First of, just want to thank you for participating in this edition of Infidel Interviews. Could you start off by giving a little information about you to the audience? Whatever you feel comfortable with, but name, age, and where you live would be pretty standard?
My name is Bryan Sage, im 36 years old and I live in Richmond, Virginia.
I was born in Paterson, New Jersey and moved to Virginia Beach at 8 years old... been there ever since.
How do you enjoy where you live? Is there a vibrant music community where you are? Would you say you find that your local scene influences your attitude and/or creativity?
I just moved to Richmond over 7 months ago and I love it. The music culture and scene is very diverse and there are usually tons of good artist that come perform in Richmond. My music is influenced by many different artists mostly artist from around the world, but there are alot of good artists in Richmond that definitely enjoy seeing play live when I can, hopefully I will even perform live or collaborate with them in time.
What does Severed Skies mean to you in 2018? And how does that compare to what the project meant to you when it was formed?
Severed Skies if my first solo project I ever done so I wasn't expecting much or anything big to come out of it....or to make it as far as it has by now. But I love music and writing so that's why I continue.
What do you see in the near, and far, future for your creative output?
As far as the future for my music, hopefully I can play or perform some live shows with some other great artists, collaborations, maybe soundtracks for compilations or movies.. I'm a huge horror, sci fi fan...lol.
Do you consider yourself to be part of a particular sound or scene? What is your thoughts on the nature of genres and styles, and do you have any particular ones which you find to your enjoyment more, listening and/or production-wise?
I think that Severed Skies is a compilation or fusion of alot of influences..... pretty much based on what i like listening to most of the time.... industrial, dark electro, dark ambient, EBM, and synthwave.... but when in the mood I do listen to other styles such as post punk, metal, classic rock, old school hip hop, and latin music.
