Rebecca Jade

Sultry singer Rebecca Jade (Siren’s Crush) was the singer for Super Magnetic when that band won the 2010 Ultimate Music Challenge at Viejas Casino. She released her debut album The Jade Element in July 2011.

A new ensemble called Rebecca Jade & the Cold Fact debuted in early 2013, featuring at various times players like Alfred Howard and DJ Greyboy. Their debut self-titled release came out in early 2014, earning a San Diego Music Award as Best Blues Album that October.

The following year, Jade began performing internationally as a member of “smooth-jazz” saxophonist Dave Koz’s Cruise. During one cruise, Sheila E. approached her about filling in for one of her back-up singers. “One of them was unable to make a few dates, so of course I said ‘yes’ even though I had to bail on a few things here in town,” Jade told the Reader. By summer 2017, she had become a member of Sheila E's band.

The 2019 Rebecca Jade & the Cold Fact album Running Out Of Time was recorded with Alfred Howard (percussion and lyrics), Jake Najor (drums), Jason Littlefield (bass), Daniel Schraer (keys), and Ian Owen (guitar). “We rehearsed for six months before we went in to the studio, so we were able to knock out the band parts in two days. Then I went in to the Redwoods home studio to lay down the vocal tracks. I’m a stickler for getting my parts just right, and I needed a few takes to make that happen.”

She was seen during the TV broadcast of the 2020 Oscars ceremony singing backup for Elton John. Her Autumn 2020 single and video for “Bad Wolves” - featuring Jason Mraz, Miki Vale, and Veronica May - is described by label Pacific Records as "a dark yet inspiring protest against the “bad wolves” running the country, furthering systems of oppression and racism in the US." According to Jade, "'Bad Wolves,' to me, is about perspective, and a rally cry for the acknowledgement of racial injustice and police brutality, while calling out the blind eye of the unaffected, in musical form."

“On and on throughout history art has aided in the enlightenment and transformation of humanity," says Mraz. "'Bad Wolves' is more than a song. It’s a 4 dimensional experience of music, poetry, visual art, and dance. It’s a virtual march for peace. A call for change, calling out injustices when we see them, while signaling the silent to wake up. It’s not political. It’s ethical.” The track won Song of the Year at the 2021 San Diego Music Awards.
