In addition to her original music, Paige frequently lends supporting vocals to various Bay Area acts and showcases and sings with the popular Grateful Dead tribute, The Eleven, Bob Dylan/Neil Young tribute, Shakey Zimmerman, the retro/soul tribute, Paige & The Rage. She has shared the stage with members of Dead and Co., Further, Railroad Earth, Leftover Salmon, ALO, Fruition, Anders Osborne, RatDog, Tea Leaf Green, New Monsoon, Moon Alice, Tracorum, Front Country, Midnight North, and Dead Winter Carpenters, and has performed with Melissa Etheridge, moe., Joe Craven, Steve Poltz, Eric McFadden, Scott Pemberton, The Brother's Comatose, Shook Twins, and many more.

Cello Joe

Facebook / Bandcamp

CelloJoe is an anomaly in the world of cellists.

By combining cello with beatboxing, he has created a unique genre: classical hip hop.

Looped and layered beatboxing beats (vocal percussion) and funky cello form a rich soundscape for intelligent lyrics; CelloJoe spreads joy, laughter and consciousness raising vibrations.

CelloJoe's eclectic sound also incorporates the style of old time, jug band, blues and kids's music.

CelloJoe is the world's first long distance musical bike touring cellist. In 2007-2008, he rode with the pleasant revolution, a 5,000 mile bike tour from north san juan, california to palenque, chiapas, mexico. In 2009, he did a 500 mile bike tour through Utah with SHAKE YOUR PEACE!

Caitlin Jemma

Facebook / Instagram / Bandcamp

Caitlin Jemma is a singer-songwriter on the rise. Marked by country and delivered with soul, her songs are love notes offering encouragement to be your baddest self—in the pursuit of magic, adventure, and discovery.

Jemma’s genre-defying 4th studio album, Love Notes, is as bold as it is beautiful. Recorded and produced by Bart Budwig at the OK Theatre in Enterprise, Oregon, Love Notes sees Jemma stepping out into a brave new electric frontier, while retaining the intimacy of her first three albums.

​Raised in the high desert of Northern Nevada, Caitlin Jemma is a small town girl with a big country heart. Whether performing solo or with her band, The Goodness, Jemma attracts listeners into an intimate atmosphere where her sultry storytelling lives.
