Sage will release a Deluxe Reissue of her latest album "Blue Roses" -- digitally on May 26th, and physically on August 28th -- to the U.S., Canada, Europe and Australia. The new single "Coloring Book" will be available on the iTunes pre-order as an instant download. Tracks from the critically acclaimed album also appear in the current season of Lifetime TV's #1 reality show, Dance Moms.

Huffington Post Premiered a music video by Sage and Judy Collins, as they covered Neil Young's ‘Helpless' -- ultimately reaching #2 on the Folk Radio Charts. Sage commented to Huffington Post: "I don't do many cover songs--because I've been writing my own compositions since I was a little kid, it's just not really my thing generally, and I can count the ones I've recorded on less than one hand. But there was something about this song, after I was invited to perform it at a Neil Young tribute at NYC's Highline Ballroom, that just slayed me. It's so essential, and has so much space built into the song itself which must be why so many artists love to reinterpret it; it breathes in such an effortless way, and sounds as expansive as what it's describing. It was such a thrill to record this track with Judy Collins, who has not only been a generous and inspirational mentor to me through the years, but who is also such a great master at making the songs of others her very own. We had so much fun singing 'Helpless' together as a duet in the studio, and it was also an honor as a producer to work with such a legend and do my best to capture what I can only describe as a feeling of pure joy." By Mike Ragogna, 2/20/15

Time Out NY provided numerous placements in recent months, as Sage performed twice in her hometown of New York. In addition to a Color Photo Critic's Pick, TONY selected Sage's show for their list of ‘THE BEST LGBT THINGS TO DO IN NEW YORK THIS WEEK', as well as their ‘Today's Must See Concerts' list. Other local support included Gay City News, Curve Magazine and more.

MOJO has compared Sage's work to "Billy Joel's Gotham zing and brashness...spiked with neatly twisted takes on long-relationship dilemmas".

Rachael Sage has proven herself an idiosyncratic, compelling stage presence, able to infuse her shows with drama, humor, spontaneity, theatricality and, most of all, musical chops (via vocals, keyboard and guitar). With a diverse audience that celebrates her all-inclusive style, Sage has cultivated a comfort zone where GLBT and straight fans meet, with a lush sound that has earned her coverage in such notable outlets as The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, American Songwriter, M Music and Musicians Magazine, iTunes Editorial, NY-1 TV and more. Sage's most recent album, ‘Blue Roses', earned favorable and growing coverage, including an Exclusive streaming Premiere via All Music, a Video Premiere via Yahoo Music, features in Curve Magazine, Keyboard Magazine, The Big Takeover, Examiner, rave reviews via iTunes Editorial, BLURT and more.

Sage's ‘themed' concerts in NYC have earned a reputation for deft, tongue-in-cheek irreverence, and have garnered featured placements via Time Out NY, Good Day NY (FOX-TV,) Huffington Post, Gay City News, NY Daily News, New York Magazine, CURVE and more. Her burgeoning relationship with the legendary Judy Collins was featured via this Wall Street Journal Exclusive Video interview and Song Premiere - a duet of Neil Young's ‘Helpless', filmed at the famed Steinway Hall in New York City, the day before its closing:  http://youtu.be/rVqfiWFGQSw
