31 songs in 31 days: Paige Blue’s January project

IMG_6231

I had the privilege of interviewing with the Argus Leader’s Jill Callison about my 31 day song writing project which took place during the month of January. Each day for 31 days straight I wrote a new song. I performed the songs on video and shared them daily on my YouTube page accompanied with a short vlog at the end, giving insight to the writing experience that day.

Here is an excerpt from the article:

Blue isn’t pigeonholing herself.

“Maybe before this project, I could have tried to put myself in a certain genre or category, but this project I wanted to stray away from that,” she said in a telephone interview from her home in Nashville. “My main goal is to write music for other people, for other artists. But to be flexible. Leave the style open ended and to be able to shift the genre.”

Each video ends with Blue telling a little bit about the song: its inspiration, its roots, its structure. Her goal of 31 songs in 31 days can be a bit intimidating, but generally she feels comfortable with the self-imposed pressure, she said.

“I have a pretty endless amount of ideas in my head,” Blue confessed.
