Writing poems as soon as she had first learned to read and write, Jade Shepherd's passion for words led her into songwriting from an early age. With influences such as Simon & Garfunkel, Peter Gabriel, and Phil Collins, Jade began writing her own songs to simple chord progressions on her acoustic guitar.
As she’s grown and delved into the different experiences and emotions that come certain with everyday life, Jade's songwriting has blossomed, as has her musicianship. In her teens she received drum lessons and taught herself how to play guitar, bass, keyboard, and percussion. With the love and help of family she received an audio recorder and microphone for her 16th birthday which she would then use to record her first original songs.
In late 2019, Jade travelled to Nashville, Tennessee where she had the opportunity to write with other songwriters and be involved in the writing, recording and production of an upcoming country-pop album for a fellow musician. All the while using that inspiration and energy for her own music to develop her own unique sound.
Her new single 'Quiet Life' was written about the hustle and bustle of life in general, the seemingly ever increasing invasion of our privacy (as referenced in the line "paint curtains on the prying eyes"), and the burning desire for something more. To "break apart from the chains of the nine-to-five" and forge our own path that resonates on a deeper level with our hearts, souls, and with nature.
Produced by Grammy nominated singer/songwriter James House who says:
“I am thrilled to work with Jade. Her songs explore the depths of the human psyche with soaring melodies, intimate lyrics, and a soulful voice. She has that spark and talent that's undeniable and indefinable. Stay tuned.”
