Ben Sage is a gifted singer-songwriter with roots that run deep in country, folk, blues and rock & roll.


He is currently performing in support of the release of his all-new Americana album, Plenty of Gold, on his Cool Dove label.


Here's what Illinois Entertainer (IE), the state's leading music monthly, has to say about Ben's Plenty of Gold album:


Though he blends gospel, country, and R&B, Ben Sage is not your traditional Americana folk artist. Over a sprawling 17 tracks, Sage mingles woodsy love songs (“Dialin’ For My Darlin’”) and religious praises (“With God”) with quirky, country-inflected folk (“You Make Me Feel Like John Wayne”) and poppy acoustic anthems (“Sun Power Me”). There’s a light-hearted irreverence that borders on parody at times, but there’s also genuinely skilled musicianship and colorful stories sprinkled throughout Plenty Of Gold. (www.lovebensage.com)
