South London based Paige Bea has returned with her new single, Your Echo, premiering the release on BBC 1Xtra with Jamz Supernova and The Line Of Best Fit. With early support from the likes of CLASH and Hillydilly, her debut single, ‘Pick Up Your Heart’, quickly garnered fans in KCRW (Jason Kramer) and Amazing Radio (Charlie Ashcroft). Having surrounded herself with like-minded collaborators for her latest song, ‘Your Echo’ is smothered in the effortless soul we’ve come to expect from Paige, but underpinned by a new and decidedly darker aesthetic. This release marks the beginning of a new chapter for the singer-songwriter, carving out her own style with a refreshing relatability.
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.
