Take a little of Amy Winehouse’s soulful cool, mix in a bit of country spunk a la Carrie Underwood and you begin to approach the pop of Nashville singer-songwriter Kelly Paige.
The 22-year-old South Carolina native began playing guitar at 13. By 16, she was doing bar gigs and has since gone on to perform with country singers like Josh Turner and Trisha Yearwood.
Download “Hurt Like Me,” the lead single off Paige’s forthcoming debut album, above. In the video below, watch Paige’s live performance of breezy, optimistic tune “La Ti Da.”
Kelly Paige performs at The Bowery Electric tonight.
