New Music Video: Soft Serve Chillin

I created this music video with Travis Ward on camera and everyone’s fav belly dancer, Devin Alfather. The concept was created by me, in order to be fun, sensual and combat serious societal issues. As an egalitarian, I chose to use a storied metaphor to create discussion around societal issues, such as bisexual visibility, sexual discrimination and gender roles. Sexual discrimination causes queers to be treated as inhuman and this is represented symbolically through my transformation into a cat. This can also be interpreted as a transference of gender roles.

This video is not meant to be illuminati or whatever. We recorded some scenes with a cage and a red X, but that was for the visual range of color and to provide an intriguing ending, in order to provoke thought. The song lyrics are spiritually uplifting and about romance. We filmed most of the outro scenes at a popular club in Austin and their dungeon seemed appropriate for the ending. We also visited Amy’s ice cream, did a sexy photoshoot sequence and danced at the club. You’ll even see my cats in the video :).

Sage Suede – Soft Serve Chillin Lyrics

When we’re done with kissin
I’m just here to listen
wanna stroke your hair
and treat you like my kitten

Wanna spoon with me
wanna feel me rhthm
with my arms around you
soft serve chillin

when we’re done with kissin
I’m just here to listen
wanna lose the time
with you in heaven

come dance with me
and feel the passion
stretched on the beat with the waves crashin

aight

you want me to be your boyfriend
we can talk in tongues
when we feel the love

I’m swervin onto your block
to take you out
my mission

ain’t no other
that I’ll be kissin
my mission
I seen it in a vision

(Gotta gotta love you like)x2
no other has been given))x2

My mission
I’ve seen you in a vision
the mood feels right
I’ll be your guy
deep feelin
my realest

The mood feels right
I’ll be your guy
deep feelin
my realest

When we’re done with kissin
I’m just here to listen
wanna stroke your hair
and treat you like my kitten

Wanna spoon with me
wanna feel me rhthm
with my arms around you
soft serve chillin

when we’re done with kissin
I’m just here to listen
wanna lose the time
with you in heaven

come dance with me
and feel the passion
stretched on the beat with the waves crashin

ahh yeah you bring me so much passion
(Gotta gotta love you like)x2
no other has been given))x2

Deep feelin
my realest

“I chose to reverse gender roles, with the transference of the ears and some of my outfits. Although the beginning of the video starts as a campy romance, the ending is symbolic of homophobia. There are also conceptual elements regarding patriarchy. Sexual discrimination does cause some to be treated as inhuman and this video also has bisexual visibility. Devin did amazing in this role and we kept it fun while breaking down societal barriers to human rights.”

Un Photo de Toi Nu

Recap for new visitors: I started my website in 2015 and released DIAMONDBACK Demo in 2017. DIAMONDBACK Demo was recorded in Northeastern’s Snell Library and with an iPhone, while I attended classes full time. Later, I released a compilation of free tracks on my website called 2018 Freebies Bangers. It changes languages a few times. I’m a polyglot, so I change my mind a lot lol.

I released RAWR mixtape for streaming in January 2019 and I have a great EP coming in May (but more on that later).

Un Photo de Toi Nu is track #4 on RAWR – pick your streaming for the full mixtape: https://artist.landr.com/music/628810098156.

“I didn’t speak French when I wrote Un Photo de Toi Nu”

I wanted to talk about this song because I think it’s fun and quirky. I didn’t spend too much time on it, so it has a carefree vibe to it. I used a drum machine that hyped that low sounds, then I used my microkorg for higher pitches. I also recorded guitar. I want my music to have it’s own unique sound and as a result, I have trouble keeping my sound in one genre lol.

Lately, I have been forming my sound. ElectroPapi EP will be a great
representation of that and I love hearing the more experimental electro alt pop on RAWR mixtape.

“So how did you write it?”

I didn’t speak French back then, but I understood most of written French from romance languages. I was talking to a follower on Twitter in France and they kept asking me for nudes. I said no, because my artistry is too important for me to be doing that, but they still insisted.

