"Jamie’s lyrics are expertly crafted - sometimes with literary references - while the songs themselves seem to empathize with regular folks, connecting to such crucial commentary issues as the Occupy movement & Global Warming.”
- Bob Sherman, host of "Woody's Children", WFUV (NYC), May 2018
Jamie Gage has been writing songs, poems, and stories for over twenty-five years, but 'Earth Turns' is his first CD. Following the publication of an award-winning collection of poems in 2016, the songs on Earth Turns span socially-relevant themes - climate change ("The Water Is Rising"), hyper-capitalism & the Occupy Movement ("In The Park"), resource wars ("Old Man of the Mountain"), and more.
With comparisons to Leonard Cohen and Bruce Cockburn, Jamie's songs are becoming popular with well-known Americana and folk DJs in the U.S. and abroad for their sharp, sociopolitical lyrics and evocative, roots-driven sound. Inspired by recent climate events and protest actions like the Occupy Movement and the Keystone pipeline protests, the songs on "Earth Turns" are being developed into a feature-length play, which will be debuted in early 2019.
The father of three, Jamie has served in his day job in a variety of careers in management, IT, marketing, and copywriting. His hope is to connect his songs with listeners and other songwriters interested in confronting today’s common problems with a sense of compassion, tenacity and resolve.
