During a recent interview, I had the pleasure of delving into the captivating musical journey of Paige Corwin.
Karly B.: Can you tell us more about your musical style and how you incorporate elements of pop, alt-pop and R&B?
Paige Corwin: I make the kind of music that I would want to listen to. I have influences that range from Celine Dion to Tate McRae. My music is a bit of a melting pot of everything around me, resulting in a fresh blend of pop and R&B.
Karly B.: How has music helped you cope with the complicated family relationships you’ve experienced in your life?
Paige Corwin: Oftentimes, when I go through personal valleys, I tend to let emotions build up inside of me. Music is a form of catharsis and has really helped me to heal and live a happy life.
Karly B.: Could you share with us a specific song or lyric that reflects your personal experiences with themes such as divorce and addiction?
Paige Corwin: “planes can only fly till they run out of fuel, and brains will always lie when you ask how they’re doing”. This is from a song of mine that is coming out soon. I drew from one of my earliest memories involving my family and the themes that you outlined in your question.
Karly B.: What inspired you to become a singer-songwriter?
Paige Corwin: I really love to do it and I want to do what I love in life.
Karly B.: How would you describe the vulnerability and maturity that is present in your lyrics and storytelling?
Paige Corwin: For the most part, my songs and lyrics are about my life and situations that I have lived through. It requires a lot of vulnerability to share my deepest sources of hurt with a room full of strangers, but that’s when music is most powerful.
Karly B.: Can you share a memorable moment when you realized that your music was connecting with listeners on a deep level?
Paige Corwin: “I’m not sure why but I feel your music speaks for those that won’t be heard. You’re the bright light on the dark side of the fence.” This was a message that I received from someone on Instagram. I occasionally get similar messages from people that I don’t know or don’t think about every day. Seeing that my work and words are affecting their lives really means something to me.
Karly B.: Could you tell us about a particularly meaningful or powerful story that you’ve set out to tell through your music?
Paige Corwin: I don’t necessarily have a narrative that I am trying to push. I write about my life and things that are happening around me daily. I write for myself and offer my stories, and hope there is something that listeners can take from them as well.
Karly B.: How do you feel about the attention your music has received from outlets like Earmilk and EUPHORIA Magazine? How has it impacted your career?
Paige Corwin: I am grateful for any and every publication, especially Earmilk and EUPHORIA magazine. I believe this is only the start for me and I’m excited to see what the future holds.
Karly B.: How do you handle the pressure and expectations that come with being a rising star in the music industry?
Paige Corwin: No one puts more pressure or expectations on me than I put on myself. I try to hold myself to a certain standard, and as long as I’m living up to that, then I feel I’m headed in the right direction. If I’m ever feeling stressed or overwhelmed, I try to practice good habits like hot yoga or HIIT workouts.
Karly B.: Looking forward, what are your goals and aspirations for your music career?
Paige Corwin: If your goals aren’t the moon, why aren’t they? I have really lofty ambitions in the back of my head, like selling out arenas and landing my records on the charts. I try to focus on the day-to-day things that I can do to get me there.
