SHAPES IN THE DARK
Trailblazing Singer Songwriter Sage Roadknight from Melbourne continues to uphold her reputation for outstanding songwriting with the release of Shapes in the Dark.
17 y/o Sage navigates complex musicality in the form of Future folk and is pioneering her own unique sound and evocative storytelling style.
SHAPES IN THE DARK is a song about the impact of Insomnia.
Musically, the song opens with a melody played on the Rhodes which moves between a 3/4 and 4/4 time signature, the songs textures
are soft and flowing, allowing the listener to immerse in that lucid dreaming feeling which exists at the parameters of reality.
The lyrics are sad and apologetic.
The song aligns with, and was inspired by artists like Beachhouse, Gorillaz, Phoebe Bridgers and Radiohead
Recently, Sage was a finalist in the Inaugural Environmental Music Prize alongside beloved Australian artists including King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, Jack River and Briggs.

Voices is the 3rd Single release from 16y/0 Sage Roadknight. It’s a song she wrote after attending the ‘School Strike for Climate rally's and it offers a critical view of the Australian government’s response to the students who were actively calling for a transformative and urgent climate response.
Voices is a powerful song with an important message, calling out those in charge, who value Capitalism over a sustainable future and dismiss those who dare to strive for a clean planet. This song is a call to action, as well as casting a light upon the toxicity of ageism as felt by every student rallying for Climate change.
This is a race and the time is NOW. #theyoutharerising

RELEASE INFORMATION September 21 2021
This is the second single from Sage Roadknight’s forthcoming debut album.
Werewolves is a stunning Indie Folk campfire gem. Weaving beautiful melodies and gently haunting those in its magical orbit.
Werewolves tells a story of the pack mentality of human beings, particularly in popular culture, and the never ending search for like minded individuals and how easily that can inspire or conspire love or tragedy, being pulled in different directions slowly and subtly down the rabbit hole only to awake one day to realise you are not the same person that you were before finding “your” people. The beguiling nature of charismatic people that can lead to reliance and loss of identity or freedom and self expression. In either case- Changed.
Werewolves-written and performed by Sage Roadknight
Produced and Recorded by Jacqueline Rae and Sage Roadknight
Extra Production, Mixed and Mastered by Shane Rae @ LIGHTHILL SOUND RECORDING VIC, AUSTRALIA.
WEREWOLVES- "It's dark and beckons you [to] come closer"

HERE ARE THE MOUNTAINS
Debut release for Award winning
16 year old Sage Roadknight.
In just two short years Sage has gone from busking on the streets of country Victoria, to winning a scholarship to take part in one of the UKs biggest music conference and performance events “FOCUS WALES” 2022. Sage is definitely one to watch!
Sage is currently in the studio working on her upcoming album and it’s with great excitement that her single Here are the Mountains is now available on all platforms.
Here are the Mountains is an eerie and lush pop folk song with beautiful and unique vocal stylings. The song engages you in an intriguing story and carries through with gorgeous textures and smooth production.
Sage has filmed, edited and performed in the film clip for “Here are the Mountains”, which accompanies the song down its winding track perfectly. From its curious beginning, you will be captivated by both the song and it’s video clip.
Sage is a student at Alice Miller, a highschool for the arts in the Macedon Ranges, run by Australian author John Marsden. Here she has the opportunities and support to develop her wide range of creative skills.
