Rebecca Jade

Artistic Director

Rebecca is a vocalist and has been involved with music for most of her life. Growing up in a musical home, she has been exposed to a vast assortment of artists, genres and styles from her mother, who is also a vocalist. With such influences, it seems a natural progression that Rebecca has followed in her footsteps.

Rebecca has been described by many to have a chameleon-like quality to her voice, where she is able to deliver each song in a unique way, yet she has been blessed with a sound unlike anyone else. Music lovers express how her singing induces a genuine feeling within them, and many have stated that she has the ability to transfer the emotion of each song to her listeners.

Rebecca Jade has performed with the most sought-after musicians and at some of the best venues across the nation and the world. Rebecca’s versatility has allowed her many unique opportunities to perform: she has been touring with percussionist and musical icon, Sheila E. since 2017; She performed on the 2016 Soultrain Party Cruise and the 2016, 2017 and 2018 Dave Koz Cruise, which included singing with Kenny Lattimore and Larry Graham; She has done multiple concerts at Spaghettini and the House of Blues (San Diego, Anaheim, Boston, Las Vegas); She has also performed the National Anthem for many professional and collegiate athletic organizations.

Rebecca has over 25 years of recording studio experience. She has sung demos and background vocals, as well as jingles on many different projects and has also been featured in a variety of works, including an on-going project with Kevin Flournoy (piano player for Chaka Khan, Pointer Sisters, Donny Osmond). She also released her debut original music project, “The Jade Element” and opened for Grammy-nominated musical artist, Musiq Soulchild on two separate occasions. Her sophomore album was released with her new group project, Rebecca Jade and the Cold Fact, which earned them consecutive San Diego Music Awards in 2014, 2015 and 2017 and a “Best of San Diego” Award in 2016, and the opportunity to open for and later sing a duet with El Debarge during his set. Rebecca Jade and the Cold Fact is working on a follow-up album, set for release this year. Rebecca is also a jazz vocalist and released a Cole Porter album with the amazing jazz guitarist Peter Sprague, which earned them a 2018 San Diego Music Award for “Best Jazz Album”. Rebecca is also currently working on her first solo project, which will be self-written and co-produced with pianist/arranger/producer, Carnell Harrell (The Jacksons, J-Lo).

Hey friends, 

Welcome to my crazy life of music. I’ve been a singer as long as I can remember. It’s really all I know. But my love of singing has become even more meaningful to me over the years as I experience the two-way, healing power of music. I feel it every time I support a cause that is important to me or see someone in the audience experience the comfort of a lyric or the joy of a guitar solo. But the connection we share transcends even the songs themselves. More and more I’m learning that hardship, grief and tragedy make music not just an occupation or a diversion- but a necessity. Sharing music is as essential as food and water to me.

As any working mother would understand, my life is about balancing my music career, raising 4 beautiful kids, learning more than we ever wanted to know about brain tumors and of course…coffee is the best invention ever. Gigging at the infamous Abbey Road Studios and touring Europe holds nothing over walking my kids to school or binge-watching British costume dramas with my husband. Being an artist takes your whole life and God has certainly given me a full one to share through music.
