Award-winning singer/songwriter Rachael Sage has announced the release of her forthcoming full-length studio album, “Choreographic”, due May 20 (MPress/ILS/Caroline). Through this self-described “ballet-pop”, Sage delivers a musically ambitious and emotionally accessible tribute to her very first love: Dance. Fresh off the heels of her 13th song placement on Lifetime TV’s Dance Moms, Sage’s music has reached an ever-widening audience since her previous release “Blue Roses”, amassing over 9.5 million views on YouTube.
Connecting to her roots in ballet, the NYC-based Sage “envisioned each song as a fully-choreographed multi-media experience” while crafting the album. The result is an inspired set of piano-based chamber-pop merging orchestral elements with her signature blend of folk, pop and rock. “Making this album was a meditation on my lifelong relationship to ballet and more recently, to lyrical dance. Dance gave me virtually everything I cherish as an artist: melody, expressiveness, a sense of ensemble, a love of costume and fashion, and foremost, discipline.” Sage has several dance-centric videos in the works including one for the single “I Don’t Believe It”, which explores the topic of bullying and will feature 3-time national dance champion Kaci King, an eleven-year-old performer who reached out to Sage on Facebook.
