Rachael SageCritically Acclaimed Songstress Rachael Sage Gears Up for CD Release Tour Behind Her New Album ‘Delancey Street’

MPress Records Sets Digital Release for April 20th, In Stores May 18th

NEW YORK, NY - NEW YORK, NY - On the heels of her successful appearance at this year’s SXSW - which also doubled as her Austin CD Release Party – singer/songwriter and producer Rachael Sage embarks on a 32-city tour in support of her new album ‘Delancey Street’. Sage & her band The Sequins will hit the road this April and tour through the summer. Highlights will include appearances with Grammy® Winner Shawn Colvin and Men At Work front-man Colin Hay.

Sage recently celebrated the biggest hometown show of her career, a holiday event at NYC's Joe's Pub which earned her notable coverage in The NY Times, New York Magazine, Time Out NY and The NY Daily News. The performance featured Sage's trademark theatricality, a trait she showcases on 'Delancey Street'. Leaving aside set lists in favor of a more spontaneous approach, every show she performs combines stellar musicianship with hilarious between-song banter recently described by The New York Times as Sage's "inner Fanny Brice".

Delancey Street‘Delancey Street’ is the ninth album by the NYC chanteuse. She describes it as an “album about change,” creatively inspired by Sage’s ancestral and current home, New York’s Lower East Side. The record features eleven original compositions, plus an inspired cover of the Hall & Oates classic ‘Rich Girl’. A thirteenth song, Sage’s understated rendition of ‘Fame’, will be offered as a Bonus Track on iTunes. The album, available digitally on April 20th and in stores May 18th, is a musical exploration of identity, cultural heritage, and how where we come from shapes the paths we ultimately take in life.
