Alton's Sani Savage Drops New Music Vid
Sani Savage is taking Alton by storm. Dropping an album, a new music video, “2am,” and booking shows, teenage Savage has no plans of stopping soon. In fact, he’s just getting started. Savage can’t pinpoint a certain style for himself, but ranges from pop, R&B, hip-hop and alternative genres. You’ll catch yourself easily grooving to his music and digging his catchy beats.
Savage’s family is a big support for not only his sound, but also his merchandise too. His cousin is involved with the production of his songs with him.
“My cousin Dominick [Chavours]. He mixes and masters all my songs, making sure they are crisp with a clean sound,” Savage said. Chavours also has a brand called Phifteen, where all of Savage’s merch is made.
In addition, his family provided the structure for his musical career. He started at a young age watching his family freestyle. Savage was pretty much destined to start a musical career.
“I started freestyling at 5 years old, like just messing around because I saw my other family members do it,” he said.
He writes all his songs too. Starting with a beat and then finding a catchy sound, it takes off from there.
“I don’t have a ghostwriter. I feel like that’s the most unprofessional thing that I could ever do. I have a strong passion for music, so I like to tell my story not another person’s [story].”
Recently, his song “2am,” off the new album “Both Sides” dropped a music video. The video manipulates Savage’s body by duplicating him sitting or standing in different positions in several different frames. (Shown in image to the right.) This helps emulate how Savage feels out of body and confused in the song. The video uses a lot of special effects that brings an interesting and unique perspective, keeping viewers on their toes.
“When I recorded ‘2am’ it was a lot of things running through my head ... I was listening to beats at 2 a.m. and I found the beat at 2 a.m. exactly.”
Savage believes in his ability to succeed in a musical career and has plans to continue making music and playing local shows, including a show Aug. 31 at the Alton VFW 8 p.m. to midnight. Go see Savage and buy some merch from Phifteen. Tickets are available for $5 at Lovett’s Soul Food in Upper Alton.
