NEWS: Sean Nicholas Savage releases new album Flamingo - OUT NOW!!

From the shangri-la of the valley of song, a classic yet current piece in the folk vein, Sean Nicholas Savage casts down his final work in a three release year (Won Ton Jaz, Trippple Midnight Karma). Flamingo plays at his calmest and most confident tempo; classic titles from a young singer-songwriter, driven to maturity by over experience. On the cassette, the old soul sings and dances (eyes closed) from his fatigued mind to yours. Opening with the reflective, tropical and topical Days Go By, Savage is lyrically uncertain about everything but the want for his lover and her wanting him. In a world of kissing, eyes, and heart songs, Chin Chin celebrates the every morning electric chin kiss – perhaps for the first time in music history! In My Chances, Savage easily compares the thrill and fear of new romance with life’s fleeting opportunities – insisting that he’s stealing his chances back, since they were his all along. With intimate singing, minimal drum rhythms and beautiful harmonies throughout; Flamingo is a folk album in spirit, with its relaxed, lyrically driven music. The perfect company for a thoughtful winter walk or an out the window cigarette break.

The rare mind, Sean Nicholas Savage, was noticeably artistic even in his youth; directing dramas with his tyco camera, and recording pop metal on mommies karaoke machine. These days Savage composes and releases about two albums a year. He’s a captivating live performer, and prolific producer. Savage is met nationwide and beyond with continuous rave review. He has been described as wearing the look, voice and song of a bird – all three attributes make him one of the most watchable, listenable, and interesting entertainers of tomorrow.

"Whether it be through a guileless lyric, a strangely familiar melody or even his infectious jollity, the bulgy-eyed Mile End bard and his increas­ingly diverse and eclectic songbook have a tendency to silence the snickers through sheer sincerity. That’s not to say the virtuous Savage, in his 25 years, has devised the formula for the perfect song. It’s just that despite being in the practice of writing intelligent, lyrical love ballads devoid of cynicism, Savage can’t help but inject his own extra-terrestrial touch along the way." -Montreal Mirror

"From his U.F.O. he sends ray beams of steel drums, lilting vocals and, of course, catchy lyrics that no one else could pull off (sex, sweet sex)." -Weird Canada

"Sean Nicholas Savage is the new 'King of Pop'. You just might not know it yet. (...) Sean Nicholas Savage is leading the brigade of a new wave of Canadian music." -London Fuse
