Rachael Sage's 'Delancey Street' available on iTunes Today!

"... emotionally riveting songs underpinned by lush melodies, inventive arrangements and a flair for the dramatic."
Rachael Sage - Delancey Street

NEW YORK, NY - Singer/songwriter/producer Rachael Sage weaves an introspective tapestry of a gypsy seeking a home on ‘Delancey Street’. The MPress Records release, set for May 18th brick-and-mortar (and available digitally on today via iTunes,) is a musical exploration of identity...of cultural heritage, family history, and how where we come from shapes the paths we ultimately take in life.

Drawing inspiration from her immigrant Jewish heritage as a creative starting point, Sage’s atmospheric collection evokes a weathered scrapbook, as if each track captured a moment in time and articulated the experiences through song. The CD reflects Sage’s deeper sense of perspective, earned after a decade on the road, living without a true ‘home’. This past year, she made a conscious decision to reestablish her roots, solidify her relationships, and bring balance to her untethered life. The result is ‘Delancey Street’.

Delancey StreetFeaturing an art-rock sound reminiscent of the idiosyncratic work of Kate Bush, the CD, Sage’s ninth, features 12 songs (eleven original compositions plus an inspired cover of the Hall & Oates classic, ‘Rich Girl’.) A thirteenth song, Sage’s understated rendition of ‘Fame’, will be offered as a Bonus Track for iTunes buyers.

‘Delancey Street’ is the ninth album by NYC songstress Rachael Sage. She describes it as an "album about change," creatively inspired in various ways by Sage's ancestral and current home, New York's Lower East Side. Mixed by Grammy® Winner Kevin Killen (Kate Bush, Peter Gabriel) and recorded by longtime collaborator John Shyloski (Stephen Kellogg, Johnny Winter), the album features her touring band, The Sequins: Quinn (Tracy Chapman, Jesca Hoop), Dave Eggar (Evanescence, Coldplay) and Russ Johnson (Elvis Costello); guest musicians include Everett Bradley (Hall & Oates), Jack Petruzelli (Rufus Wainwright), Will Lee (the Fab Faux) and Doug Yowell (Ari Hest, Dar Williams). Sage will embark on a nationwide tour in support of ‘Delancey Street’ starting off at SXSW 2010 and continuing through the fall. Artist website:

Self-taught pianist, poet and producer Rachael Sage radiates what MOJO Magazine calls "warm, intelligent...NY indie charm". An innovative, improvisational keyboardist, she performs over 150 dates a year with her band The Sequins throughout North America, Europe and Asia.

Recently named one of the Top 100 Independent Artists Of The Past 15 Years by Performing Songwriter magazine, Sage has shared the stage with Marc Cohn, Ani DiFranco, Colin Hay, The Animals and Judy Collins. A Grand Prize Winner in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest (Rock) as well as a two-time Independent Music Award and OUTMusic Award winner, Rachael has earned a loyal following for her infections melodies, poetic lyrics and often-outrageous, colorful stage banter.

About SoulSpill
SoulSpill, a new band hailing from Colorado is poised to storm onto the alternative rock and grunge scene with their debut LP. This five piece group includes Kevin McKinnie singing lead, Eric Taysom playing rhythm guitar and signing backup, Jesse Howard on lead guitar, Josh Corbet on the bass guitar, and Joel Burns smashing the skins.

SoulSpill sounds like a mash-up of Black Sabbath and Pearl Jam. They incorporate heavy guitar riffs and deft high-speed solos into blues infused licks. "It isn't overly heavy nor overly soft," said the band. "It uses a lot of different influences that blend together." The group loves and studies the music of forerunners like Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd as well as grunge pioneers, Nirvana. This influential range lends a unique sound to SoulSpill. Characteristics of all three of these bands are readily apparent in SoulSpill's music, but there is also something more, a unique tone and image. "[Our] image comes from people listening," said the group in a recent interview, "we just want them to see us in their own way, and that's the image we'll convey."

Michael Desselle - "Low Tech Red Neck"

Michael Desselle - "Low Tech Red Neck"

With "Low Tech Red Neck" Michael Desselle completes a departure from the "Artist formerly known as Molten Mike", implementing the very natural transition from Blues to Country.

