Dixie Jade


Fierce & radiant, Dixie Jade blend their love for classic country and vintage soul with in-your-face pop radio production. A duo in every way, their music marries the strength of powerful vocals and bold guitar riffs with the sincerity of a reflective heart. In their words it’s “Grit and Amazing Grace”.

Andrea (lead vocals/piano) and Dominique (vocals/lead guitar) first met while they were music students at USC. Although they never spoke, fatefully they ended up in the same choir and creative writing classes as juniors. A year later, Andrea recognized and approached Dominique at a songwriter’s open mic night hosted by The Bluebird Cafe in Nashville. They bonded over their love of 90’s country and the blues, and a fast friendship quickly turned into a creative partnership.

Since then they’ve written hundreds of songs together and toured across the nation. Brad Paisley even took note of Dominique’s YouTube cover of his guitar instrumental “The Nervous Breakdown” with a personal shout-out on his Facebook page. They also had their cover of “Drift Away” with Karen Waldrup go viral on Facebook with over 5.6 million views. Dixie Jade has recently performed on KTUL’s Good Morning Tulsa, opened for Thompson Square, Love and Theft, and Walker Hayes in addition to playing the BMI Key West Songwriters Festival 2016. They’ve played countless shows in Nashville, including the legendary Bluebird Café and the Tennessee State Fair, and placed 2nd in the national competition American Country Star. In November 2017 they released their single “I Can’t Turn You Off”, recorded at “The House of Blues Studios” in Nashville, TN.
