It’s been with great pleasure to work with Jade, a singer/songwriter on her debut album, It’s My Heart Cookie. Being part of the same collective of ScottOnTheRocks, and GFC-NY, it was natural that our paths would cross. I am her DJ, and just a guy to bounce ideas off of whether in the studio, or munching on tacos at a Chinese-run taco stand.
The first time I actually met Jade though, one of the first things she said to me (with conviction) was that she was going to be famous. She should have been, a long time ago back when she and Vanessa Marquez were two thirds of a group on Pharrell’s Star Trak. On her independently released EP, Jade’s production is handled by Chuck Inglish (The Cool Kids), Precize (Mickey Factz), and Jonathan Carmelli. Check for Brooklyn’s own, Theophilus London who also contributed a verse to the lead single, “Take The Hit.” Read below a quick q&a with Jade, then download It’s My Heart, Cookie.
