Review: Sage + The Saints – I Will Lie EP

I Will Lie now available on iTunes!

Sage and the Saint’s new EP ‘I Will Lie’, is a well written homage to country music.

When I first listened to the EP the song ‘Love and Pain’ made me burst out in tears. Not the watery or welled up eyes but big fat tears that cause me to ugly cry right in the middle of my cubicle. Between the piano intro and Sage’s voice which is filled with so much emotion you have no choice to feel….something.

Lyrically it’s completely relatable and when I should have been paying attention to the EP, I began to think about my personal life. I love songs that make me think and drive me to make changes. If this was Sage’s goal then mission accomplished.

Her song writing has grown so much since her last EP ‘Learning to Walk’ (FYI Ashtray is still my favorite song!). When I first heard the song ‘Take me to the South’ I felt it was nice bar song and didn’t think too much about it. But it’s the song that I find myself humming the most. It’s the type of song that’ll pop in your head on a regular basis but not in that irritating way. It’s like finding a twenty dollar bill in your wallet – just makes you happy.

“Take me to the south where the things move slow, we can talk about life, the city been mean and I’m tired of these street….”

Now I know why she left LA for the Nashville!

To say I enjoyed this EP would be an understatement.

Check out her music—-> Sage

Video: Sage + The Saints – Would I Run

Today, Sage and The Saints released her new video ‘Would I Run’ in support of her upcoming EP release ‘I Will Lie’ on August 22nd. Would I Run captures the softer side of the infamous chameleon known as Sage. After leaving LA a few years ago Sage followed her heart to the country music mecca, Nashville. Sage’s embraced all the Nashville has to offer and her new music will reflect just that. I look forward to her new EP!

Stay tune for more Sage news…..

Upcoming show: Kevin Earnest @ Room 5

If you’re in the LA area on June 29th, you should check out Kevin Earnest with his special guest Chris Saunders at Room 5. if you’ve never seen Kevin perform you will be seriously impressed and will just want him to continue to play.

Sorry the video is really dark but all you really need to do is listen to his voice…..see why I was entranced?!

Sam Bradley: The Man You Need

The Brook Frasier/Sam Bradley December show at the El Rey has been on my mind all week. Especially the song ‘The Man You Need’ (and boy do I need him!). I love Sam’s voice in this song and if you missed the show please check out the video!!

Sam Bradley: Little Sister

A new song from Sam Bradley to brighten up your Monday which he wrote over the weekend with his mom Lee Lindsey while visiting Vancouver.
Enjoy!
