LA Music Review | Art, stories and advice
Raw, catchy yet heartbreaking!
Sam Paige and her newest single “On Me” releases on December 9!
Sam Paige is a pop singer-songwriter from Edison, New Jersey who isn’t afraid to wear her heart on her sleeve. Being inspired by artists such as Taylor Swift and Kelly Clarkson, Paige strives to show complete vulnerability within her music touching on topics such as love, lust, insecurity, and overall confidence.
Beginning as a poet, she found inspiration to share her life struggles and feelings within her lyrics.
Previously, Sam trained with “The Voice” vocal coach Coreen Sheehan, and appeared on NBC with actor Corbin Bleu, at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, and at Carnegie Hall in New York City. Sam Paige states, “I feel music has healing powers, it helps people go through hard times, and it also can bring people together.”
When J4 pitched this song to my manager and I, I knew immediately I wanted to record this song. I am an advocate for self help and mental health, and the lyrics spoke to me. I really hope this song inspires other people to love themselves.
Sam Paige describes the trials she went through in her past relationship, voicing that blame for the other person’s mistakes was always put on her.
It was hard to even tell if we were meant to be
Don’t try to blame this all on my mama’s heart
Cause without her help you would never get this far
Now you lying, saying your in love
But everyone can see…
Try and blame another mistake on me
Sam Paige dubs her own voice, creating harmonies within her own tune. Her melancholy singing creates a calming feel to the passionate lyricism. She is portraying emotions of acceptance, to put any more energy into this situation would be a mistake.
