Hi, I’m Sage Suede. This is my first blog post on mysoundposter.com! I have another blog on SageSuede.com and SageSuede.tumblr.com.
A little about me: I started my website in 2015 and released DIAMONDBACK Demo in 2017. DIAMONDBACK Demo was recorded in Northeastern’s Snell Library with an iPhone, while I attended classes full time. Later, I released a compilation of free tracks on my website called 2018 Freebies Bangers. It changes languages a few times. I’m a polyglot, so I change my mind a lot lol.
In the aftermath of being diagnosed with bipolar disorder and the end of a long-term relationship, I was on a manic tear and writing songs at lightning speed. At the time, my late-night escapades included a lot of flings and raging substance use — this was the only way I knew how to manage my symptoms at the time. I wasn’t exactly treating my bipolar disorder with traditional medicine or therapy.
This week’s featured artist fuvkdefinitely finds her music to be therapeutic.She started writing lyrics as a coping mechanism for depression and anxiety, and she hopes that people can find a sense of relatability through her words. Even if people can’t share her experiences, they probably can understand her sentiments in the music and lyrics and find solace in that kind of solidarity.
From time to time, you hear a song that is so perfect and commercially viable that you ask yourself, “how is this not a major record already?” We used this statement already for our artist of the week in early February Kris Angelis. But it is even more true for the mysterious girl making music as fuvk. Hopefully, featuring her here gets her the attention she deserves.
