographic’, ballet-pop becomes a decidedly universal musical language. Connecting to her roots in ballet, the NYC-based Sage "envisioned each song as a fullychoreographed multi-media experience" while crafting the album. The result is an inspired set of piano-based chamber-pop merging orchestral elements with her signature blend of folk, pop and rock. “Making this album was a meditation on my lifelong relationship to ballet and more recently, to lyrical dance. Dance gave me virtually everything I cherish as an artist: melody, expressiveness, a sense of ensemble, a love of costume and fashion, and foremost, discipline.” Sage has several dancecentric videos in the works including one for the single ‘I Don't Believe It’, which explores the topic of bullying and will feature 3-time national dance champion Kaci King, an eleven-year-old performer who reached out to Sage on Facebook. A soulful vocalist and innovative multiinstrumentalist, singer/songwriter and producer Rachael Sage has become one of the busiest touring artists in independent music, performing 100+ dates a year with her band, The Sequins, throughout the US, UK, Europe and Asia. She has earned a loyal following for her dynamic piano playing, delicate guitar work, soulful vocals and improvisational audience interaction. Visit: http://RachaelSage.com.
