Need a gift for a gifted musician?
Jade is a 20 year old musician from England. She enjoys writing, recording and producing music. She started off playing instruments at a young age but only really got into the depths of music at the age of 13. That's when she started to learn drums, which she still does till this day.
She had a fascination throughout school with music and became really passionate about it. Making every living moment something to do with music. If that was just listening to something, tapping away or even writing a song, everything was music related.
During high school Jade would be involved in all music activities. These included Music lessons, Practical Music lessons, Arts Award, Funky Junk, An African Styled Street Band and A Samba Street Band. In the majority of these Jade would play drums or any rhythm sections. Within this time Jade started playing in a band and achieved a pass in Level 5 Rockschool for Drums.
When Jade left high school she went on to Blackburn College to study music further. She was there for three years and got a range of qualifications in all aspects of music. These qualifications where in Music Tech, Music Performance, Music Theory, Practical Exams and Music Business. In this time she was in many bands and an acoustic set, Which played in almost every venue in Blackburn. She also started to realise how much she liked music tech. This is when she began playing around with music software. Ranging from Logic, Pro Tools, Cubase and Fl Studio. Eventually choosing to stay with FL Studio as her main DAW.
Jade has collected allot of musical items up over these years which she now uses frequently in her (bedroom) studio. Although Jade would like to expand her equipment to make a nicer fuller studio she can not at this time. Her studio at the moment consists of 2 semi acoustic guitars (PRS Custom, Roberts Professional), 2 acoustic guitar (None Branded), 4 microphones (None Branded), a Tascam US800, a acoustic drum kit (Nevada Pro with Meinl HSC and Stagg cymbals), Marshall MG10 guitar amp, Stagg Bass Amp, Stagg Bass, Yamaha Portasound PSS-30, Music Composer Midi keyboard and much more including small items like metronomes, bongos, tambourine so on.
Now, in 2013, Jade is currently in a band called Violet Hill. She was previously in this same band but split up due to members going there own ways in their careers. She's managed to play live with this band since and also has more gigs lined up along side her busy schedule. She also creates songs on FL Studio and records artists as well as herself and band in her free time.
