While Shades of Jade may be a collection of different sounds, as well as covers and original songs, one thing remains consistent—the effortless delivery of tone, technique, and passion that comes from newcomer Jade Novah. She owns each cover, complete with re-production by the mixtape’s Executive Producer, Devin Johnson, that only drives home the point that you’ve heard some of these songs before, but never like this. From her critically acclaimed cover of Chris Brown’s “All Back” to the emotionally charged original “Sticks and Stones,” Shades of Jade ascends. Having been an accomplished songwriter in the music industry for several years, her original songs paint an audibly astonishing picture of what the world can expect from Jade Novah—the artist. Shades of Jade is a stylistically refreshing, yet masterful freshman effort that is sure to ready listeners for what’s to come.
