Songs About Something: Old, New, Borrowed and Blue - Tunes in the Round - Host: Paige Clem
Americana singer-songwriter, 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. 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 Ethridge, moe., Joe Craven, Steve Poltz, Eric McFadden, Scott Pemberton, The Brother's Comatose, Shook Twins, and many more. She has served multiple stints as songwriter-in-residence at The Bazaar Café, hosts the monthly series "Songs About Something" at The Ivy Room in Albany, and has appeared at High Sierra Music Festival, DelFest, Hangtown Halloween Ball, Cuko Rakko Music Festival, and ULUV Music Day. She will be featured in the upcoming documentary, The Creative High, and is currently recording her debut solo album slated to be released in the fall of 2016.
