Rachael Sage - Another Side - UK Tour 2024 With Very Special Guest - Ebony Buckle

Rachael Sage is a soulful vocalist, innovative multi-instrumentalist and award-winning singer/ songwriter and producer from NY who 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, Sage 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 "witty, graceful, and powerfully intimate" by NPR Music, and American Songwriter described Sage as "one of the most compelling and creative singers and songwriters of the modern era".

Her 2020 album Character yielded the Billboard-charting single "Blue Sky Days"; her side project Poetica, an adventurous fusion of poetry with jazz, classical and Americana musical elements in the vein of Leonard Cohen and Laurie Anderson, debuted in October 2021. Her latest full-length album, The Other Side and its companion album of acoustic reimaginings, Another Side are both out now on MPress/Universal/Virgin. For more information, visit rachaelsage.com.

Line Up

Since founding her own label MPress Records two decades ago, NYC-based folk-pop artist Rachael Sage has steadily released a slew of vibrant, dynamic albums described by Goldmine Magazine as "mesmerizing...thoughtful, pensive and flush with an emotional flourish, all carefully and adeptly executed."

She has toured with an eclectic list of artists including Rufus Wainwright, Ani DiFranco, Beth Hart, Howard Jones, and Grammy® winners Shawn Colvin and Judy Collins – with whom she also recorded a critically-acclaimed duet of Neil Young's "Helpless". In addition to being a six-time Independent Music Award-winning musician and producer, Sage is also a John Lennon Contest Grand Prize winner who has performed at the Edinburgh Fringe, SXSW, and toured globally from Japan to Berlin with her band, The Sequins.

Sage is also a visual artist and former ballet dancer who performed with the New York City Ballet. A self-described "cancer thriver", she is additionally a philanthropic advocate who has raised money for a wide range of causes, including Foundation For Women's Cancer, WHY Hunger, American Refugee Committee, and National Network For Youth (NN4Y). Her 2020 album Character yielded the Billboard-charting single "Blue Sky Days", and her side-project Poetica, an adventurous fusion of poetry with jazz, classical and Americana musical elements in the vein of Leonard Cohen and Laurie Anderson debuted in October 2021.

Rachael's sparkling cover version of the Yazoo classic "Only You", from her full-length album The Other Side, reached #32 on the Mediabase Top 40 radio chart. Her singles "Albatross (feat. Crys Matthews)" and “The Place Of Fun” are out now, from her companion acoustic album Another Side which was released May 2024 on MPress/Universal/Virgin.

“Buckle is incomparable to any other artist, with her originality shining like the North Star.” - Atwood Magazine

Ebony Buckle is London-based conceptual pop artist, originally from Townsville, Australia. She writes and performs with her husband - musician and producer Nick Burns. With her music Ebony holds a mirror to herself and the world, reflecting the human want and struggle to fit in or break out.

Ebony’s debut album Disco Lasers came out in 2021, receiving critical acclaim from the likes of Earmilk and Atwood Magazine, who challenged their readers: “I defy you to name another album as colourful and imaginative as Ebony Buckle’s Disco Lasers''. The album is a collection of audio-visual stories inspired by folk tales and the crossroads between fiction and science, told through Buckle’s soaring vocals & imaginative songwriting.

Her upcoming album Hearts Get Started, will provide an insight into Buckle’s musical exploration of pop, rock and ambient pop over the past 4 years, described by some of her patrons who’ve heard the demos as the prequel to Disco Lasers.

Ebony’s unique voice was first recognised in the BBC’s drama Inspector George Gently, where she performed a version of Silver Dagger which reached number 1 in the iTunes World Music Charts.

Performing her original music across the UK, Europe & Australia, Ebony has been sharing the stage with legendary acts like Solstice, Lifesigns, Focus and Ren Harvieu.
