RACHAEL SAGE: "CHOREOGRAPHIC" CD RELEASE

A soulful vocalist and innovative multi-instrumentalist, NYC singer/songwriter and producer Rachael Sage is one of the busiest touring artists in independent music, performing 100+ dates a year with her band The Sequins throughout the US, UK, & Europe. She has earned a loyal following for her dynamic piano playing, delicate guitar work, soulful vocals, and improvisational audience interaction. She has shared stages with Sarah McLachlan, A Great Big World, Judy Collins, Shawn Colvin, Marc Cohn, Jamie Cullum, The Animals and Ani DiFranco. Her songs have appeared on MTV, HBO, the “Fame” soundtrack, and in the last 3 seasons of Lifetime’s controversial reality series,"Dance Moms".

Sage will be celebrating the release of her latest album CHOREOGRAPHIC, which delivers a musically ambitious and emotionally accessible tribute to her very first love: Dance. A former dancer who studied at the School of American Ballet in her teens, Sage has been thrilled to see her music widely embraced by the lyrical dance community over the past several years (videos featuring dancers performing to her music have received over 9.5 million hits on YouTube). She “envisioned each song as a fully-choreographed multi-media experience”; the result is an inspired set of piano-based chamber-pop merging orchestral elements with her signature blend of folk, pop and rock. The album, which will be released on MPress Records May 20, was co-produced by Sage and Grammy® winning producer Andy Zulla (Idina Menzel, Rod Stewart). For more information, visit rachaelsage.com.

Anna Schulze
Anna Schulze is a Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter and guitarist whose music oscillates between raw pop and indie rock.
To date, the Minnesota native has released two albums and two EPs, opened for the Beach Boys, and performed at the legendary Troubadour among other notable US venues. Her song "The Sea" was featured on Season 1 of MTV's "Awkward," and she has composed original music for NBA all-star Carmelo Anthony's lifestyle series "This is MELO."

While attending the University of Southern California, she worked with mentor and Grammy Award-winning producer and songwriter, Glen Ballard in USC's renowned Popular Music Program.

Ballard claims, “Anna Schulze is a refreshing update on the singer/songwriter. She plays electric guitar, sings from the heart, and brings energy and passion to the stage. She simmers and shimmers somewhere between power pop and emo rock, and her melodies evoke the great American summer…”

Anna's single, "Closer" has been featured on NPR's "The Current," and is the second single from her most recent album "Pickford Market," released February 2016.
