Jade de Lafleur is a Louisiana-native whose passion for music started at 5 years old. It was then that her mother, a soloist with the local church choir, introduced Jade to the music of Whitney Houston. Eventually Jade would join the youth choir herself, where she also became a soloist. The singer/songwriter’s experimental mix of R&B, Jazz, Pop and psychedelic funk are on full display in her music, which she co-writes and produces.
Jade’s first release was a critically acclaimed 9 song EP in 2014, entitled Jaded -
