Rachael Sage is one of those singer-songwriters who may have had a hope for musical success but who kept putting out music which was true to her own heart because she felt absolutely compelled to do so. Seven albums later (marked by 2006 release The Blistering Sun), that true-to-herself attitude has worked in her favor and she has gained a strong following of fans who love her for her strong lyrics, alternative attitude and eclectic musical self-accompaniment.

Sage can be seen live on her own and at several festivals in the coming months:
