Jade Marie Patek comes from a rich musical lineage as the granddaughter of polka legend, Joe Patek, who delighted crowds at dancehalls for decades with his Orchestra. Using her polka roots as inspiration, Jade began writing her own music and performing it live a few years back. Her original music is purely Texan and definitely original. The songs are fueled by life experiences, life lessons and a whole lot of heart and soul.
Jade has been performing for the past 9 years at various venues from the Gulf Coast to the San Marcos/New Braunfels/San Antonio area. She has also played and will continue to play at many impressive shows and venues like MusicFest at Steamboat, Rio Frio Fest, River Jam, River Fest, numerous other festivals and national anthems. Jade calls her genre of music “marble rye bread,” showing infusions of Americana/Texas Country with flares of blues, funk and soul. While she’s comfortable listening to Merle Haggard or jamming to Prince or AC/DC, her inspiration comes from greats like Janis Joplin, Susan Tedeschi, Sheryl Crow, Alanis Morissette, Bonnie Raitt, Stevie Nicks and Tracy Chapman. There’s a common theme there if you haven’t noticed.
Jade's debut single "Drive" is available on all major music services including iTunes, Pandora and Spotify, and can be heard on regional Texas Country radio and internet stations. Recently Jade has been nominated for Texas Regional Radio Music Award's New Female Vocalist of the Year and "Drive" has been nominated for Texas Music Picker's Song Of The Year (Spotify artists under 1,000 followers) Vote Here
Jade is a member of The Americana Music Association, TRRMA, Texas Country Music Association, and BMI.
