Traversing the spectrum of avant-pop, singer-songwriter Sean Nicholas Savage is renowned for his bittersweet ballads and beautifully raw live performances.
With a vocal style that’s both delicate and brave, full of energy and space, the sensitive Savage offers a new adventure with each subsequent record – averaging about one per year over the past decade. Through establishing an intimate poetic relationship with the listener, the Canadian Berliner has built up a cult following over the years.
He has also maintained strong ties with Arbutus Records, continuing with Life is Crazy in 2020: inspired by Broadway ballads and eschewing drums and bass guitar from the arrangements, the album is as sentimental as ever. Like a misty romantic drama that makes you long for a life you never lived, the LP expands a growing songbook packed with wonder, hope and roller-rink echoes.
