Rachael Sage: heartfelt new song and touring with Imelda May

Rachel Sage

NEW York City based alt-folk-pop artist Rachael Sage performs in Limerick on Friday May 6 as a guest on Imelda May’s two-month Ireland and UK tour.
Her latest heartfelt new maxi-single ‘Revelation Ground’ is paired with an enchantingly dream-like stop-motion music video.
After a two-year-long break since the release of her 14th studio album entitled Character, ‘Revelation Ground’ becomes a pivotal point in Rachael’s songwriting and production abilities. Featuring two versions mixed by Grammy Award-winning Andy Zulla, ‘Revelation Ground’ features a host of different interpretations, including the original single, a band version, a chamber mix, a folk mix, and an instrumental version.
Packed with luscious acoustic instrumentation, the single acts as a symbolic token of the beauty that still engulfs our world.
Sage explains, “I thought about the lyrics to “Turn, Turn, Turn”, inspired of course by the Old Testament psalm: ‘A time to build up, a time to break down/A time to dance, a time to mourn/A time to cast away stones, a time to gather stones together…’ These ancient and powerful words were an encouragement for me to move gracefully through personal and collective loss. I hope that ‘Revelation Ground’ can likewise provide comfort to listeners weathering hardships, knowing that everything is seasonal and that hope always returns.”
Previously, Rachael Sage has shared the stage with an eclectic array of household names like Lucius, Judy Collins, A Great Big World, Sheryl Crow and Melissa Etheridge.
Imelda May with guest Rachael Sage play University Concert Hall on Friday May 6.
