Singing has been Mel Jade
‘s number one love from a very early age.
“I actually can’t remember a time when I wasn’t singing.” She says, “When people asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, at first, I answered Belle from ‘Beauty and the Beast’, but when I realised that becoming a fictional cartoon character wasn’t really a viable career option, I set my sights on singing instead.”
At the age of 14, Mel Jade recorded her first demos and began performing blues covers at local cafes. By the age of 16, Mel Jade was a top 10 finalist with an original song at the MusicOz Independent Music awards. After she graduated high school Mel Jade was also songwriting for other artists. She finally stepped onto the international music scene with her track ‘Aliens’ which was remixed and released by the Pretty Boys of Saint Tropez in Europe. The remix hit the charts after top DJ Armin Van Buuren picked it up and played it on his radio segment in Holland.
After the release of ‘Alive’, Mel Jade toured the UK, performing at Universities, Pride Festivals, fashion runways during London Fashion Week and live on radio.
Though she’s dripping with candy, Mel Jade also has something very raw and real about her. She is both recklessly fun and thoughtfully poetic, girl-next-door and glamourous, naughty and sweet, untouchable and approachable.
“I bought a huge bag of glitter off eBay, so I’m pretty much prepared for anything now.”
