Free Music Monday! Rachel Sage - "Invisible Light"

Ms. Sage is a tremendously talented songwriter whose lyrics call out for close inspection and easily bear the banner of poetry, and the result of her step into the unknown is that her finely crafted words have found a new, string-laden environment in which to thrive. Haunted By You is a passionate collection of self-produced songs unified in part by the artistic desire to plumb the depths of what it means to fall in and out of love. Perhaps more importantly, the album shimmers with unflagging honesty and sincerity that is both self-reflective and confessional, yet manages to evade all the usual clich├ęd pitfalls—no small feat considering the heart is her subject matter of choice.

This time around, in addition to her always impressive touring band, The Sequins, Rachael Sage is joined by a number of excellent fellow songwriters and musicians, including Dar Williams, Mike Visceglia (Suzanne Vega), Lucy Woodward, Katie Costello, David Immergluck (Counting Crows), all of whom contribute their own unique touch to the album. In addition, Haunted by You benefits from the mixing of Grammy® Winner Kevin Killen (U2, Elvis Costello, Peter Gabriel). The album is both a reinvention and continuation in the evolution of an exceptional musician, and showcases lush arrangements of brilliant chamber pop. Fans of Bareilles, Carol King, The Fray, Adele, Sarah McLachlan and Rufus Wainwright will be particularly drawn to the sonic delights the inimitable Rachael Sage has to offer.
