"Very few musicians can deliver songs that are emotionally vulnerable and simultaneously epic. Very few activists can help organize massive events like Ladyfest Dayton but also find time to tour and juggle multiple bands. Very few people can radiate boundless creativity and power, while still maintaining their inherently friendly, humble nature. Paige Beller captures all of these qualities and more in her songwriting, live performances, and attitude.
Deeply rooted in Dayton, OH’s eclectic music scene for well over a decade, she returns with her newest solo EP, Paige Beller…Space Cadet. Like the five of her other major releases, these songs sting you straight in the heart and rock your soul. Imagine drifting endlessly through outer space, with only a strange concoction of thoughts and feelings to entertain you. The live set is equally dynamic, as Beller deploys everything in her instrumental arsenal; from acoustic and electric guitars, to drum kits, a tiny piano, and of course, her iconic voice.

“'When she got in the studio and started singing, I was simply amazed. It’s hard to describe what it’s like to have songs that are just like words on paper and all of a sudden they jump out at you.

"Within many musicians there lies of number of creative forces that may oppose one another in terms of stylistics. In an increasingly particular marketplace, many artists struggle to refine their muse in order to best cater to finicky genre boundaries in an attempt to find a modicum of success.
