|Spotlight on Lauren Paige
High School Senior and pop artist, Lauren Paige, is currently in the process of recording her original song, which speaks out about the pains related to caring about a love and always wanting to be with that person. “Blackout” was written by Paige with the help of her vocal coaches at Bristol Recording and Voice Studios.
“When writing the lyrics, Elle Wine, my artist development teacher, helped me. She taught me so much about songwriting. I also worked with my vocal coach, Lauren O’Keefe, who helped me come up with some of the melody.”
Paige explains that “Blackout” is a personal song about a past relationship with someone who still means a lot to her and remains a close friend. The title refers to “how I feel when I am not with him," something she feels that many girls will be able to relate to. She was inspired to write it because “he was a big part of my life and I was able to express my feelings through the lyrics.”
Page shareher connection to other artists in saying that her song “has a similar vibe to the song “Firework” by Katy Perry because they both have to do with getting rid of the darkness and seeing the light in someone again”. Paige also recorded “Silent Night” for Bristol’s holiday CD, which is up on iTunes, and hopes to take her new single to iTunes as well. “I aspire to have one of my singles on the top charts on iTunes.”
Born in Massachusetts and currently residing in Wellesley, Paige attends Wellesley High School. She has been training with Bristol for almost a year, but has been singing since she was seven years old, starting in her elementary school choir. This talented young lady told Bristol that not only can she sing, but she can play multiple instruments as well, including the violin, clarinet, and piano. Despite her talents with other instruments, Paige knew singing was her calling after her first solo during a concert in 8th grade.
“I remember someone coming up to me after the concert and telling me that my voice touched them and inspired them. Ever since then I knew that singing was something I wanted to do for the rest of my life.”
Growing up watching Destiny’s Child, Paige looks up to Beyonce. “My musical influence would definitely have to be Beyonce...She sings with amazing soul and lets out all of her emotion while she is performing. Every time I listen to “Halo” or her rendition of “Ave Maria," I get the chills.”
Paige hopes to have the same effect on her audience, she is so passionate when it comes to singing and she dreams of inspiring others through her music. When asked how to describe herself in three words she replied “passionate, dedicated, and soulful.” Although Beyonce is her favorite artist, Paige aspires to collaborate with Alicia Keys.
When asked about how she writes music, Paige likes to keep things simple. “Writing music doesn’t have to be so structured! Just have fun with it, that is when you write your best work.” She has so much gratitude for Bristol and the life-changing experience that training with them has produced.
“I would not be as successful as I am today without Bristol. I came into the studio with very little musical training and I have grown so much not only as a singer, but as a person. Bristol has pushed me to strive for my dreams.”
Paige has worked with a significant amount of Bristol’s staff, learning something from each of them, including owner Ric Poulin and vocal coaches April Forrest, Lauren O’Keefe, and Elle Wine. Knowing that Bristol has advanced her career, Paige recommends them to “any artist looking for training in pop music and also to people who are truly dedicated to singing and want to pursue singing in the future.”
