Michigan pop country artist Sage Castleberry has a musical style that brings together both old and new. Born into a family of musicians, he was exposed to a variety of genres, ranging from 80s hair bands to country music and everything in between. Picking up the guitar at just 10 years old, Castleberry has spent years mastering his art and eventually playing with many talented friends and even his own father and drummer, Tim Castleberry. Now that the songwriter is creating more of his own music, he is discovering his individual sound and perfecting his artistry. Sage is often found playing solo in West Michigan Breweries and restaurants, planning for the upcoming festival and outdoor season ahead.
After the paramount success of his debut single “I Kinda Like It”, Castleberry then released a beautiful break up song called “Last Goodbye” followed by the idyllic and upbeat “Neverland”. Claiming his infectious pop country sound fueled by his diverse influences over the years, like Seaforth and Thomas Rhett, this artist displays an ever growing collection of music filled with great hooks and clever lyrics.
“Leave with me together” is the title of his just released and Debut EP. The EP consists of five singles with the highlighted single of the group being titled “Leave With Me Together”. The song was written about Sage’s Grandparents, Jerry and Donna Castleberry, who died literally hand in hand, an hour apart from complications from Covid 19. This single is a heart wrenching song to honor his beloved “Gram and Pop”. The lyrics tell the story of their humble home and family life, followed by the sentiment shared by every true love, to stay together, forever. The endearing lyrics are accompanied by a lovely melody, rich vocals and accents of steel guitar.
Garnering critical acclaim on release of his outstanding debut from the likes of Earmilk, Atwood Magazine, and Variance Magazine, Sage Castleberry is emerging exceptionally into the scene.
But we need to see some "I.D." first...
