Rachael Sage returns to Club Passim to celebrate the release of her latest full-length album, The Other Side.
A soulful vocalist, innovative multi-instrumentalist and award-winning singer/songwriter and producer from NY, she 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, she 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”.
