The award-winning singer/songwriter has been compared to Eartha Kitt, Dinah Washington, Pearl Bailey, Corinne Bailey-Rae, Laura Nyro, and Janis Joplin. Her latest CD is “NOLA Calling.”

Space Coast Living Magazine named Gage the ”Best Musician in Brevard County” in 2008, and she has a devoted and growing international following that labels themselves as “Sybilized.” Gage is the recipient of three ASCAP awards for Excellence in Performance and Songwriting, 2008-2010.

She has been invited to perform at the New Smyrna Beach Jazz Festival  four times and has performed for NBA player Vince Carter, a Daytona Beach native.

Gage currently performs at jazz spots in Florida and New York City along with a weekly packed-house performance at Heidi’s Jazz Club in Cocoa where she has been a resident since 2009.

“Sybil Gage is a superstar in our own backyard, bringing us back to a time when jazz and blues reigned,” says Joel Greenblatt, president of the Space Coast Jazz Society.