This country style song sports a powerful adoption of genre standards, exposing a great musical performance by Michael, while at the same time exalting his colorful deep voice and his thought provoking lyrics. What's really impressive about this song is the mannier in which Desselle so uniquely mixed the classic sound of country music with these modern topics. It's not one to be missed.

Country Artist Michael Desselle has just released "Low Tech Redneck" and "Goin' Back to Tennessee" through Ranluron Music.

Michael Desselle's songs can be listened to and hard copies or downloads can be purchased by going to, Itunes, Allmusic and Digstation,and many other download sites.

Inside MarilynMusic: Meet Michael Gaines

By Michele Wilson-Morris
(more articles from this author)

MarilynMusic, made of up songwriting duo Casey Conrad and Michael Gaines, currently has numerous wonderful, but unreleased tracks under its belt. With everything from teasing, taunting dance tracks to deeply heartfelt ballads, MarilynMusic's songs come in just about every genre you can think of from pop to reggae, R&B to country, and more. The music certainly has a story to tell, and so do the two men behind it. They each draw inspiration from a lifetime spent in the music and entertainment industry that began in early childhood. Between the two of them, they have worked in every aspect of the entertainment industry including television, film, off Broadway shows, and playing studio sessions. In recent years, however, Conrad and Gaines shifted their focus to composing and producing music, and the results are astounding. In Part I of my article on MarilynMusic, it's my pleasure to introduce you to Michael Gaines.

Music press kitsQuantcast

Michael Gaines' entire family, it seems, is or was involved in the music industry in one way or another. Gaines had two very successful song writing uncles, and a grandfather who owned one of the first recording studios in New York City. His mother was a New York session singer and contractor for over 30 years. She was Burt Bacharach's vocal director for many years, singing on all of his major recordings. Over the course of his life, he has participated in practically every conceivable part of the entertainment industry and he started early. He began studying dance at age five, performed at age seven at the Carnegie Recital Hall, and attended the American School of Ballet, appearing as the prince in the NYC Ballet production of the Nutcracker at twelve. He also performed in numerous television commercials, shows and voiceovers. Gaines' earliest memory of performing in a TV commercial was the first Kit Kat commercial ever aired. He was seven. He also modeled for various magazines including Harper's Bazaar.

"I guess I've been in show business since before I was born," said Gaines. "I literally grew up in the many recording and television studios of New York mostly waiting for my mother or often working myself. My father also had an extensive career as a producer/actor/writer."

Gaines went on to study music through high school, then at North Texas State and later the Manhattan School of Music in 1973 and 1974. After school, he followed his family to LA to try his hand in the film industry. He began as a production assistant at Chartoff / Winkler Films and worked on movies like Raging Bull, Rocky 2 and The Right Stuff. Gaines moved up in the ranks, securing a position as story editor for Koch/Kirkwood Productions working on "The Pope of Greenwich Village" and eventually began writing and selling his own film and TV projects to studios like Fox, Paramount and Warner Bros. Gaines recently co-produced the film "Wednesday Again" and is an Executive Producer of a pilot currently being set up both on the internet, and cable television. He also plans to produce the film "The Auctioneer" soon.

During his career, Gaines has worked with legendary stars like Merv Griffin, Juliet Prowse, George Balanchine, Robert Deniro, Mickey Rourke and many others. But despite his success in film and television, music was always his first calling. He became very close to his stepfather (his mother's second husband) songwriter/producer Bob Wells, who taught him about music publishing. When Wells became ill, he entrusted his extensive, very successful catalog to Gaines and left the catalog to the Gaines family when he passed away in 1999, which allowed him to pursue a career writing music.

Addressing where his inspiration comes from, he says, "I had a teacher who was a great influence on me who said that if you wait for inspiration when writing or creating anything, you might wait a very long time. He said one must sit down and do the work. I heard that Woody Allen starts writing at six o'clock in the morning and sits there until at least ten even if nothing comes out. I'm a musician, I'm not up at six a.m., but I understand the commitment. I feel that talking about the creative process or trying to capture it in words is a waste of time because it's so intangible to begin with. But I will say that New York City is a place that's inspirational to me. There are more interesting things and people on one block in New York City than in a ten mile radius anywhere else."

When asked what the worst advice was he'd ever been given, he responds "All of the advice has been good as long as I was smart enough not to take it all. What I'm focused on now is happiness, health, making more music, doing good deeds and good work in the future."
