SAGE ENGLISH BIOGRAPHY
Raised in Dutchess County, New York, born with the name Sage English, Sage has been doing music and dressing the part of a rapper from a very young age.
In 6th grade his music teacher challenged his students to write a rap to present to the class. Since then Sage fell in love with music and began to write outside of the class. In high school Sage released his first mixtape with his colleague. The reception wasn’t very good but that just pushed Sage to work harder. After a 3 year hiatus he released 3 more mixtapes his senior year. People started to take it a bit more serious and gain interest.
When Sage graduated he was heavily into photography and actually got accepted to college for the program. Photography eventually turned into videography and directing his own videos for his music.
In 2013 Sage moved to the Bronx and began to do videos full-time freelance. As time got on and his skills progressed Sage started to get bigger jobs. He was chosen for the Rolling Loud media team in 2015 and 2016. These jobs also led him to filming for artists such as: A$AP Ferg, Tsu Surf, Styles P, Pardison Fontaine, Ryan Leslie, YesJulz, and the last goes on.
Sage’s lifelong friends are also his managers and executive producers on his projects, RIAA Platinum and recent Grammy winning producers DJ SwanQo and Sean Island who have worked with Cardi B and many other heavy hitters. Sage’s sound is vibrant and diverse. Growing up you might hear him listening to Jay-Z then switch to John Mayer. Having such a wide knowledge of music really spills into the sound. Sage refuses to be put into one category of music. He could make festival banger that also appeals to the strip club if need be.
In 2016 Sage released a project “Don’t Call My Phone.” This album not only had some of his biggest songs to date, it also was the beginning of
his clothing line “DCMP.” What started as just a black long sleeve t-shirt packaged with the album, has become a full seasonal brand led by Sage.
Sage has always had a thing for art. Whether it be photo, music, video or fashion. If it’s a field where you can be creative, Sage probably has his hand in it.
