Nairobi Live presents Sage, Jul. 18 2013 @ Tree House

Sage refers to herself as a musician, dreamer and lover. She is diverse and can write in almost any genre. She is a pianist and self-taught guitarist. She released her first single in 2011 titled “I don’t really want to” and in 2013 she released “So Alive” her second single featuring a Kenyan rapper Octopizzo. The song has gotten very good reviews.

Her songs revolve around love, both its presence and its absence. Her lyrics are easily relatable and her songs usually have a direct message.
She is inspired by life, love and all things musical. A very emotional writer, she is not afraid of taking risks and expressing raw emotion.

Venue: Tree House Club Nairobi
Date: July 18, 2013
Time: 8:30pm – Onwards
Entrance is free.
