Hailing from Santa Margarita, CA, Jade began playing guitar and writing songs at the young age of 13 and spent her high school years playing small gigs at local venues, never really believing she had a future in the industry. Shortly after seeing Social Distortion in concert, Jade was inspired to pursue a career in music and formed a tight-knit band, who has gone on to share the stage with such iconic artists as Merle Haggard, Rosie Flores, and Dwight Yoakam.
Along the way, Jade caught the attention of Social Distortion frontman Mike Ness, who offered to be her mentor and produce her debut album, “Gilded,” set to release on May 19th! This album is “unapologetically country rock, merging the heartbreak and resilience of Lucinda Williams with the melodic confidence of Emmylou Harris, yet containing the emotional presence of a young musician who cherished albums by The Gun Club and Smiths alongside the works of George Jones and Hank Williams.”
Opening for Jade Jackson is Bobcat Rob Armenti! After touring the country in a beat up RV with his band in 2013, Bobcat setup camp in the secluded mountain town of Lee Vining, CA, where he wrote and recorded his debut solo record, “The Cat’s in the Saddle,” an album full of country soul and gritty folk music from heartwarming ballads to full-fledged barn burners. Now, based out of Santa Cruz, CA, Bobcat continues to tour both as a solo act and with a full band anywhere from the streets of Santa Cruz and San Francisco to backyard campfires and gatherings all over the country. His second full length album is set to be released in 2017!
