Self-taught musician, poet and producer Rachael Sage radiates what MOJO Magazine calls “warm, intelligent…NY indie charm”. An innovative, improvisational keyboardist, she performs over 150 dates a year with her band, The Sequins, throughout North America, Europe and Asia. Sage, who has shared stages with Sarah McLachlan, Judy Collins, Marc Cohn, The Animals and Ani DiFranco, was named one of the Top 100 Independent Artists Of The Past 15 Years by Performing Songwriter magazine. Her new self-produced album, DELANCEY STREET, contains a dozen tracks of what CMJ calls “a resonant mixture of pop, folk and jazz.” Tucson-based songwriter Namoli Brennet has been touring the country since 2002. She is described as a cross between Lucinda Williams, Patty Griffin and Sheryl Crow, and Zocalo magazine called her music, "Gorgeous and introspective." She's a breathtaking and moving performer, and her sweet, road-weary voice is as quick to deliver her wit and humor as it is a turn of phrase.
