With one listen to Paige Lewis’ newest album, One Good Day, you can hear the musical influences of John Mayer, The Beatles and Imogen Heap. Though you may also be tempted to make comparisons to Sheryl Crow and Alanis Morrissette, Paige has definitely forged her own unique style over a handful of years traveling the country writing songs and performing her music.
At only 27, Paige has criss-crossed the country performing at legendary venues like LA’s The Viper Room and played in the same lineups as Vertical Horizon, Katy Perry, P.O.D. and Switchfoot. Two of her songs landed in the Ridley Scott film Matchstick Men, starring Academy Award-winner Nicolas Cage. She also received an ASCAP songwriting award for penning CCM (Contemporary Christian Music) artist Rachael Lampa’s hit, I’m All Yours.
