Bio

Paige Black is a soulful pop singer songwriter born and raised in the hills of the Yarra Valley.
You'd find her breaking out into song and dance with her brothers and sisters in a household of harmonious chaos of 9.
Paige writes at the piano and let’s her rich, powerful voice tell her stories. Her bittersweet and candid storytelling takes listeners on a journey, narrating the places she’s been, the relationships she’s made and the difficulties we all face while navigating this life.
Paige Black was crowned the 2020 winner of the prestigious Darebin Songwriters’ Award by Judges Emma Donovan, Jess Ribeiro and Charles Jenkins with her song “Oceans Apart”.
Inspired by luminary performers such as Adele and Sara Bareilles and following in the footsteps of Australian artists like Missy Higgins and Meg Mac, Paige is in the midst of recording her debut album. Focussed on capturing the raw emotion within her voice, the album is set to pull on many heartstrings and inspire a new generation of singer-songwriters.

Some lovely change up moments in this track from Paige. It's the vocal that seals the deal of course.
