Major: Peace Studies Year: 2016 Hometown: Brewster, New York

Teetering between North Salem and Brewster, New York and using the city to her advantage, Paige has grown up in a region where music stretches across all boarders. Completely un-classically trained in piano, she has been tickling the ivories for four years but has been singing along to the radio for as long as she can remember. Paige enjoys everything from Motown to Dubstep, The Killers to Snoop Dogg and is an avid concert/festival attendee but believes nothing is more fun than making music at home with friends. She is incredibly excited to write for Campus Vinyl BucknellU as a way to discuss new music and artists outside of mix-tape swapping.

 

If you could be one musician for a year (past or present) who would you be and why? 

Probably Florence Welch from Florence + the Machine; she's basically the closest thing to Mother Nature and would probably be real good at karaoke. I would love to just be able to belt out a song while pulling off a gigantic hat and flowing dress - that's talent.

If you were out on a romantic dinner and could only have one song playing the whole time, what would it be?

It would probably end up being a short dinner but I would have to go with Born to Die by Lana Del Rey. It's just got that "something" to it and I'd be able to listen to it on a loop for a good while.Paige 2

 

What music genre, artist, and/or group do you listen to when you need a good stress relief?

I always go to The Killers. To me, they're one of those bands that you know you love but then remember just how much you love them once you start to listen to their music again.

 

What’s the best concert you’ve ever been to?

The best concert was probably Fitz and the Tantrums at Firefly last year. I was able to be front and center and ended up getting a little too into "Money Grabber" and made it on the Jumbotron.

 

What was the first CD you ever bought?

This is embarrassing, it was A*Teens' Abba CD. I went through a big phase with that one that I'd prefer to forget about.
