Gallon was born in New York, Long Island. He spent his formative years living
in a Com-
mune in Northern California. In 79' he and his Mother moved to Harlem
USA where his Mother
put me in a Catholic school... That didn't turn out
well. They then moved to Hempstead NY in
the spring of 79 where He grew up.
"I guess I have always been an artist, I
drew before I could write, acted before I could spell...
Although spelling is
still a challenge.
I Self published a book of poetry, Naked Under My Clothes
( I sold over 2,000 copies indepen-
dently), My debut CD Naked Under My Clothes was released in
2015 and we are developing
the one man stage performance due to premiere this
year, I paint ( water colors and acrylics)
and I am a photographer."
Everyone has challenges and dark times... Sage is no different. Sage spent 10
years living on
the streets, park benches, subway and train stations of NY, DC
an LA battling an addiction much
stronger that He, doing unspeakable things to
feed it, but Sage never begged and he never
robbed anyone. That experience has
taught Sage love (for those who save AND those who suf-
fer) strength, how to
see beauty in the ugly crevices and empathy, tools that are vital to his ap-
to Photography, Poetry and Art as well as how He lives & gives of his life.
I started shooting because I inherited a very expensive camera (2012) that I
didn't know how
to turn on, I fell in love with this art form instantly. I
have not attended any of the prestigious ﬁlm
schools or expensive classes, I'm
a kinda " hit that button and see what happens" kinda guy.
I'm an artist and the prospect of Student loans suck..."

Naked Under My Clothes was released May of 2015 and has Sage
ranked as one of the Top
5 Artists locally. NAKED UNDER MY CLOTHES is a heart retaking, erotic, sensual and
journey that takes the listener through childhood pains to addiction,
from love to self realization
and spiritual evolution. This is a CD like no
others before it. Sage is developing a one man show
with the same title, to be
released soon, in addition to The NAKED
UNDER MY CLOTHES An-
thology that has garnished Sage critical acclaim.
Can't say that I have won any awards, YET, but I do have the gift of life,
creating, sharing and loving what I do. Art, all forms of
art, is a spiritual experience a commu-
between Higher Power&artist, artist and audience and all back to the Higher
Power. I am
happy to share me with you and hope you enjoy. Peace" - SG
