Cover Review: Rachael Sage ‘Both Hands’

Rachael Sage has released the first single from her forthcoming album Character: a string quartet version of the classic Ani DiFranco song "Both Hands". 

Originally a song released by folk/pop icon Ani DiFranco, Rachael's fresh, string-quartet take on it is not only musically unexpected but also a full circle moment. Having long been inspired by DiFranco, Rachael's very first tour experience was opening for her, and Ani encouraged Rachael to adhere to her vision both as an indie artist and as a fellow label owner.

Ani's intimately acoustic song re-connected with Rachael on an even deeper level last year. While undergoing treatment after her 2018 cancer diagnosis, she listened to the song as part of a playlist that kept her "determined and strong", which solidified her idea of including it on "Character".
