MOJO compares Sage’s work to ”Billy Joel’s Gotham zing and brashness…spiked with neatly twisted takes on long-relationship dilemmas”. Tracks from the critically acclaimed album also appear in the current season of Lifetime TV’s #1 reality show, Dance Moms. The Deluxe album features 5 new tracks including new single "Coloring Book," and new art.
