Hailing from the hills of Grass Valley, California, Paige Anderson & The Fearless Kin are a fresh approach to the bluegrass roots, folk, and americana music scene. Playing music with their family band (Anderson Family Bluegrass) since 2004, the siblings have played around the country at many well known events and festivals, such as Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, IBMA (International Bluegrass Music Association Awards Show and Conference), Wintergrass, CBA's Fathers Day Bluegrass Festival, and many more. When Paige graduated in 2012, she decided she wanted to pursue a music career. She started writing songs in 2009 with a style all her own, and asked siblings Aimee and Ethan if they wanted to start a band featuring the new music, Paige Anderson & The Fearless Kin. Since they started in 2012, they have wowed and captivated many audiences with their powerful original songs, strong sibling harmonies, and unique styles of singing. They released their debut EP, Wild Rabbit (2012).
"Paige Anderson is in the most critical time for a “prodigy” musician turned original performer. So often this is the juncture when a whiz kid who is wonderful at memorizing music is exposed. Naturally we all give adolescent performers a greater benefit of the doubt. But when they’re old enough to vote, the cold reality of the judgmental music world scowls down upon them and pulls no punches. The leap from performing covers and traditionals to penning your own music is treacherous to say the least. Paige Anderson’s Wild Rabbit is not perfect, but I am delighted to report that she strides over one of the most difficult hurdles in a music career and sticks the landing. This EP displays an uncanny adeptness of songwriting and arrangement beyond the formative age of the players, and conveys hope by forming a nexus between youthful appeal and artistic value. Its foundation is bluegrass, but Paige Anderson’s wise compositions draw influences from folk, country, indie rock, and roots music in an amalgam that is fiercely original. She is backed by The Fearless Kin consisting of her sister Aimee on fiddle and brother Ethan on mandolin, with mother Christy Anderson on bass. When the three Anderson siblings combine on harmonies, hearts stop."
