Ethereal cellist and singer-songwriter Sage has recently announced her debut single From Dust, a gorgeous, introspective meander made especially for soulmates.  From Dust is the first taste of Sage’s upcoming EP Tethered, a collection of gentle yet striking songs for cleansing the soul, set for release on February 27

For fans of Laura Marling and classic folk auteur Joni Mitchell, From Dust is a soft bed to fall into after a long hard day.  Enchanting and delicate, this song allows space for Sage’s elegant vocal to feature front and centre, while her adroit cello playing provides a warm glow that eminates throughout.  Speaking on the inspiration behind From Dust, Sage says, “This song is about soulmates, innocence, memories, and endless love.  It’s one of those miracle songs that was written in no time at all by myself in my run-down apartment.  When I sing this song, I think about the movie Stardust.  At the end of the film the two star-crossed lovers, having lived a full and beautiful life together, pass away and become stars in the sky, their love living on forever and shining over everyone.  There’s longing involved, but also hope.”

Tethered is an exquisite collection of songs from this inimitable artist.  Like a nostalgic fairytale, these songs unfurl themselves flawlessly; from the pizzicato of All My Lost Loves, to the sweet, strings-infused pop of The Loveliest Thing, Tethered is a glorious, sun-soaked triumph of arresting folk-pop.  Reflecting on the concept behind the songs on Tethered, Sage explains, “This EP was a cleansing process of feelings I wanted to get out of my system through music.  The concept behind Tethered was to write a collection of songs about things that can hold us back and keep us tethered to our place in life, in the hopes of understanding these experiences and learning to let go.  Feeling stuck is a terrible thing so I always try to change and improve.”
