Album Stream – Sage Meadows “River Roads”

sage-meadowsInspired by the mountains, valleys, streams, and roads that the residents of rural Southern Oregon and Northern California pray for safe passage on as they try to scratch out livings in some of the most treacherous terrain in the Western United States, singer/songwriter Sage Meadows with aid from her band High Country serenade the rugged landscapes of the American West, while telling real stories of love, struggle, and loss in the new album River Roads.

Raised on Waylon Jennings and riverside gold claims in the tiny, isolated community of Forks of Salmon, California, Sage Meadows eventually made her way north of the California border where her memories manifested into an authentic country music narrative that has named her to many as the “Emmylou Harris of Southern Oregon.” From the immediately-identifiable honky tonk edge of songs like “Portland” and “Bluebird,” to the rockabilly influence of “Cousins,” to the more progressive approach of “Settle Down,” Sage Meadows satiates every segment of the country music palette with her sincere songwriting and a soaring voice.
