Saige ad­vice for mu­sic lovers

Cockburn Gazette - - STREET WATCH -

MAR­GARET River is the home of big waves, de­li­cious wine and mu­si­cian Duncan Saige.

Bet­ter known as Henry Clarke, the front­man and gui­tarist for in­die-surf-rock­ers Still­wa­ter Giants, Saige is cel­e­brat­ing the launch of his de­but EP I’m Saved with a string of WA per­for­mances, kick­ing off with a show at The Old Fel­low on Fri­day.

Saige said it might be a cliche but there was no bet­ter high than play­ing mu­sic.

“Whether I’m mad, sad, con­fused, alone – it al­ways cures me,” he said.

“There is al­ways some­thing new to cre­ate or dis­cover with mu­sic, even if you’re a novice or a pro.

“I think as I’m Saved was writ­ten and recorded a feel­ing of re­lief and sat­is­fac­tion arose be­cause I re­alised ‘Cool, I’m ac­tu­ally do­ing this solo thing’.

“There is one love song, a song com­ment­ing on re­la­tion­ship sep­a­ra­tions and one telling var­i­ous sto­ries, in­clud­ing when I got drunk and com­pletely lost in Kar­rakatta ceme­tery for hours.”

Duncan Saige will per­form at The Odd Fel­low on Septem­ber 1 from 8pm.

Tick­ets are $10 at the door.
