If you are going to SXSW, RSVP To the "INDUSTRY SURVIVAL SKILLS 2001 PANEL" NOW!
Sage Francis is a one man army. Of course, he has had a team, labels, and associates to help him along his path, but he's always been ready and capable to do whatever needs to done on his own; books his own tours, do his own merch, start his own label, and of course record lots of great music!
In his 10+ years of releasing music Sage has worked with small indies (Anticon, Lex) to signing with Epitaph, as well as starting his own Strange Famous Records. He has also successfully managed his career on his own and continued to entertain all over the world with a active tour schedule*.
All of these experiences as a self-sufficient, resourceful, and cutting edge artist makes him a valuable asset on our "Industry Survival Skills Panel" who has lots of great advice & experiences to upcoming artists.
*Sage just recently announced he will no longer maintain his rigid
tour schedule in order to focus on other things; writing,
producing, recording, etc...
