South London singer-songwriter Paige Bea has unveiled her debut release, Pick Up Your Heart, embraced by producer/label boss KINDER’s synthesised trademark. Calling on childhood friend and film-maker Rosie Marks (Mount Kimbie, Burberry, AnOther Magazine) to shoot the accompanying video, Paige’s bold introduction comes with a collective vision and backing from some of the most creative and promising new minds.
Paige was classically trained on piano and voice for the first 18 years of her life, but after a brief stint studying opera in Dublin she became dissatisfied with the regimented nature of the classical world. Inspired by a late discovery of Amy Winehouse’s ‘Frank’ after watching Asif Kapadia’s documentary, she began channelling all her energy into songwriting. The debut single was written about ‘how much we complain about things we could really do something about’ and a conscious effort to be more selfless, following a funeral Paige sang at for someone she didn’t know very well. With a refreshing relatability to all that she creates, Paige Bea has carved out a space just for her.
