Paige Nichols has been described as a “…Sara Bareilles-esque songwriter with a sound that is both soulful and spirited. Think Grace Potter with a healthy dose of Stevie Nicks.” Songwriter’s Monthly called her music, “uplifting, rousing, and empowering.”
A finalist for the American Songwriting Awards, Paige was recently featured performing “Burn” on Afterbuzz TV and BalconyTV. Even prior to its release, the single built buzz in various press outlets with features in Runway, Interfusion, and Cliché Magazines, as well as Examiner.com.
An only child who grew up in a quiet town in Ohio, Paige was always a creative spirit, often entertaining herself by making music. Classically trained, she began playing piano at age nine. Behind the keys, singing her own lyrics is where Paige is most at home. She has a talent for transforming her personal experiences and romantic disasters into charged anthems that genuinely resonate with her audience.
Paige’s passionate, raspy tone is the perfect complement to her soulful songwriting and sets her apart from cookie-cutter acts so prevalent in pop music today. But there was a time when Paige thought she might never sing again. She had moved to NYC to train at a conservatory and kick off her performing career. But something wasn’t right with her voice and it got to the point where she could barely speak, when she tried to sing her vocal chords weren’t vibrating correctly. Doctors told her that it was likely that she would never regain her full voice due to a severe form of acid reflux that had eroded her vocal chords. This simply was not a diagnosis that Paige could accept. After two years of doctors appointments, lifestyle changes, and intense vocal rehab, Paige found her voice again and it was better than ever.
Once she overcame her health issues, Paige conquered the NYC venue circuit performing shows at Rockwood Music Hall, The Bitter End, Caffe Vivaldi, and The Living Room among others. She began making trips to Los Angeles for writing sessions and gigs. Even though her heart was in New York, her gut was telling her to pack up and make the move to the west coast. Paige made the move to Los Angeles in 2010 and her career kicked into high gear. She worked with producer Mikal Blue (Colbie Caillat, One Republic, Carrie Underwood) to record her first EP, entitled LITTLE MEN. Paige made her Los Angeles 'gig debut' at Hotel Cafe and began playing shows all over town and immersing herself in the music community.
It turns out that her gut was right. Los Angeles has brought Paige’s music to a new level. She’s met amazing collaborators whose passion has driven her creativity to new heights. One notable example is the vocalist featured on her upcoming single, 'Burn,' Jacob Luttrell (writer of Flo Rida's and Enrique Iglesias' smash hits' Wild Ones and Tonight I'm Loving you, respectively.) Los Angeles, and Paige’s experiences here, have provided endless inspiration.
Paige is currently living, recording, and constantly performing in Nashville and Los Angeles but definitely has not forgotten her first love, New York City.
