Biography

(2004 - 2008)

Page France were an indie folk-pop music band. Their music tends to be emotional and their songs tend to have simple melodies. Page France is sometimes compared to Sufjan Stevens for their use of uncommon instruments such as the glockenspiel and banjo.

The band broke up in 2008. Frontman Michael Nau is now focusing his full attention on Cotton Jones.

The band has been characterized by some as Christian due to a number of references in song lyrics and titles. However, lyricist Nau counters: “The ‘Christian band’ inquiry wears me out, to be honest. As for the Christian symbols in my writing — sometimes I don’t even realize that they exist until someone points them out to me. There’s really no reason; it just rolled out that way.”

The band is a frequent feature on a number of music blogs, notably You Ain’t No Picasso.

    The similar artists function doesn't work. Death Cab for Cutie would be a good call.

    I heard the latest Cotton Jones album for the first time the other day... It was decent, but it's missing that certain something that Page France had. It just made me want to listen to Hello, Dear Wind (so I did). Also: man, Michael Nau changes his vocal style drastically between each album, doesn't he?

    Page France always managed to cheer me up, they got me through countless post-relationship depression periods and just sad times. Pity they broke up
