Bring my Diamondback

Sage Suede is 2 years old!

Yesterday marks the two year anniversary of the founding of this site. I released my first album DIAMONDBACK in May. You can find it through Deezer, Tidal, Amazon, Spotify, iTunes, Soundcloud and N1M. I am still the #1 indie artist on N1M in the Boston area, which is a big accomplishment for me.

As you probably know by now, I have done just about everything for Sage Suede myself. I have performed WordPress design, graphic design, social media marketing, audio and video editing… I wrote all of my songs, played guitar, sang vocals, created the beats on all of my tracks, etc. Music has always been a long term goal for me and I have been making decisions based around this pursuit since I was a kid. I have learned just about everything I need to know, except for how to get press for my album. This is the last step I need to take before getting consistent gigs and possibly transitioning into a more full-time role.

Sage Suede is 100% independent

I am still modeling a lot, but I’m not making any money on it. I am modeling runway at MassArt tomorrow, which should be fun and generate some cool photos. I enjoy modeling and am mostly using the images for exposure, on instagram, and to showcase my skills.

As a musician in Boston, I have not met any label representatives in person and am still learning the industry. On June 3rd, I have my first booking to play original music on WEMF Radio’s Social Conditioning and have been a regular in random discussions for the past few weeks. They call me true goth on the program and we talk about gothic ideas a lot. The program is based around pushing social boundaries, so it can be edgy in subject matter.

Bring my Diamondback

This song is loosely based on my life in March and April of this year, when I was getting a lot of indie modeling roles, as well as some acting. The lyrics are written this way intentionally, so as to bring more roles into my life. It’s like the idea in magic, where you would speak for an outcome, rather than purely based on the present. I say “8 times” because 8 is seen as a number of abundance and by repeating it, I am seeking to bring more abundance into my life. I think this is one of the best tracks on Diamondback. I know it is unconventional to include great tracks at the end of an album, but some of the best songs on Diamondback are at the end and it makes the album really dynamic and interesting.

Sage Suede – Bring my Diamondback lyrics

Finding time for relaxation
raising my vibration
a creative musician
With a touch of superstition

I’ll sing it so sweet
Huffing over the beat
I’m so experimental
On a whole new level

Haters are in denial
Some even jack my style
I have my way of thinking
And it’s more original

Talking like they know me
And I know they never will
I’m multi-metropolitan
Known all over the world

Bring my Diamondback
8 times my last casting…
Booking photoshoots each week
Doing some acting

Bring my Diamondback
8 times my last casting..
Been building my skills
For decades my passion

Finding time for relaxation
Raising my vibration
a creative musician
With a touch of superstition

I’ll sing it so sweet
Huffing over the beat
I’m so experimental
On a whole new level

Haters are in denial
Some even jack my style
I have my way of thinking
And it’s more original

Talking like they know me
And I know they never will
I’m multi-metropolitan
Known all over the world

Bring my Diamondback
8 times my last casting…
Booking photoshoots each week
Doing some acting

Bring my Diamondback
8 times my last casting..
Been building my skills
For decades my passion

Everyday’s a masquerade
I’ve seen enough of it…
My music is something new
Not so repetitive

I like my stuff a little rough
Edgy with deep bass
Take a risk, I’ll make you rich
Already making waves

Finding time for relaxation
raising my vibration
a creative musician
With a touch of superstition

I’ll sing it so sweet
Huffing over the beat
I’m so experimental
On a whole new level

Haters are in denial
Some even jack my style
I have my way of thinking
And it’s more original

Talking like they know me
And I know they never will
I’m multi-metropolitan
Known all over the world

Bring my Diamondback
8 times my last casting…
Booking photoshoots each week
Doing some acting

Bring my Diamondback
8 times my last casting…
My fans are really smart
They like my art
They have my heart
