On Wednesday, January 30, 1988 Entertainment presents Sage The Gemini “West For The Winter” Tour 2019 with special guest Raymond McMahon.

At 6-feet 5-inches tall, Sage The Gemini quietly makes his presence known when he walks into a room with a confident smile. That same presence defines his music. The twenty-something Bay Area native stands out by not just writing, rapping and singing, but also personally producing, recording and even mixing the majority of his material.

“It’s like I’m a one-man band,” he grins. “I never wanted to be the guy who’s like, ‘I don’t have music out, because I don’t have anyone to record me or give me a beat.’ I’ve invested everything I can into this vision, so I can always create songs my way.”

Sage has a signature touch that has yielded an impressive string of smashes since he first emerged in 2013. Without traditional promotion, Sage’s self-produced breakout single “Gas Pedal” [feat. Iamsu!] went double-platinum and became his first Top 40 entry; receiving the remix treatment from none other than Justin Bieber.  He followed up with “Red Nose”, also self-produced, which went from a regional sensation into a national hit, earning a RIAA platinum certification.

 Remember Me, Sage’s debut album, earned critical acclaim and debuted in the Top 50 of Billboard’s Top 200. Next, he joined forces with Nick Jonas in 2015 for the hit “Good Thing”, which lit up Billboard’s “Hot 100” chart and notched over 17 million YouTube/VEVO views.  Realizing a lifelong dream, he teamed up with Flo Rida for the platinum “G.D.F.R.”—which went Top 10 in ten countries and racked up 250 million YouTube/VEVO views.  Along the way, he would tour with the likes of Wiz Khalifa, Jeezy, Rich Homie Quan, and Ty Dolla $ign, contribute two anthems to the #1 Furious 7 official soundtrack album, and garner praise from Complex, Noisey, The Fader, XXL, and more. Fresh Empire focused on him for the documentary “Sage The Gemini’s The Come Up” -- exploring his alcohol and tobacco-free lifestyle.

A partnership between his own Global Gemini label and Atlantic Records, sees “Now or Later” as its first release.  The slick and sugary refrain is rife with clever candy references.

“I just have a big imagination, period,” he goes on. “My songs are based on that. In my music, I’ll see color. It reminds me of candy, cars, or a girl. It just flowed on this one.”

As Sage puts it, he’s “bringing imagination back.” Pop culture could certainly use a healthy dose of fun, and he’s serious about that. “I’m like a big goofy kid. I love cartoons. Amazing World of Gumball, Family Guy, American Dad, and The Cleveland Show are some of my favorites. Nowadays, I like to keep it positive.”

That’s precisely why Sage’s music is going to resonate for a very long time to come.  Sage quite literally drives every element of his music. A multitalented artist, he’s an accomplished producer whose vision has fueled most of his biggest successes from inception to chart domination.

“I love the challenge of making catchy urban music and doing bigger stuff, because I want to be the biggest artist on the planet,” he adds.

Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 day of show.  Doors open at 7:00 pm and showtime is 8:00.
