Jennifer Paige fan site

Jennifer Paige was born on September 3 1973 in Marietta, Georgia, U.S.A. Her love for singing was obvious since she was only 5. By the age of 8 she was singing duets with her brother and was giving shows in coffeehouses and restaurants. Her first piano lessons came at 10 and she started tasting rock and pop genres. Jennifer admits that her first influences came from Gospel. Her love for the arts brought her to the famous Cobb Country Center where she got individual training in dance, performing arts, voice, drama. Her studies helped her star raise.

After High School she started touring with a Top 40 band. When they got to Las Vegas, Jennifer Paige met actress/singer Crystal Bernand who convinced her to come to L.A. That was what Jen did. She came to L.A. in 1995. She hooked up with another band called Joe's Band. Her 3 years tour with Joe's Band was successful and the highlight of this period was the show they gave in Atlanta in August 1996 in front of 50000 (!!) crowd, during the Olympic Games. In 1997 she teamed with producer Andy Goldmark (who have worked with Elton John, Natalie Cole etc). Goldmark and Jen created a dance version of Aretha Franklin's "Chain of Fools". She attracted the German Indie Label Edel Records which was looking for a pop persona in order to strengthen their presence in America. When the President of Edel, Jonathan First, heard Jennifer's demo tape, he was so impressed that immediately flew to L.A. in order to sign her.
