Sage Francis

Biography

Sage Francis has been escaping the real world through music (or so he thought) from a young age. He has since earned a couple of prestigious freestyle battle championships and a few poetry slam titles. His spoken word performances have been featured on ESPN and ABC X-Games commercials (which paid his rent for a year). He has also officially toured the US twice, once with Atmosphere, once with Anticon, and has been on the road booking one-off shows independently for a few years. To pay his rent he bootlegs his own CD-Rs and cassettes, selling thousands upon thousands of copies with minimal distribution and self-promotion.
