As one of the rare classical artists invited to perform at the South by Southwest Festival, her show was ultimately branded one of the “Best of SXSW 2014.”

Jade has starred in a Broadway-style musical called Lillette’s Rhythm Club and can be heard portraying Nina Simone’s classical years in the Oscar-nominated documentary What Happened Miss Simone? In her unique career as a concert pianist and media host, Jade has remained dedicated to expanding the boundaries of classical music and its presentation.
