Born in San Diego, but raised in Houston, 9th Sage learned to appreciate the diversity in music throughout his life. From a young age, Sage has been in love with music and the way it makes him feel and get through life. Music is universal and Sage uses the connection we have to music to spread unity and his personal beliefs towards genuinely bringing people together to be free & build together. This allowed Sage to expand his mind and indulge in different sounds like soul, electronic, R&B, Hip-hop, world music, lo-fi, the list goes on.
Through music and online success, 9th has been featured on Saint Heron, Cozy Mag, First ear Radio, SoulEtiquette Radio, Future SNDS, Einhundert & more. His genuine relationships & talent even took him on his first tour in Asia in August 2017 with the Saturday Selects collective based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, as well as opening for Soulection Founder Joe Kay on his SOulection radio Tour in 2019. Sage heavily relies on his promise to be himself to always stay true to his passion & never give up, no matter how long the journey.
