Bio

Chris Page is an Ottawa-based, independent songwriter known for fronting bands Expanda Fuzz, Camp Radio and The Stand GT.  

He has released four solo records that range from wistful folk to stripped-down pop. From Germany to the U.S. to Australia, Chris has released records on independent labels the world over in the 25+ years he’s been making music.  

His new LP "Decide To Stay And Swim Again" will be released April 2, 2020. This album is a stunning collection of acoustic, indie folk songs and is Chris's most stark release to date. The album was recorded entirely in his home studio and Chris prides himself as an artist who creates and releases his music independently, in the true spirit of DIY.  

His previous record, Volume Vs. Voice, was another lyrically-striking set of folk gems and was released to critical acclaim when it came out in 2015. 

“Chris Page perfectly skirts the line of punk rock and folk while playing pop songs on his acoustic guitar…Page’s latest solo release, his fourth, Volume Vs. Voice, was one of my favourite of 2015, not just in Ottawa but period. Chris Page is a must see for fans of The Weakerthans and for people who love it any time a punk rock soul finds himself behind an acoustic guitar.” – Ottawa Showbox.

“This is a clever honest album, true to its title, worth taking the trouble with the journey of understanding.” – Americana UK 

“PICK OF THE WEEK: The interplay between acoustic and electric guitars is masterful with the electric never overpowering, only enhancing. Chris’ voice also really stands out as it seems to teeter on the edge without ever stepping off. Lyrical content is rich and personal. All in all, this record is a win.” – Cups N Cakes Podcast
