Title: Love Made Me Drunk
Love Made Me Drunk resembles a pristine picture-postcard from Paris. On one side, there is a stunning cityscape, replete with a stylized view of the world's most romantic city. This is when Gregory Page fills his songs with labyrinthine cobble-stone streets, stylish women, and the warm, yeasty smell of baguettes cooking in the morning.
Flip the postcard over, though, and you find a handwritten note from another world. For all his quaintness and amorous depictions of The City of Lights, Page's Paris is not without its ghosts. Throughout the album, figures move in and out of these vignettes, causing the songs' speaker to question the reality of the scene, and eventually his own existence.
Page describes his music as "Eurocana," or a mixture of Americana folk and the rich, orchestral music of the French torch singers from the first half of the twentieth century. His lyrics are alternating playful and introspective, revealing the influence of the former tradition.
