23-year-old Aotearoa singer songwriter PAIGE joins Mark and Kara to discuss her Best Pop Artist and Album of the year nomination at the AMA'S. 

The musician spoke about her social media campaign which brought her on stage to perform live with the Jonas Brothers when they played in Aotearoa. 

The six month experiment was a way to see if she could enjoy posting more and encouraged her to engage regularly online. After many posts and tagging the group online, "It worked and I was able to sing with the Jonas Brothers" on stage in Auckland.

Paige admits she has had luck on her side with social media since with British racing driver Lewis Hamilton, musicians Billie Eilish and Lizzo all discovering her music online. 

Paige's journey as an artist continues to surprise her, last year she performed shows in Singapore and the "EP I put out in 2021 went Platinum in Korea".

She is now setting her sites on America with the goal to collaborate with musicians based in the USA.
