Diamond Reggae Seeing Into Peoples welcomes YOU gladly!
Give thanks to Diamond Reggae for giving I a spotlight.
For those who don’t know, Who is Sara Sage/The Unexpected One?
I am Sara SaGe Gentis. An artist, musician, singer /songwriter, producer, painter, photographer, designer, probiotics educator and entrepreneur. I am an activist and a rebel with a big heart.
How long have you been a musician, poetess and singer?
I was born into a family of music enthusiasts. My mother used to say that “I sang before I spoke”. I grew around my father playing acoustic guitar and singing folk tunes in the backyard. Everyone in the family dabbled at the piano but my sister was very accomplished in her studies of piano when we were young. From a child I played piano, mostly by ear and played the oboe for some years, there was a yuk allele in the house which was my grandfathers, a Leslie organ in the living room, flute, and accordion. I was involved in voice lessons in my young teens, and sang in competitive choirs growing up. I learned guitar on my father’s old 1963 Gibson and from there began writing songs of my own.
Your style is quite unique and classy, what or who inspires you?
Reality inspires me…
Politricks, love, struggle, blessings, accomplishments and disappointments.
activists inspire me…
Rebels with a cause. Outspoken people who are ready to stand up for what’s right.
great leaders inspire me. Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Haile Selassie I, Malcolm X, Nelson Mandela, Dalai Lama…to just name a few of our great leaders and thinkers.
Voices that have influenced me. The great Stevie Wonder, Peter Gabriel, Joni Mitchell, Tracy Chapman, Sade, Lionel Richie, Aretha Franklin, Bob Marley, The Last Poets, dead prez, Guru, Tupac, India Arie. No list could be long enough for the vocal artists that have inspired me. Great artists near and far. I know I missed someone real important to me.
I love music, I celebrate the diversity of music that is being made worldwide from soul, jazz, ballads, hip hop, deep house, reggae, tribal fusion to rnb. I feel honored to be a singer and player of instrument in this time.
Do you have a favorite color and how would you describe your vibration as a creative being?
As an artist I have come to appreciate all the shades and tones of the spectrum. I do however shine an electric blue and vibrate with the number seven as a creative being.
I am here to grow spiritually. Music is my life work. I want to be a voice to the voiceless. This isn’t a competition for me, this is life. I am here to heal and be healed through word, sound, power.
Any plans on doing any albums, if so when?
I have been producing my own album for some time now. It’s been a journey. I am producing the tracks, engineering, mixing, voicing. So it’s very close to completion and I’m really looking forward to sharing it with Jamaica and the world.
I do have some singles that can be heard at www.reverbnation.com/ladysage Show me your love, I produced in southern Cali and Walking on Air, I produced in Chicago.
What are your thoughts about the state of the world and your vision?
The state of the world?
I feel like there is eminent danger if we don’t wake up to the truth, wake up from the matrix, not just seek truth but once we find it, we must accept it and find solutions to move into harmony with the divine of the world, the Divine Designers plan.
I’m here to unlearn all the nonsense and remember the anciency and honor it to the greatest of my potential.
If you were able to change anything about the mind of humanity what would it be?
Love is the only solution.
Tell us something no one would believe about you?
I was very athletic growing up. I ran track, played soccer and volleyball. Love to swim and play basketball too…Go BULLS.
How do you overcome challenges?
Through faith in The Almighty, life giver, the great counselor, the divine designer, my comforter.
What are your thoughts about the Reggae music industry?
The reggae music industry is the healing vibration in the music industry as a whole. It’s some of the cleanest music out there. Yet, it’s also an industry that gets under marketed, undervalued, under publicized worldwide. Comparatively reggae is still considered a bit underground to the larger musical genres. Yet its impact on the world is undeniable. Big up all the reggae soldiers out on the frontline.
