Shaniah Paige caught music fever at a young age, a life path prophesized by her parents who named her after Country music star Shania Twain. Seizing every opportunity to perform in local theater productions in her home town of Monmouth, IL, Shaniah fortified her passion and, at the age of 15, began working with Multi-Platinum Music Producer Andrew Lane (High School Musical, Hannah Montana), who helmed her first few singles.
In short order, she had put a band together and canvased the Illinois/Iowa region along with South East performances in Nashville. She began returning to Nashville on a regular basis, honing her songwriting skills with industry heavyweights and recording her new country-inspired pop with multi-Grammy award winner Larry Beaird at Beaird Music Group.
Her relatable and catchy songwriting, coupled with a nuanced live performance, quickly made her one to watch for in the world of country pop. In May 2016, Shaniah was named Fresh New Face of Country Music by Renegade Radio Nashville, performed at CMA Fest and opened for Stella Parton at BB Kings Nashville. Later that year she signed a management/recording contract with Heart Songs Records. While all this was falling into place, Shaniah became a full-time college student. She tackled the workload with her signature exuberance, balancing her studies with tours of other colleges, theaters and vineyards, opening for national acts such as Granger Smith, Love and Theft, Walker McGuire, and Morgan Wallen.
Shaniah’s newest single “Mysterious Boy” was written in the wake of her transition to college life. “When I began classes, there was a boy I instantly had a crush on” she coyly admits. “I could not figure out what his name was for the longest time, and it was driving me crazy!” She channeled her insistence on unmasking this mysterious boy into a bubbly tongue-in-cheek single, indicative of Paige’s down to earth accessibility and a clear signpost in her transition from Country into the world of Teen Pop.
“Mysterious Boy” accompanying music video is due out November 14th
