Paige Calico is nostalgia in its sweetest form. Her songs are a haunting blend of self-searching and wry wit in the face of life’s peaks and troughs. Calico grew up on a lake in rural New Jersey and eventually moved to Boston to attend Berklee College of Music. While there, she began her stint as one half of folk duo The Dwells. They self-released two records and spent a year touring across the country in a Chevy Coachman. Eventually the band parted ways, and simultaneously she began working alongside iconic music photographer Henry Diltz, leading to her move to the golden state of California.
Her debut solo EP, 2016’s Crying Diamonds, is made of of six delicately crafted songs combining dark, catchy folk with tones of choral pop and ethereal harmonies. Lead single “The Hard Way,” captures pristinely lush Americana—a gorgeous arrangement warped by just a touch of dirt and grit.
In late 2017, she hunkered down in the studio with Los Angeles producer Yay Blynn to shape three new singles. Her sultry, smoky voice demonstrates a maturity and ease, swirling around shimmering guitars and vintage synths. Her lyrics are humble and human, examining powerful notions of life, love, and uncertainty. That eternal search has lead Paige Calico here, and from this place her journey truly begins.
