A FEMALE EMCEE WITH A JAZZ BAND!!!
With influences from the golden era of hip hop Queen Latifah, A Tribe Called Quest, The Roots and of course Dilla to name a few, as well as jazz influences such as Herbie Hancock, Fela Kuti, Thelonious Monk and more. Jade's sound is best described as liquid soul. Started off at open mics around Chicago writing unorthodox poems and later would evolve dropping a mixtape called Midnight Radio. Jade Ivy is still kicking, now performing with her Hip Hop/Jazz/soul band, THE VINES. [+]
