Jade Tamara is set to release her Debut Single “Selfish” on Friday 12th July. Selfish manages to combine elements of neo soul with a real young women’s perspective on love and personal growth. The track was written at a time when Jade was struggling with a breakup of an intense relationship and explores the emotional turmoil that occurred. This is just a sneak peak of what’s to come; Selfish sets the vibe for the upcoming EP, “The Intro.” She has had the opportunity to shadow Wu-Tang on tour and received accolades from other artists including DJ Sticky (Boo – Ms Dynamite), Audrey Scott (Goodbye my love – The Sadonians) and Calvin Francis (Mi-Soul radio).
Soulful singer Jade Tamara originally hails from Manchester, transcending 90’s hip-hop and soul with lyrics that are personal and represent today’s societal issues. Jade Tamara grew up in a household that provided her with an education in neo-soul and 90’s Dancehall. It is evident that Erykah Badu and Lauryn Hill heavily influence Jade.
