Congratulations to Jade who was crowned the 2105 winner of Melbourne Music Bank at the finale event held at the State Theatre on October 8th. Despite fantastic performances by runners up DL, Sam O’Connell and Napier, Jade’s catchy song Kick Drum, won the hearts and votes of the judges.
Jade will be launching her song at the Workers Club on November 26th. Watch this space for her upcoming film clip and more news of her progress.
The idea for this song’s melody actually came to Jade in a dream. 'Kick Drum’ is about the feeling of effervescence and uncontrollable happiness.
Jade grew up in a musical family, performing and writing throughout her childhood. She received first prize in the ACMF song writing competition in 2012, and performed an original song with orchestra at Hisense Arena for the Victorian State Schools Spectacular 2014.
She studied Music Performance and Music VET year 12, before studying Interactive Composition at the Victorian College of the Arts.
