||Paige Aufhammer CD (2006) |
Danny Campbell albums A crystalline voice and simple, swaying folk tunes are all Paige Aufhammer needs to win over listeners on her 2007 debut album. Like a sunlit summer field, her songs shimmer and warm the heart. Touches of violin (from Lovely Previn, Andre's daughter) and a capable rhythm section support Aufhammer's uplifting and hook-filled vision.
Paige Aufhammer has somehow placed her soul between the digital imprints of her music. Her voice is pure, vulnerable, smooth and warm. Her poetry is beyond her 21 years; compelling and thoughtful.
Paige's music and sound is not easily categorized. It is acoustically oriented with influences of folk, country, bluegrass, and jazz. All blended together to create a pleasing musical experience.
For Paige the world doesn't make sense unless she can respond somehow. Songwriting and performing are among Paige's many facets as an artist. She also paints, draws, sculpts, writes poetry, and makes jewelry. She is a quintessential artist through and through.
