The band was started as a solo project in 2004 by Michael Nau, but quickly evolved into a full-time project with a somewhat revolving lineup of friends and collaborators. The band self-released their debut album, Come, I'm A Lion, which was then picked up by Fall Records. Their second album, Hello, Dear Wind, was also released by Fall Records, then later re-released by Suicide Squeeze.
A tour EP entitled Tomato Morning was sold on the band's tours in 2006.
"Chariot," A song from Page France's second album, Hello Dear Wind, was featured on Episode 12 of the third season of Weeds, "The Dark Time."
The band has been characterized by some as Christian due to references in song lyrics and titles. However, lyricist Michael 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." Songs such as "Jesus", "What Have I Done", and "Bush" are among many that contain Christian symbols.
In 2008, Page France disbanded, with band leader Michael Nau focusing his full attention on Cotton Jones.
