We had the great privilege of hosting the indie artist of indie artists- Rachael Sage at #PutnamsUnplugged on Sunday, May 10th. In preparation for the show, SLB went to her indie label offices of MPress Records to do a two part interview. The first part of the interview we discuss Sage’s artistry from visual to musical influences. She also discuss her new album Blue Roses as well as her extensive touring. We also hear live clips of her performance at Putnam’s Pub & Cooker. We also discuss songwriting, collaboration with Judy Collins on a Neil Young cover tune – Helpless. She shares insight into her world with a tenderness, as we hear the angst of being an artist and the ever question of when are we ever ready to collaborate with those that we have come before us.
Part 2 we cover how her indie label Mpress came about and how she finds and signs artists, also how should an indie artist present themselves to a label, dos and don’t, etc.
