About Paige

The story of a girl left behind by the Jonas Brothers


Hi, I’m Paige. I’m 25 years old and I’m a blogger/creator from Toronto. I run social media for music companies (like labels & festivals) across Canada and also spearhead operations over at my music collective website, At The Barricade. Before that, I worked in marketing at a major record label running point for artists like Halsey.

I started this space to be a music blog exclusively, talking about what to listen to and sharing my knowledge of the industry. As time went on, I started to feel like I was limiting myself so *ta dah*, I opened the site up to posting anything that would interest a music fan. Festival fashion? How to get an internship? Cool homewares for music lovers? It now all fits into the PaigeBackstage bubble.

PaigeBackstage is a music lifestyle blog dedicated to supporting bands & music fans alike. With a mix of recommendations, contests, playlists, music industry education, and lifestyle content… there’s a little something here for everybody. The main goal is for this to be a positive space for all fans to hang out without worrying about judgement or negativity. The blog has an alter-ego on YouTube, which is really the same ego but with more high pitched screaming.

You can send music recommendations/say hello via email or send love letters via PO Box:
