Performing Songwriter - "Sexy, self-possessed and impressive...a performer to be taken seriously, a force to be reckoned with."
The Boston Globe - "She is a forthright, sassy, twentysomething New Yorker, with an independent drive...a strong voice that rings with despair, passion, anger, hope, and glory. Watch out for Rachael Sage."
The Village Voice - "Earthiness, color and emotion...Sage has folk on the brain and piano keys for hands and is sure to put on a show sublime."
Album Network - "Her music is deeply personal and sometimes quirky, her adeptness at blending in various ethnic tonalities gives her a sound that is universal in appeal."
HX For Her - "Rachael Sage is a beauty. She's a talented pianist. She's a folk singer with an amazing voice."
Ani DiFranco - "Go buy Rachael's album. She's not sitting at home whining because she wants to be a musician. she is a real musician touring because she wants to, without the help of the corporate umbrella."
