Rachael Sage is a soulful vocalist, innovative multi-instrumentalist and award-winning singer/songwriter and producer from NY who has earned a loyal international following for her dynamic piano playing, delicate guitar work, and improvisational audience interaction. A six-time Independent Music Award winner, Sage has toured with an eclectic list of artists including Howard Jones, Beth Hart, Ani DiFranco, and Grammy® winners Shawn Colvin and Judy Collins – with whom she also recorded a critically-acclaimed duet of Neil Young's "Helpless". Her music has been dubbed "wildly expressive" by Paste Magazine, and Stereo Embers described Sage as "the kind of performer you can't take your eyes off". Her 2020 album Character yielded the Billboard-charting single "Blue Sky Days"; her side project Poetica, an adventurous fusion of poetry with jazz, classical and Americana musical elements in the vein of Leonard Cohen and Laurie Anderson, debuted in October 2021. Her latest single, "Revelation Ground" is out now on MPress/Universal/Virgin. A new full-length album, The Other Side is due in 2023. For more information, visit rachaelsage.com.
Annalyse & Ryan
Annalyse & Ryan are a NY-based Americana duo. Their sound and songs take listeners on a soulful, rootsy journey, “resounding from the hollers with a haunting beauty” (Jeff Biggers, Huffington Post). The sweetness and severity in their music echos a cross between The Civil Wars and Tedeschi Trucks Band. Annalyse & Ryan’s strong harmonies melt together seamlessly, with an undeniable edge: a symbiotic clash reminiscent of their differing senses of place, yet their ironically parallel styles of seeing the world. Their music has been featured on CBS, BBC, and in multiple documentaries. The duo is touring this spring in support of their new EP Trilogy. The album features a phenomenal group of musicians brought together for this 3-song project.
