“Try Try Try” Video Premieres With Blurt Magazine, Debuts Live At Rockwood Music Hall / NYC
Behind The Scenes Content Available!
"Try Try Try", the latest video released by award-winning artist Rachael Sage, premiered with esteemed online publication Blurt Magazine and debuted live for fans after Sage's performance at Rockwood Music Hall on January 17, 2017.
Directed by award-winning filmmaker/photographer Tom Moore, the clip features an original pas de deux created by renowned choreographer Sarah O'Gleby (The Oscars, Tony Awards, Ted 2) and performed by ballerina Abigail Simon (American Ballet Theater, Joffrey Ballet) and dancer/actor Marty Lawson (Smash, Movin' Out, Shrek The Musical). Sage also appears in the vibrant, highly stylized video alongside members of her live band, The Sequins.
Sage hopes that dancers and non-dancers alike will enjoy her latest video for one reason above all: "This is a song about that moment where you decide to throw all your plans out the window and commit to the unexpected. It's about embracing love when every fiber in your being is telling you to protect yourself and run - and I think we can all use a bit of that sentiment right now!"
Additional behind the scenes content was also filmed with the team and performers. Check them out below and tell us what you think! More about the premiere and video here.

Rachael Sage To Join Beth Hart Tour February/March 2017
Dynamic Female Artists Team Up For U.S Tour
Rachael Sage will support Grammy-nominated blues rocker Beth Hart on her upcoming U.S. album release tour during February and March 2017.
An adventurous pairing, both of these strong and passionate artists will perform their own soulful brand of music while remaining true to their roots. NYC-based Sage has released 12 albums of eclectic originals on her own label, MPress Records, and will join Hart for just over a dozen dates beginning in Atlanta, Georgia and ending in Kent, Ohio.
While she is most known for what The Village Voice descibes as "lovely and literate folk-pop-rock", Sage also has a musical and personal connection to the blues, which includes her close friend John Lee Hooker. Read more about it HERE.
For Sage it will be a particular thrill to share the stage with Hart, whose powerful voice she first discovered via the Off-Broadway show Love, Janis. She reveals, "I was absolutely blown away by her presence and her incredibly passionate vocals. From that point forward I've followed her career with enormous respect.

Rachael Sage To Support Howard Jones On Spring 2017 Tour
Rachael Sage will be joining iconic synth-pop pioneer Howard Jones on the U.K. leg of his 2017 Spring Tour.
Sage has often named Jones as one of her most beloved artists and a seminal influence on her songwriting, and while she has rarely covered other artists' music, she used to perform his songs including 'No One Is To Blame' at her regular solo piano gig while attending Stanford University.
"It will be a huge honor to share the stage with one of my all-time favorite artists and I can't wait to meet him in person!" she enthuses.
Sage's current album, Choreographic, was released in the U.S. this past May and will be out in the U.K//Europe on November 18th via ILS/Universal/Caroline. She describes it as a "love-letter to dance" and the collection was inspired by her own relationship to ballet, which she studied for many years before shifting full-time to music.

A Fragile Tomorrow Wins Best Cover Song At The Independent Music Awards
'One Way Ticket' Recorded w/Joan Baez, Indigo Girls
A Fragile Tomorrow took home the ‘Best Cover Song’ award at the 15th annual Independent Music Awards on Saturday, November 12.
The Charleston, SC natives’ version of the song ‘One Way Ticket’ was recorded with the legendary folkstress Joan Baez, along with Indigo Girls’ Amy Ray and Emily Saliers on mandolin and banjo.
“I’m always reminded how refreshing it is to be around AFT,” Emily Sailer told Consequence of Sound.“These guys love the true beauty of music, and it shines through in projects like this community rendition of ‘One Way Ticket.'” Amy Ray concluded that “…‘One Way Ticket’ was a cross-generational psychedelic experience with [a] band that I look to for inspiration and evolution.”
Baez agreed, adding “Recording this song with A Fragile Tomorrow was a delightful way to honor and carry on Richard and Mimi’s musical legacy.”
The song appears as a bonus track on A Fragile Tomorrow’s critically acclaimed 2015 album, Make Me Over, a bold exploration into the realms of layered, sophisticated, hauntingly gorgeous power-pop.
