“The most creative stuff I’ve ever heard. The music moves me in fits and starts…pushes me against the wall (rather brutally at times) and then licks me like a good cat should.”
-John Hampton (White Stripes, Replacements, Jimmy Vaughn, The Cramps)
Daniel Sage is a rock-n-roll pioneer, born in the Piedmont Triad, North Carolina, USA, Milky Way Galaxy. Influenced by his childhood idols Jimi Hendrix, Neil Young, and Kurt Cobain, Sage’s style is strikingly vibrant. A history project, an apathy for public school and an argument with mom allowed Daniel to be released from the traditional education system at the ripe old age of 12. Since then, Sage has travelled the world to develop his unique sound.
His first LP Astronaut (2010) caught the attention of producer John Hampton (White Stripes, Replacements, Stevie Ray Vaughn) at Ardent Studios in Memphis TN, teaming up with him to produce Wildlife (2014).
After releasing his second album, Sage found himself roaming the US, writing songs in the wilderness for his third album Triad (2018) . Inspired by his complicated relationship with his home turf and a near death experience, Triad dissects love, society and challenging yourself, all packed in 9 kick-ass tracks.
Following up on his second single off Triad, Daniel Sage says: “Astroturf is synthetic grass, Astral projection is an out of body experience. In what ways are the artificial things in our life preventing or enabling us from having the best experience? Strut your ass to find out.”
