Jade Siress is the type of musician who lives what she writes and sings with her heart. She is the type of artist who attempts to relate to people by saying what they might want to say and understanding how deep some pain can feel. It was the untimely death of her older brother Michael that lead Jade Siress to write a critically-acclaimed single called Gone Too Soon in 2013. It was that song that literally set Jade on a new journey in life; away from her previous career in pharmaceutical quality control, and into becoming a full-time touring musician with a promising future. It was a matter of pursuing her passions and now, 5 years later, she is more capable and determined than ever to share her music with a broader international audience.
Jade is currently preparing to release a new, original and high-quality album in May 2019; an LP called Back to the Root. In this new project, Jade explores various Americana and Tropical influences through melody and lyric as she also examines her own Jamaican roots. She believes that the deeper you go into understanding who you are and where you come from, the closer you get to the root of it all; your essence. That is the level of depth that Jade attempts to express in her music.
In November of 2018, Jade will take some well needed time away from her production studio to perform with Rastafest in Toronto as well as in Kingston, Jamaica. This will be an excellent opportunity to share Jade’s unique Canadian Jamaican style with a music savvy audience in the land of her roots. By early spring 2019, Jade will be aggressively promoting her new LP online and performing at a host of major international music festivals across the U.S. and Europe. So basically, Jade’s career is expected to be buzzing on an entirely different level by the summer of 2019.
