Rachael Sage / Lux Deluxe

A soulful vocalist and innovative multi-instrumentalist, award-winning singer-songwriter and producer Rachael Sage has become one of the busiest touring artists in independent music, performing 100-plus dates a year with her band, the Sequins, throughout the U.S., Britain, Europe, and Asia. She has earned a following for her dynamic piano playing, delicate guitar work, soulful vocals. and improvisational audience interaction. Sage has shared stages with Sarah McLachlan, A Great Big World, Judy Collins, Colin Hay, Shawn Colvin, Marc Cohn, the Animals, and Ani DiFranco. Her new single on MPress Records is New Destination, produced by Barb Morrison (Rufus Wainwright, Debbie Harry, the Cliks). An EP of new material is set for release in May.

Lux Deluxe had a very specific goal for its new album, It’s a Girl, out April 15 on SpiritHouse Music. It’s the second LP from a group that has clearly hit its stride, and at an enviable age: the oldest of them is just 22, and they play with rare self-assurance. Lux Deluxe wanted the album to reflect its combustible live performances. To get there, the group spent the better part of two years honing its songs and sound, merging the divergent personalities of the musicians. It’s a Girl features 10 smart, catchy tunes that evoke Lux Deluxe’s influences: Beatles, Dire Straits, and NRBQ, along with latter-day favorites Wilco and Dr. Dog.
