Ohio’s Paige Beller has steadily gained traction in Midwest indie circles since her debut on the scene in the mid 2000s. Known for her multi-instrument approach, she has turned what could have been another singer songwriter act into something that feels like an entire band, using drums, guitar, keys, synth and loops to create grand sonic landscapes. Beller’s style is raw and imaginative, both reverent and challenging of pop tradition, and delivers in lyrics and melodies that are emotionally vulnerable.
Beller recorded several singles at Reel Love Recording Company in Dayton, Ohio, in 2018, and released her first full length LP, I’ll Be Better (one of the best releases this year in my opinion), a couple of weeks ago with Sofaburn Records. Her latest endeavor, a split with dynamic synth-pop maestros MOIRA in collaboration with hip-hop artist TINO for a limited run of exclusive 7″, drops on Friday.
Ghettoblaster has the pleasure of premiering the video for “Collection of Almost” today. The compelling video/ masterful performance was recorded live on the roof of Yellow Cab Tavern in Dayton, Ohio, and was filmed and edited by Bobby Tewksbury.
