Jade is a Vietnamese, Bay Area, R&B Singer/Songwriter. Her deep level of empathy and emotional complexities allows her to hit the heart of the matter with every lyric written. She writes songs that invoke intense feelings of conviction, depth and purpose, delivering them through a sonically heartwarming and inviting sound. As a mother of two, having experienced a gun to her head and the possibility of taking her music to the grave, she now lives a life dedicated to sharing her music.
