Sean Nicholas Savage is driven by the magic of the voice. Originally hailing from Edmonton, Canada but now a fixture of the Montreal music scene, Savage uses his instrument to effortlessly express both the strength and fragility of the human experience. In his writing, Sean has the keen ability to articulate the intricate emotions of everyday life and romance with a measure of specificity and maturity uncommon to most singer-songwriters.
Savage's gift for bracing, timeless song craft and prowess as a philosopher reaches a new zenith with Bermuda Waterfall (released Arbutus Records 13th May 2014), which presents 12 tightly written pop songs packed with rich musical depths and devastating emotional gravity.
Inspired by and written on tour during 2013, Savage says of the album:
"bermuda waterfall= invisible action, unconscious fertilization,
the subconscious master plan continuum
much of the words to bermuda (which i feel are the center piece) were written whilest travelling between one place i loved and another place/people i loved, and trying to describe my most potent dreams related to my most potent life experiences.
there was a feeling of disappointment in communication with the people that i'm calling out to connect with through my performances and travels in the last year, a feeling of loneliness.
i had to have faith with the meanings of the poetry because more then ever it was lifted from my life often without being understood, only knowing that they were events, truths i admired, truthfully complex as anything so haunting can be interpreted in so many ways, like any dream funny or sexual, or horrifying. not so much knowing the reasons, but just the experiences as mysterious as they are to me. i promise that i was as straight forward with the words as possible in describing these nuances.
full of yin and yang, and just sitting back and taking a look at my life, something i'm happy with, and came naturally in the words of which i intended for the first time nothing. i'll have to wait a few years before i understand exactly whats going on in the record, in this time in my life, and i'm alright with that, cos i'm into mystery "
