Crumby Art

1 crumb pedalstrike

This portrait was made entirely with bread crumbs. The person who made it calls himself Pedalstrike. His work is amazing. You can read his explanation in regard to this Uncle Sage portrait here. Part of that writeup reminded me of a poem I included in my Personal Journals booklet by Bill MacMillan called “The World’s Worst Rapper.” I’ll leave this here and wish Pedalstrike the very best in all future endeavors: the world’s worst rapper is a devotee of the old school understands the importance of knowing your roots is the neighborhood historian hip hop he has memorized the soundtracks …

Are You Adult Enough to Use a Flag as a Cape?

1 flagpole crop square

Apparently, capes were too soon for Madonna. I’ve been rocking this SFR flag as a cape for over 10 years though. LIKE A CAPE PRO. No accidents, no injuries, no diseases, nothing. It just provides the super human strength needed to keep my indie grind going. Oh, and they’re finally available to the public HERE: www.tinyurl.com/SFRflagcape My SFR flag is probably the most requested item at shows. Some people offer to pay for it, but usually they’re just like, “Gimme that cape, man. PLEEEEEAAAASE!” Well, I couldn’t sell it or give it away as only one was made. And it’s for me. However, after …

1 space vid crop

Thanks to the wonderful work of morgans brother, here is the new lyric video for The Place She Feared Most from my Copper Gone album: www.tinyurl.com/PlaceSheFearedMost By this point I hoped to post a full account of everything that happened in the past 6 months during the Copper Gone World Tour, but that’s going to have to wait for another time. For now I just want to thank to everyone who joined me on my road to recover. The agents, promoters, journalist, tour mates, and the fans who came out to help make this one of the most successful tours …

RIP Ikey Owens

1 ikey 2

The world lost an incredible talent and a genuinely good person today. Point blank. He was also the most badass keyboardist I’ve ever seen perform live. To see Ikey Owens do his thing as part of my own set for 30+ shows on the Li(f)e Tour was a true privilege. Powerful, inspiring, electric…awesome. It was on that tour when I lost my dad actually, and the whole band was not only understanding of my situation but very comforting. As a shit-twist of coincidence would have it, we are very close to the 4 year anniversary of Eyedea’s sudden passing. It’s …

“Make Em Purr” video, lyrics, backstory

1 isolation

VIDEO: http://youtu.be/bjxHy8WTgTs Video Director: Wasaru. 
Art Director: Jebedaï Couture Special thanks to Jim Foltice for help with the treatment. “Make Em Purr” has been one of the most discussed songs from the Copper Gone album, and since the most popular question I get asked on tour is, “How’s your cat, man?” — I figured it would be a good time to give you the song’s backstory. “Make Em Purr” didn’t even exist until a day before my final recording session. In fact, I considered the whole album to be finished save for one legal issue I had with “Thank You.” …

The Interview Invasion, 2014

1 head shot crop

I’ve done a slew of interviews in 2014, all of which surfaced around the same time. Here’s the comprehensive breakdown… This is an interview I did with BeeShine on the very first day of the Copper Gone Tour. It’s probably my favorite video interview that I’ve done: http://youtu.be/SmdzjDfhOpc Here’s a video interview I did in Pittsburgh on the day of Copper Gone‘s release: http://youtu.be/7lJ9zlmwvC8 Here are a couple podcasts I participated in recently. It’s a lot of talking. If you’re bored or working around the house, feel free to play them while you shuffle about: Shots Fired: https://soundcloud.com/shots-fired-podcast/episode-77-sage-francis Chrome Bills …

Phoenix Cover Story – “To Hell and Back”

1 phoenix

It’s been a long time since I got any significant coverage from local media. Big thanks to Chris Conti for getting me the cover story: http://providence.thephoenix.com/music/158805-to-hell-and-back/ Here’s a bit of an aside that I wrote on my Facebook page, June 26th: It feels a bit heavy handed to call what I’ve gone through “to hell and back,” especially when my situation was largely self-inflicted. In my head. And it’s not something people could help me with. I choose how I live. There many people going through much worse in their daily lives without any say in the matter. That’s not …
