Page France: Youthful Pop, Complete with Horns

Page France.
Page France.

Page France began as a project for prolific songwriter Michael Nau, who's spent four years and five albums working with some of his favorite musician friends. For the new ...And the Family Telephone, Page France has finally jelled into a collaborative unit — a real band.

Showcasing a more upbeat sound and additional instrumentation — including a horn section — Page France's new songs continue to showcase Nau's subtle, witty lyrics. When writing songs, Nau secludes himself in rural Maryland, sitting outdoors and writing; perhaps as a result, his songs are infused with a youthfulness that keeps them sounding fresh and unpredictable.
