Hey saucy babes (this is currently my name for fans),
I have been busy with work but I wanted to let you know that I'm still making music. I've slowed down a bit to put more time into every track, so that they will be better than ever when they are released! As I've mentioned in the past, I am currently performing all aspects of creating every track, as I did previously on DIAMONDBACK Demo. I've learned a lot since then and it's a constant learning experience.
One of the things that I've learned is that most people don't appreciate the more toned down vocals I've experimented with on some tracks. I am generally very easy going and at least in my generation, I always perceived it as cool to be apathetic, but I've since decided that in music it can be too low energy for many tracks. I've adapted a new vocal style which I feel is more impassioned, as well as a bit edgy. I think you'll like it when I finish my upcoming EP.
It could be a few months before it's done. I haven't planned a long term time frame, I am just doing my best to make something that I feel is meaningful, rhythmic and danceable (I'm picking these words off the top of my head based on the musical direction I'm being drawn to). I really feel like my style is something new and that a lot of people will like it.
I haven't picked a name for the EP yet but the tracks I have in progress will make some people swoon. If you have a preference for a certain style or song, then feel free to send me a message through N1M or on other social media and I will be sure to consider making more music in a similar style. :)
Anyways, thanks so much for following! I am really appreciate you. SAGE SUEDE
I made a tumblr account and I followback! I'm really liking it so far. I expect it to be one of the best places for me to share my work. If you have a tumblr, then follow me for a followback: (expired link).
I've been spending a lot of time on making youtube videos lately. Subscribe to my channel, because they are entertaining: (expired link).
Lately, I've been more focused on finding ways to share my music, than I have been on making new tracks, but don't worry, I have some great stuff planned for upcoming songs. I have been busy mastering social media, which I also do professionally and will be learning more about music promotion. When I released DIAMONDBACK Demo, almost no one even heard it because I didn't have a big enough audience. I've been expanding my reach so that I'll have a better chance of getting noticed in the music industry.
I really appreciate all the support I've gotten on N1M. When I first got an account on here, I'd mostly received discouragement and negativity from people about my music. I'm happy that there are people out there that like what I'm doing and I hope you'll love my new music as I grow and improve.
Hi Everyone! Thanks so much for the love and support. I have three series on YouTube now, so I just wanted to give a quick breakdown:
1. If you aren't already subscribed to me on Youtube, I started a new series called Super Petty! It's a goofy super hero parody where I play the incredibly sassy main character. Actually, I am currently playing all of the characters, but that could change in the future. I hope you like it as much as I did making it.
2. I am also resuming Sage Money Magic, where I talk about different cultural practices worldwide to gain wealth.
3. If you've been following my dating advice series, I recently released the 6th episode and it's going strong. This series gives dating advice in an artistic format with electronic music.
Please subscribe to me on Youtube to see my videos! I also release music videos, live shows and more on my channel: (expired link)
I've been working on updating my website ((expired link)). It is now one continuous page, rather than my blog posts and a series of other pages. I haven't decided whether the blog posts are worth placing elsewhere and am currently happy with this new design because it is simple. You can still find out what tracks are about by searching for them on Google, but there aren't any links to song pages on the site at the moment.
I decided to change DIAMONDBACK to a demo for a number of reasons. The production quality wasn't good enough for an album and I didn't have a large enough following at the time of its release. I didn't have a producer and I did all of the audio editing myself. I also still have to learn about music promotion, which will undoubtedly be challenging and likely expensive. :/ It's so hard being a little guy when most musicians buy their way into the industry with producers and 10 songwriters on every album. So many "musicians" aren't musicians at all nowadays...
So, as far as music, I added a few new tracks on N1M. Un Photo de Toi Nu and Uh Huh are the most recent; they are both free downloads! I am trying to make sexier songs, because I think people will like it, but we'll see. I have a better idea of the direction my style is going after DIAMONDBACK Demo and won't be making acoustic songs anymore. Instead I'm doing more electro and alternative stuff. In "At Mo Power", I used rock vocals with screaming but I probably won't do much screaming in future tracks. We'll see I guess.
If you send me a message and let me know your favorite tracks, that will help me decide which direction to go in. I hope you like my stuff and I really appreciate you! <3
