L.A.’s Paige Calico shared a new song, “Country Mind,” ahead of her show at the Bootleg in Los Angeles, on June 6. Calico from New Jersey, moved to Boston, and after attending the Berklee College of Music and parting ways fro her folk duo The Dwells, found her way to California through work with iconic music photographer, Henry Diltz.
On the song and the video, Calico said in a press release:
“I wanted to create a video based on translations and opposites, which sums up “Country Mind.” I often struggle with feeling like I’m meant to be in another place than I am. Especially when it comes to country vs city life. The contrast of Vashon Island in Washington State and Seattle felt like a perfect fit for just that. Ending on “dreaming of what could be won’t change the fate of time” — no matter where you choose to be, there you are, and there’s your pal fate, unraveling as it will regardless. Life is really just about learning to be happy with wherever you find yourself with whatever you have. Acceptance.”
