Rachael Sage is a modern day Renaissance woman. She's the creator of Feather Boa Pop - the psychedelic musings of a young East Village woman who tours the U.S. and Europe playing some of the most interesting music in pop and rock today!
A rare combination of timeless craftsmanship and contemporary feminist sensibilities, THE VILLAGE VOICE has described her music as "earthiness, color and emotion...Sage has folk on the brain and piano keys for hands and is sure to put on a show sublime."
A John Lennon Songwriting Contest and USA Songwriting Competition winner, Rachael has toured with Ani DiFranco, played the Lilith Fair, appeared at Rockrgrl 2000, and won the ASCAP Pop Songwriting Contest twice. Sage runs her own nationally distributed label MPress Records in New York and designs instruments and clothing that have been featured in the New York Times. She has recently written her first book of poetry entitled "Karma's Trapeze," currently only available at her live shows.
"Morbid Romantic" is her debut release on MPress, and marks the beginning of the transition from her teenage years as a synth-pop (yes it's true!) artist into a more acoustic, soulful folk-pop songwriter. In addition to the cynical-romantic subject matter it's title implies, Rachael also deals with topics of racial, sexual and religious discrimination with the powerful songs "The Spirit We" (Disc Makers Contest Finalist), "Stone," and "Language of Flowers".
If you like urban-folk-pop with an eye for beauty and an ear for the absurd, you won't be disappointed in this album!
