Shaniah Paige began at a young age seizing every opportunity to perform, starting with the typical school musicals where she landed lead roles in Wizard of Oz and Annie. At 15, she caught the eye of Multi Platinum Music Producer Andrew Lane (High School Musical, Hannah Montana) and went to Los Angeles to write and record in his award winning studios.
Collaborating with Lane and KC Brown, their first song written together was about her hometown of Roseville, Illinois. This finely produced piece resulted in a prestigious nomination for a Hollywood Music in Media Award. Highly acclaimed music video director, Nayip Ramos directed her first music video, filmed in Roseville and was released on YouTube and Vevo in December of 2013. “Roseville” continues to climb in views in tandem with its release on iTunes.
Nashville was the obvious choice in Shaniah’s musical journey when her talent for songwriting became apparent. Coming to Nashville on a regular basis, she continued to hone her songwriting skills, working with notable songwriters, Greg Friia, Mary Danna and Ariel Orifici. These sessions resulted in her second iTunes release “With You”.
Shaniah’s association with Brendan Mayer began when Brendan was called in to lead the band supporting Shaniah’s live performances but quickly morphed into a writing partner and musical collaborator. With Brendan’s skyrocketing success as a solo artist and the newest member of Jimmy Buffett’s Coral Reefer Band, he spends his down time in Nashville working with Shaniah.
Her continuing work with music industry veterans Bekka Bramlett (Fleetwood Mac, Vince Gill, Faith Hill), Judy Rodman (Kacey Musgraves) and “ABC’s Nashville” acting coach and Broadway/TV actress, Bridget Berger keeps her very busy these days.
Her passion for songwriting coupled with her heart stopping live performances has made her one to watch for in the world of country music.
In May 2016 Shaniah Paige signed a management/recording contract with Heart Songs Corporation and will be releasing her first single with Heart Songs this fall. Shaniah is a regular guest host on Project Lips Radio Show and will be a Street Team Correspondent for our Project Lips Web Series.
