Paige

Paige is an award-winning singer-songwriter from Auckland, who has won the world over with her honest and heartfelt songs.

In 2020, she released her EP, ALWAYS GROWING, which included the singles ‘Bloom’, ‘Yellow’, ‘Too Much To H8’ and ‘Waves’. The EP dominated the NZ Official Charts with ‘Waves’ hitting top 10 radio airplay in New Zealand. It helped to establish Paige as one of the country’s most exciting new artists and earned her two nominations at the 2020 Aotearoa Music Awards for ‘Pop Artist of the Year’ and ‘Breakthrough Artist’.

Paige followed up the success of her EP with the release of the single ‘Goodbye’, which reached #6 on the NZ radio chart, with playlisting on the country’s major commercial stations, ZM, More FM, The Edge and Mai FM. She also released two songs as part of the 2021 Waiata Anthems movement.

In 2021, Paige’s achievements were recognised when she won the award for ‘Best Maori Female Solo Artist’ at the Waiata Maori Music Awards.

Aside from clocking up tens of millions of streams on her own songs, Paige has also collaborated with fellow New Zealand acts such as Balu Brigada and JessB. She also featured on a re-work of Welsh singer-songwriter Violet Skies’ song ‘Lonely’ and in late 2021, Paige leant her voice to the song ‘Dawn’, which featured on the soundtrack of the Korean TV series ‘High Class’. In 2022, Paige teamed up with Norwegian pop artist Peder Elias for ‘When I’m Still Getting Over You’, which gained Paige a growing fanbase in South Korea.

Following this, Paige began teasing singles from her upcoming debut album, which will be released by Sony NZ and Arista. Singles released so far include ‘I Hope You Knew’, ‘Miles Away’ ft Ant Saunders, ‘Loyalty’, ‘California’ and ‘Dance With You’. Combined the songs have more than 2 million streams on Spotify alone. Fans can expect the full album in the coming months.

Paige has toured with some of the New Zealand’s biggest acts, such as Drax Project and Six60 and played at some of our biggest festivals, including R&V, Bay Dreams, Homegrown and Peachy Keen. She has also opened for international acts like George Ezra, Ruel , Holly Humberstone, grentperez and Nina Nesbitt. In 2021, she featured in the inaugural TUAWAHINE evening at The Civic. She recently played her first shows in Australia, when she supported the artist Odette at sold-out shows in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.
