Rachael Sage Live Review

Having been a fan of Rachael Sage for quite some time, I jumped at the chance to see her perform live. On the 16th of May I headed down to Bedford hoping that her studio sound with which I was enamoured would be done justice in a live environment.

Rachael Sage Live Review

Starting with ‘Heaven Is A Grocery Clerk’, I quickly realised that I was not going to leave disappointed. Seated at the piano, her performance allowed us to see her musical talents alongside her clear vocal ability, and the track’s quirky and yet sincere sentiment was a welcome introduction to this idiosyncratic performer.

Up next was a rendition of the the title track of her newly released album ‘Myopia’. With its message of optimism and excitement for the coming days, this song created a buzz of positivity that flew around the small, intimate space of The Bedford. ‘Alive’, an upbeat and lively track, came next and gave Sage the opportunity to show her talents as a guitarist and not just a pianist.

An accapella version of ‘Haunted By Objects’ featuring section of clapping and violin was then played, followed by the stimulating ‘Alive’, and the slow yet stunning ballad that is ‘Bravery’s on Fire’.

Sage’s performance was magnetic, charismatic and truly beautiful. The range of songs that were played showcased her ability to write powerful lyrics for an array of different themes, and her vocal talents were showcased to the fullest extent possible.

Check out her brand new album PseudoMyopia (an acoustic reworking of her previous release ‘Myopia’), and if you get the opportunity to see her live in the future, we would highly recommend that you do…
