Devon Paige’s ‘Love and Dreams’ is perfect for driving with the windows down
By Brennan Stebbins
Devon Paige discovered a love of performing as a child actress doing professional music theater, but later took a break while she tried her hand as a millennial in corporate America.
Then she received a stark reminder about her true passion when her father passed away in 2019.
“He just didn’t enjoy a lot of life,” she says. “He was so focused on his career and his family and making sure they were well taken care of that he didn’t really get to do a lot of things he wanted to and by the time he had things he wanted to do he was much older. It was a reminder that I have dreams and I have passions and you can’t wait that long to do them because life is short.”
Devon got back into music and started writing a single, and then suffered another loss when her grandmother passed away. At that point she knew she needed to make her music dream come true.
“I know how proud they would both be,” she says. “I just need to make it happen.”
Devon officially kicked off her return to music with her 2021 single “Resentful,” a slower song about toxic love, but really wanted to do something more upbeat and more in the pop genre, inspired by artists like Katie Perry and Sia. The result is her newest release, “Love and Dreams.”
Her upcoming single, “Love and Dreams,” was written by the incredible Esjay Jones and produced by the one and only, Trey Vittetoe. They helped bring her vision to life for this upcoming hit.
“It’s a good, happy love song,” she says. “It’s like when you fall in love with someone and you’re in that honeymoon stage. I just thought that was perfect because everybody can relate; everybody’s been in love. There are so many songs on the radio now that are about heartbreak and breakups and although I still love those songs, I wanted to write something that embodies their feelings for their loved ones .”
“It’s catchy,” she says. “As soon as you hear the top line it just sticks in your head.”
Even as an adult, Devon still loves being on stage and she plans to do some live shows in the near future. She resides in Charlotte, North Carolina.
