Another great show that I am looking forward to catching! I’ve been hearing so much about both of these artists in the past few weeks…some surprised that Rachael Sage was booked in such a small room. Sounds like a show not to miss!
RACHAEL SAGE: A soulful vocalist and innovative keyboardist, singer/songwriter and producer Rachael Sage has become one of the busiest touring artists in independent music, performing 150+ dates a year with her band The Sequins throughout the US, UK, Europe and Asia. She has earned a loyal following for her infectious melodies, poetic lyrics, and often-outrageous, colorful stage banter.
Sage has shared stages with Sarah McLachlan, Colin Hay, Marshall Crenshaw, Marc Cohn, The Animals and Ani DiFranco. She has performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and received numerous songwriting awards including The John Lennon Songwriting Contest (Grand Prize) and several Independent Music Awards and OUTMusic Awards.
MPress Records will release her 10th album, “Haunted By You” in May. Featuring The Sequins as well as guest appearances by Dar Williams, Mike Visceglia (Suzanne Vega), David Immergluck (Counting Crows), Doug Yowell (Duncan Sheik) and more, it was self-produced by Sage and mixed by Kevin Killen (U2, Elvis Costello).
GREGORY DOUGLASS: Douglass’ evocative, alternative sound “channels everyone from Stevie Wonder to Fiona Apple in a way that’s terrifyingly mature for someone so young” according to Instinct Magazine. With seven critically acclaimed, independent CDs under his belt, the 28-year old Vermont native has shared the stage with artists like They Might Be Giants, Third Eye Blind, The Weepies, Jason Mraz, Regina Spektor and Margaret Cho. Douglass is touring extensively in support of his latest release, BATTLER, featuring duets with friends and fellow Vermonters Grace Potter (Grace Potter & The Nocturnals/ Hollywood Records) and Anais Mitchell (Righteous Babe Records). http://www.gregorydouglass.com/fr_home.cfm
