Watch: Official Video For Rachel Sage's "Alive"

by VVN Music

Singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer Rachael Sage has developed a symbiotic relationship with the dance world. 

In the last decade, her music has been chosen by many dance groups to use in their performance leading sage to release an album of songs specifically geared towards the dance world, Choreographic.

Sage has now released a new single, "Alive", from her new album Mypopia, out now via MPress Records. The video was shot in a Brooklyn loft and features pint-sized Dance Moms star Elliana Walmsley. The dynamic clip was directed by Nick Clark and choreographed by Gianna Martello (also of Dance Moms). “Alive” was mixed by Grammy Winner Andy Zulla (Kelly Clarkson, Idina Menzel, Rod Stewart). Watch and share “Alive” here and listen to the album on iTunes or Spotify.

Explains Sage, “‘Alive’ is the most upbeat, positive song on my new album ‘Myopia’, and after I wrote it I felt very protective of it - like there was something precious about remembering to appreciate the gift of simply living, even as the world becomes ever-more chaotic. There’s a sense of anticipation and optimism in the lyrics, from the get-go...and it was very important to me that we capture the pure exuberance of the music via the movement of our brilliant young dancer Elliana Walmsley, whose sheer stamina was nothing short of staggering, on set; watching her fly through the air take after take with a smile on her face, bursting with the sheer joy of doing what she loves - however arduous - literally gave me hope for our future!”

A prolific visual artist as well as a musician, Rachael Sage will be showing new "Myopia"–inspired artworks from now through June 23rd at Think Gallery (1 Bleecker St. near Bowery) NYC. The gallery will also be presenting a special reception for Sage’s new work on May 30th, where fans can meet the artist, have a free glass of wine and ask questions in an intimate, casual atmosphere. Sage primarily paints with acrylics, fabric paints and watercolors, often incorporating diverse materials such as sequins, rhinestones, glitter and newspaper.

Sage recently opened for synth-pop wizard Howard Jones during 7 weeks of his almost sold out U.S. tour. Since then, Sage's cover of Jones' "No One Is To Blame" premiered with Billboard and "Sistersong 2018," a special 20th anniversary version of her feminist anthem from 1998 premiered with Bust Magazine. Rachael's single "Spark" from her new album Myopia is currently #19 on FMQB’s AC (Adult Contemporary) Chart, alongside P!nk, Charlie Puth, Maroon 5 & Halsey. Additionally, the album debuted on the College Radio (NACC) Most Added Chart at #19.
