Liner Notes

Ben Sage

 

In Word and In Deed

 

In life, to be true in word and in deed is no mean task. It’s easy to talk big, yet act small. In music, it’s the same way. It’s easy to dream big. Yet, acting on your dream is the ticket, and being true to your roots while you’re getting there. My influences are folk, country, rock & roll, R&B, lots of books and movies, and, mostly, the people I’ve known in my life. It’s the stuff we’ve lived together that matters. As a result, everything you hear on this CD is true for me and, in some way no doubt, for you. Remember, all you can take with you is what you give away.
