Jade Marie Patek
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 singing at a young age, which evolved to picking up instruments, writing original music, and playing professionally by the time she graduated from college at Texas State University.
Over the last 10 years, Jade has been writing songs that are fueled by life experiences and a whole lot of heart and soul. Her music is purely Texan and definitely original. She calls her genre of music “marble rye bread,” showing infusions of Americana/Texas Country with flares of blues, funk and soul. She draws inspiration from greats like Janis Joplin, Susan Tedeschi, Sheryl Crow, Alanis Morissette, Bonnie Raitt, Stevie Nicks and Tracy Chapman.
In her free time, Jade loves to fish the Texas Coast and enjoy the fresh air of the Hill Country. You can find her on a boat in Rockport with her family most of the summer, but to Jade, her hometown will always be Shiner Texas, where her family originally settled and the Patek (PAW-tech) name is commonly known.
