PAGE FRANCE



Page France make wistful indie-pop with a penchant for image-rich lyrics. Singer/songwriter, Michael Nau (above right), has a distinct talent for slow and soft melodic music, much of it utilizing the not-used-enough accordion. If you like the now major label band, Death Cab for Cutie, you may find something you like in Page France's music.

The band will soon release their second album, I believe, following 2004's, Come, I'm A Lion!, on Fall Records. Making their homebase in Cumberland, Maryland, the band is a sort of revolving cast of musicians which includes: Michael S Nau, Clinton Jones, Whitney McGraw, Bryan Martin, Matthew Smith, and David Tracy.
