“Chris Page is the Paul Westerberg of Ottawa” —Peter Simpson
And that’s not really high enough praise for Chris Page, the frontman of Camp Radio and The Stand GT who just released his third solo album titled Volume Vs. Voice. Known for his energetic punk rock, his newest release is a slightly different beast compared to his earlier work but still the passionate music that we’ve known to come out of Page. It’s fun, it’s heartfelt and it rocks!
He’s currently doing a coast to coast tour leading up to an Ottawa release show this Friday which will be a wonderful intro to a summer record that we’ve already been listening to since mid-April.
Chris Page said it best himself, “This record is very mellow—it’s the other end of the spectrum from Camp Radio. It’s much more like being at a ‘camp fire’. Ha!”
He’s a poet that one. So stoke your fires and get ready for Saturday with a little quiz that leads to a wicked sweet prizes!
