Her name is Jade Hendrix, a name you won’t forget once you’ve heard her sing. Jade’s talent is undeniable; her music, irresistible.
"RAISED BEHIND THE CURTAINS AND IN GREEN ROOMS ALL AROUND THE COUNTRY, JADE HAS ALWAYS HAD A SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP WITH MUSIC."
Jade studied at Happy Valley Performing Arts School in Ojai, where she began writing and performing her own songs. She attended Columbia College in Chicago and the University of Nevada Las Vegas, with music her constant companion, emotional outlet, and spiritual center. Her most joyful memories are of growing up backstage, watching from the sidelines as her mother, Sharon Hendrix, a world-renowned backup singer, performed, and listening to Joni Mitchell, Laura Nyro, Judy Garland and Donny Hathaway, her greatest sources of inspiration.
Jade has always enjoyed the process of writing, but realized her dream of becoming a singer/songwriter when her mother and producer Dan Voss coaxed her into the studio to record an album. Titled Carry Me Away, it’s a brilliant debut with two of her strongest influences, Joni Mitchell and Donny Hathaway, resonating in a set of songs filled with playful, probing, word-painted imagery and a voice that’s plaintive, soulful and warm. Jade, with her latest EP Farewell To Emerald City in released last June, is looking forward to shows all over Southern California and the West Coast at large.
