About Myopia:

Myopia is a bold departure for Sage, with a much stronger emphasis on her guitar playing over her usual piano palette, and inventive contributions by Hoboken-based guitarist James Mastro, along with her touring band The Sequins. Other guests on the album include drummer Doug Yowell (Joe Jackson, Duncan Sheik), keyboardist Rob Curto (Lila Downes), trumpeter Russ Johnson (Elvis Costello, Deborah Harry) and bassist Mike Visceglia (Suzanne Vega).

Produced by Sage and her longtime engineer John Shyloski, Myopia is the crystallization of countless studio hours and hundreds of shows in the U.S. and around the world. It’s also a new kind of album for Sage, who sings passionately about a “screen of judgment / in my face all the time” being lifted. It’s a declaration of self-assurance and vision that perhaps could only be made as disarmingly in the middle of a cultural crisis.

Sage explains: “This is a warm-weather record. These are songs about getting out there, thawing things out, and unearthing the truth. Sometimes you can’t do that in the dead of winter. But when the sun is shining, even the murkiest future appears hopeful.”
