Her current projects include performing with musicians across the North, singing jazz, blues, soul and funk music, taken from the All American Songbook.

She regularly performs and writes music with folk, jazz, trio, ‘Band of Jays’, an intriguing blend of experimental songwriting techniques, luscious harmonies, togetherness and hopefully something that will leave you wondering what the hell you just listened to…

Other current collaborations include session work; singing and writing with producers to create music library tracks for TV, film & radio and she is also a vocalist for a funk & soul band.

She also appear on Savvy’s latest album, Huddersfield Hip Hop at its finest. Check out his releases and more at http://www.saving-grace.co.uk/

In the past she has worked with other artists for their live performances and recordings.

“Every generation throws up a handful of musicians who can interpret the classic American Songbook afresh. These ‘standard’ and ‘show tunes’ often appear hackneyed, taken for granted or just plain old-fashioned. Yet, artists with talent and vision breathe new life into them. Think Ray Charles, Etta James, Nina Simone and Eva Cassidy. I can hear the same visionary quality and musical talent in the work of vocalist Jade Harris”
