From the age of 11, Jade began to sing songs imitating those of her idols including Eva Cassidy, Alanis Morrisette, Stevie Nicks, Aretha Franklin, Axl Rose, Elton John, Seal and other legendary vocalists.
The best art imitates life. Jade’s music has always been focused on writing songs based on personal experience; referencing highs and lows of her life, relationships with friends and family, illnesses and above all else, acceptance. Joining The Pink Floyd “The Wall” Live Show has shown Jade that the formula for writing songs literally ‘from the heart’ can eventually produce one thing; a masterpiece. It’s an honour to perform such an incredible piece of art with such a talented selection of musicians and vocalists.
Jade’s music is elegant, simple and clean which has only been accentuated by the local legendary musicians she has worked with including Brian “Saxophone” Jones from The Undertakers, The Christians, The Swinging Blue Jeans and The Gary Murphy Band.
Jade is not only a solo vocalist and guitarist, but is one half of the duo ‘Glade’ in which she is joined by the fabulously talented Glyn Williams from China Crisis. This lively and upbeat collaboration is an exciting and refreshing combination, showcasing both Glyn and Jade’s talents to the max.
Jade released her first EP of original songs in March 2016 which encapsulate her soulful voice in full. Influences of rock, pop, country, jazz, funk, soul and blues all come together to give Jade the tools she needs to write music that reflects on the past, shares lessons learnt and grows with her as she evolves in both her personal and creative selves.
Live music in the Loft from 7.30 pm. £5 entry.
