About this project
I am Jennifer Paige. I’m best known for the hit songs “Crush” and “Stranded” and, depending where you live in the world, many other catchy pop tunes. I'm so happy to announce this NEW ALBUM in the works! I can't wait to collaborate with YOU on what I believe will be the best album of my career, Daydreamer.
For the last five years, I've gone rogue - indie, if you will. I’ve made music for tv shows and ad campaigns, movie trailers and trance records. I've recorded with other artists and finally made the Christmas album I've always wanted to make. I’ve enjoyed every minute of it - good & bad, feast & famine - because the creative process is ALIVE & WELL as long as I’m making music that people feel. This will be my first full-length solo album in eight years (not counting Holiday) - EIGHT!! I need to fix this, pronto.
I’m so grateful for the opportunity to lock hands with the ones who have stood by me, waiting patiently, as I stumbled my way from major label princess to carefree indie-misfit. The love and support you’ve shown throughout the years has been unbelievable, and has kept me strong. Hearing stories of how songs of mine have touched your lives INSPIRES ME and is my motivation every, single time I step behind the microphone.
I see Kickstarter as an awesome way to open the door to the studio to anyone who might like to be a part of the recording process, behind the scenes; to offer goodies that will never be available elsewhere and to turn this DAYDREAM of mine into a reality. Going indie means that I have to find new, creative ways to fund, record and release new music. So I'm offering experiences that go way beyond the music itself. I'm so excited for this journey we are about to take together.
So please GET INVOLVED, send me Kickstarter messages, ask questions, give feedback, check updates.
Thank you for your amazing support!!
Throughout the years, the one reoccurring comment from fans has been that you'd like to hear my voice MORE and the production LESS. This record is my answer to that request. I believe it’s some of the best and most honest music I’ve ever created. The songs are still very much pop but with an organic spin that listeners might not expect.
I’m working with one of my favorite producers in Nashville, Jeremy Bose (Ingrid Michaelson, Joy Williams of The Civil Wars). His sound is very modern and unique in that it stays pop and accessible but it’s very honest. The music never overpowers the vocal or the overall feeling of the song.
I’ve written hundreds of songs since I last released and my best songs will be chosen for this album. We’ve already finished a few, and we have so many more to choose from. Now it’s just about getting in the studio and making it happen.
Every penny we raise will go directly towards making this album, including the studio/producer/engineer/mixer, as well as marketing and manufacturing the merchandise for this campaign. There's absolutely no way we could do this without you.
So now, for the goodies… for your support I’d like to offer you some super fun rewards. I put a ton of thought into these rewards and as you can see in the reward tiers to the right, I wanted this Kickstarter experience to connect us and involve you in my music making process. Not only are there exclusive merchandise and rare collector items, we can spend time together doing some really fun things!!

This was my first truly indie record. I was able to hire some of favorite people as musicians, co-producers and I had a gospel choir full of friends. It was recorded in less than 6 weeks and was one of the most fun creative processes I’ve ever had! I loved re-imagining these classic songs and creating a few new ones of my own. I love Christmas music and the memories we create to it. To this day, I remember putting up the tree with my Dad each year to some of our favorite artists of the time. That made a strong impression on me and, because of that, I’ve always wanted to provide the soundtrack for families making their own holiday memories.
