The NYC-based singer-songwriter, and producer has just announced her new album CHOREOGRAPHIC due on May 20th. Sage, who studied at The School of American Ballet in her teens, delivers a musically ambitious and emotionally accessible tribute to her very first love: Dance. Fresh off the heels of her 16th song placement on Lifetime TV’s Dance Moms, Sage and her music have reached an ever-widening audience, amassing over 9.5 million views on YouTube.
BaebleMusic, who premiered the first single "Try Try Try" describes the playful, uptempo folk-pop track as "fueled by triumph and feminine resilience." Featuring Sage's signature clever lyrics, catchy harmonies and impressive guitar skills, the song has a tinge of country twang and more than a little bit of rock attitude.