I didn’t want them to be upset and I liked the way some of their French messages sounded. “This is kind of cute,” I thought, “I could make this a song.” I added a few lines with Google Translate and now that I am learning a little French from a Scottish podcast, I feel a little embarrassed with just a tad bit of the pronunciation (mostly just when I say “le”). My French followers seem to enjoy this song though. It is quirky and has that je ne sais pas.

As a polyglot, I find it very interesting that the lyrics of Un Photo de Toi Nu sound cute in French, but are more practical with an English connotation. You need look no further than the title of the song than to understand this.

Un Photo de Toi Nu = Nudes (nude photos)

So like it sounds way cuter in French to ask someone for nudes. Next time you hit up your crush, try sending them this song 😉

2018 Freebies & Bangers

A picture of me with my friend Simone Riviera

Takin a Sip

You’ll like the smooth synths and the deep bass in ElectroPapi EP. My vocals have improved very noticeably.
On DIAMONDBACK Demo, my vocal style had a lot of variation and my rhythms were mostly metered. I did use off-beat and syncopated rhythms on DIAMONDBACK Demo, but the vocals were intended to be more apathetic than ElectroPapi EP.

I’ve learned a lot more about myself and my limitations. I’ve also been surprised and pleased with how well my musical style is developing.

I’ve been working on Takin a Sip all weekend; it will likely be the third track on ElectroPapi EP.
So far, it seems like the EP will be in English, but I am a polyglot so depends on how my brain is thinking.

Sage Suede is a Musician & Model in Austin, Texas

I live in Austin, TX. I have performed more than a few shows, on radio and live, but most of them were in Boston, MA. I moved back to Austin, TX after college without a car and didn’t have transportation for a few months, so I couldn’t continue performing. During that period of time, I decided that I could make higher quality tracks and started ElectroPapi EP in November, 2017. I’m giving everything extra time to get done, since I’m held to the standard of “artists” with 50 people on an album.

That being said, I will be performing again in the next few months. I just want to finish up the EP first, because those tracks are so much better. I really want at least 2 backup dancers, and you can contact me to apply.

I have practiced my club-style dance hybrid thing a lot, so I am better than I used to be. I’m not a pro dancer, but I have done martial arts for years (which is still a form of choreo), ballroom dance and musical theatre. It’s not all relevant but the way my brain remembers the movements, it comes together with a flow to it. I mostly draw from elements of club dancing and try to incorporate other movements. I would want to work with dancers on routines and would also give them independence for soloing on some songs.

I’m uploading DIAMONDBACK Demo (Re-Mastered) to Stores

I had distribution for DIAMONDBACK Demo, but I released all of the tracks un-mastered in May 2017. This was really just because I couldn’t afford mastering and hadn’t found a solution yet. It also didn’t help that I had no idea what I was doing. I’ve made beats since I was in middle school, so it’s been a long time but there are so many audio concepts that I’ve improved since then. I’ve learned a ton about songwriting and my vocal inflection is world’s better. I am so excited to share ElectroPapi EP with y’all!

I will be uploading the re-mastered version of DIAMONDBACK Demo to sites like iTunes, Amazon MP3, Tidal, Deezer, Spotify and maybe a few others I’m forgetting. I want the mastered version to be available for streaming because I realize that it is more important than selling albums nowadays. I will still offer it on this site for cheaper, because when you buy my music through any other store, I get a small fraction of the full price. I would rather offer it a little cheaper for people on my site, because then I only lose money to taxes. I may need to raise the price a dollar or 2, but only because I have to pay for the song masters to export as WAVs and I can’t upload MP3s for distribution.

That’s All For Now Folks

I am still working on my logo re-design and things are coming together nicely. I am providing the designer with too much feedback and we are constantly re-making the concept.
I’ve improved a lot at coding too and recently made a lot of stylistic, CSS updates to the website. Leave a comment and let me know how you like my site.

I’m doing my best to get y’all new products soon. After I complete the new logo, I’ll just need to speak with suppliers. Then I’ll be able to put more on the store!
