Follow Friday: Jade

Born and raised in Brooklyn, a preacher's kid, Jade grew up in a non-traditional Puerto Rican household. Music is something that came very naturally to Jade early on. At an early age she began to sing in places outside the confines of her bathroom, and it wasn’t long after that, she began to write her own songs and create her own soundtrack. "It is the process of telling stories," which she says, "is one of the most amazing gifts anyone can have." I would describe her sound as a weird incarnation of Nelly Furtado.

Her latest mixtape, "Its My Heart, Cookie", can be downloaded HERE.
