An international favorite, Sage was recently praised by Maverick for her "very impressive body of art that displays her musical ability, expert songwriting and with tremendous vocals.", the Irish Post wrote "...wonderful way with words...very creative and emotional." Americana UK said:"This is music with real drama attached, that sets out to capture an elusive, mysterious atmosphere and that has a real emotional gravity", and Billboard wrote "Her keen, ironic sense of humor and quirky sense of the profound is what makes her special as a songwriter".
