For this special performance, Sage will accompany herself on piano and guitar and will be joined by longtime collaborator Russ Johnson on trumpet (Elvis Costello, Aretha Franklin) along with cellist Stephanie Winters (Richie Havens, Paula Cole), who played all of the original string parts on "Public Record". The trio will perform a unique program of material from "Public Record", including brand new arrangements of "Too Many Women" - which appeared in the movie "Fame" - along with "Someone Save Me" (which Sage wrote in high school as a response to being bullied), "What If", "Bravedancing" and "Frost", which Sage discovered has become a staple in the competitive dance world, via You Tube.
A soulful vocalist and innovative keyboardist, Sage performs over 150 shows a year internationally and has appeared at two Edinburgh Fringe Festivals, where her engaging theatricality and compelling stage presence earned her rave reviews. A former ballerina who discovered her flair for melodic composition while attending The School Of American Ballet, she's shared the stage with Grammy Winners Sarah McLachlan, Judy Collins, Marc Cohn, Suzanne Vega, and Ani DiFranco, and received many accolades including several Independent Music Awards.
