What inspires me?
"Before my car accident I used to say ...performing inspires my creativity, being immersed in the creative arts has me consistently reflecting on my craft and what I say and why. After my awakening I find that AND the deeper responsibly to see myself as a vessel. As equal as the trees and the water. I’m now inspired by life itself and every ever changing part of it all”
Call Me Unique - Sage - Youtube
“Being called "Unique" felt more fitting than ever questioning why "Natasha Brown" didn't. Being
raised in the hugely influential Handsworth scene in Birmingham meant there was always room to adapt and sit proud in fusing genres and styles. From soul and jazz to modern rap and hints of scatted notes and melody, I always found music to be my peace. I pride myself in being a Stat-trix: the passion to sing over various modern genres. I am predominantly soul / jazz but mixing this with acoustic simplicity and loop antics similar to Ed Sheeran, with the bubbling but honest serendipity of Ella Fitzgerald has allowed me to proudly claim this as "Unique". Also, who doesn't love a treble clef on cheek to identify how much the dedication towards music is a daily display? I guess that's why I call being "Unique" came as more than just a name but an experience to share and express to others. And from the streets to the stage, I have always aimed to always portray an honest and heartfelt performance. And who else do you know that has a phobia of sweets: "NOW THAT’S UNIQUE!"
