Singer-songwriter Rachael Sage had recently arrived back in her home of New York City when she joined Headliner last month for a chat about new music. Having just completed a sellout tour with Irish folk icon Imelda May, she was buzzing to discuss her latest record Revelation Ground, her artistry and production process, and what’s in store for the rest of the year…
You just finished your last three shows in Dublin with Imelda May. How was it being on tour this time around?
It was just amazing. Imelda is the loveliest human being, so warm and generous on top of being an extraordinary multifaceted artist. From beginning to end it was kind of a dream tour, and the perfect situation to resume touring across the pond after such a long time away.
Imelda is one of the strongest, most compelling female artists I’ve ever encountered, and so it’s really been an honour to be part of her tour. I’ve never encountered a headline artist who is so generous with her words on stage about a support act as she’s been with me, and I get the sense that that’s just who and how she is. It’s inspiring, and I try to be that way myself.
