Poetica Vinyl- The vinyl will be 180-gram vinyl including 4 mailable art postcards.
Cinematic and stylistically expansive, Poetica is a creatively ambitious musical spoken word project distilling a poetic spirit through text, voice, and music in the spirit of Leonard Cohen, Patti Smith, and Laurie Anderson. What began as a remote duo collaboration between poet/vocalist/producer Rachael Sage and three-time Grammy-nominated cellist Dave Eggar eventually evolved into a full-blown spoken word concept album, with musicians contributing from around the globe. Produced and engineered by Sage herself, Poetica aims to create connection and shared experience via the unifying power of words. Adventurous yet familiar in its intimacy, Sage's voice is perfectly at home in the absence of typical song structure, while her musical arrangements fuse elements of jazz, classical and Appalachian folk with surprising agility.
Additional contributors to Poetica include renowned klezmer clarinetist David Krakauer, Spooky Ghost guitarist (and longtime David Bowie bandmate) Gerry Leonard, jazz trumpet player Russ Johnson (Elvis Costello), guitarist Jack Petruzzelli (Patti Smith), UK-based blues harmonica player Will Wilde, violinist Kelly Halloran (Michael Franti), and drummers Doug Yowell (Suzanne Vega) and Quinn (Janelle Monáe).
