Should you be in search of an out-of-the-box sound, unlike anything else currently gracing the airwaves, Poetica is the only album that you should be looking towards.
A unique brainchild of Rachael Sage and cellist Dave Eggar, the project blends jazz-infused instrumentation and other-worldly sensibilities, resulting in an album that promises to invoke awe in those who hear it. And, with the lyrical melodies synonymous with music having been abandoned and replaced by an enchanting display of the spoken word, the collaborative project’s genre-defying and avant-garde nature is confirmed.
“Writing song lyrics is very different for me than writing poems,” explains Rachael Sage when speaking on Poetica. “Poems come from a much more subconscious, mysterious place that I would almost describe as a kind of soul-searching. It’s a very spiritual process for me and I usually learn something after the fact, once each poem is written. I’ve been really enjoying the absence of any kind of song structure while creating these arrangements, and I also greatly credit Dave Eggar for supporting this vision, and my writing, unequivocally.”
