About Paige Clem
Perhaps it’s the combination of her insatiable musical curiosity and her formative years spent growing up in the South, but Paige Clem’s arrestingly direct lyrics and velvety, unaffected vocals exude that most elusive of musical qualities — Soul. With a natural gift for connecting with an audience, her roots-infused music is melodic and warm, yet packs a punch with tales of loss and love. Described by Jambase as a “charismatic and affable singer-songwriter…with a sultry, Jewel-reminiscent vocal quality,” her folk-soul-with-a-dash-of-sass sound draws on threads of blues and Americana with an honest and often clever accessibility that offers listeners a refreshing departure from the formulaic nature of so much indie rock these days.
San Francisco-based, Paige performs her original material as a solo artist and in Paige & The Clementines—an Americana music project that gathers a cast of talented players with Paige’s soulful songwriting prowess. When not performing her original material, Paige can be found singing as a member of the popular Grateful Dead tribute band, The Eleven, Bob Dylan and Neil Young tribute, Shakey Zimmerman, the retro/soul tribute, Paige & The Rage, and frequently lending supporting vocals to various Bay Area acts and showcases. She has shared the stage with countless bands and artists including members of Dead and Co., Further, Railroad Earth, Leftover Salmon, ALO, Fruition, Anders Osborne, RatDog, Achilles Wheel, Eric McFadden, Scott Pemberton, Tea Leaf Green, New Monsoon, Moon Alice, Tracorum, Front Country, Midnight North, Dead Winter Carpenters, Shook Twins, Doobie Decibel System, and has performed with Melissa Ethridge, moe., Joe Craven, Steve Poltz, The Brother’s Comatose, Jerry Hannan, James Nash, Mark Karan, Pat Nevins, Victoria George, Essence, Sweet Blossom, Dredgetown, Sycamore Slough String Band, American Jubilee, China Cats, Chum, The Dedicated Maniacs and more.
Paige has served multiple stints as songwriter-in-residency at The Bazaar Cafe and is the creator, curator and host of the popular “Songs About Something: Old, New, Borrowed and Blue Tunes in the Round”—an ongoing monthly songwriters-in-the-round series held at Albany’s Ivy Room. Her bluesy yet melodic approach to song has been shared from the stage at High Sierra Music Festival, DelFest, Hangtown Halloween Ball, Cuko Rakko Music Festival, ULUV Music Day and many of the Bay Area’s most popular haunts, including The Great American Music Hall, Terrapin Crossroads, Boom Boom Room, Freight & Salvage, Sweetwater Music Hall, Ashkenaz and more.
Paige will be featured in the upcoming documentary, The Creative High, and is currently recording her debut solo album slated to be released in the spring of 2017.
