Rachael Sage, the multi-talented American Pop Rock singer, songwriter, and musician has a brand-new release Choreographic, released on her Indy label, MPress Records. The 13-track release proves that 13 is a lucky number as the release is as sparkling as her lovely voice. An "artist's artist" in addition to being a singer, songwriter, and musician, Rachael is also an artist, graphic designer, dancer, actor, and choreographer, when actors are thought to be a "triple threat" if they can act, sing, and dance, Rachael Sage's creativity and ability explodes off the charts.

Rachael Sage - Choreographic was produced by Rachael Sage and Andy Zulla
and released on the MPressRecords
label. Rachael Sage wrote 11 of the songs on the release, and co-wrote Home with Fiona Hart; JP Hoe wrote Learn To Let You Go.
The 13-track release opens with the song, Heaven (Is A Grocery Clerk), an upbeat,
piano driven song that duly complements Rachael's voice and the opening lyrics
of "Gimme something to dream about, ... oh give me, Something to laugh about ..."
that sets the stage so to speak to let the audience know to sit up and listen
closely to the inspired lyrics.
Next in the line-up is the song, Loreen, followed by the catchy song, Try Try Try. Musically speaking, Rachael hit it out of the ballpark
with this song as it reached the number 6 position on the AC Top 40 Radio
Chart. Extremely well done, Rachael layers in instrumentals like a chef adds
the right amount of spices.
Rachael slows the pace with Home (Where I Am Now), which is about the ability to lose yourself
or create a new self in a new city, with the city in question being New York
City, where so many people go for the same reason.
I Don't Believe It opens with a "scat-like" pop opening
and picks up the pace with beautiful instrumentals throughout to complement
Rachael's voice and lyrics, then segues into the slow and lovely, French Doors, which is fabulous and
makes the most of the impressive horns that lend another "voice" to this song. Clear Today has a long instrumental
opening that segues into lyrics about the decision to leave someone you care
Rachael continues with the song, I've Been Waiting, which has an almost 60's psychedelic instrumental
feel of an opening that drives the song, then slows the pace with the next
songs, Learn To Let You Go, followed
by Five Alarms, 7 Angels, and It Would Be
The release closes with Home
(Acoustic) featuring Matt Nakoa who lends his vocals to Rachael's for a
fabulous finish. It is interesting to listen and compare the two versions of Home, track 3 and the acoustic version, both of which are well done.
We had the pleasure of experiencing Rachael Sage perform at
The Ridgefield Playhouse in Ridgefield, Connecticut in February 2017 when she
was supporting Blues Rocker Beth Hart, where she played some cuts off Choreographic. After listening to the
release and experiencing Rachael Sage perform live, we can readily assure you
that she is act that you do not want to miss.
