It’s not often that I get to break a brand new artist to this site, so today is a special day indeed. Meet the lovely Sage Redman, Seattlite by origin and UK resident for the interim. The illustrious Goldsmiths (which educated the likes of The xx and James Blake) is now home to the 19-year-old singer-songwriter.
“I Used To Go Out” is a single from 2011 which was featured in Esopus’ fall edition. Starting with a radio broadcast-sounding voice and sharply slow notes, Redman’s dark and visceral vocals mix with the convoluted, smoky melody. There’s a maturity in her voice, which is not surprising since she began writing music at age twelve.
What the future holds for Sage Redman is still to be written, but I’m sure she’s going to be on the up and up. With pipes sounding like Florence’s younger cousin, it’s really not hard to imagine.
