Help Jade Diary fund her new Music Video - JORDAN

 

The story of the project

I am a dreamer, storyteller, solo singer-songwriter and performer.

This project is to raise $3000 for production costs for a music video for my newly recorded single, JORDAN. I am an independent artist, so there is no big, powerful record label behind me to pay the bills for a music video. 


The Song: Jordan

The song that I wrote called ‘Jordan’, is about a dramatic and personal trauma in my life. I felt extreme desperation and desolation. The song represents finding peace and healing and abundance through the journey. It is my hope that others who hear the song and watch the music video will also find this same sense of hope and healing.

What's the plan?

In late July, the music video will be shot in 2 outdoor locations. It will be a visual telling of my song and I hope to capture the essence of the lyrics I wrote for Jordan.

The single will be released once the music video is completed which is aimed for September or October. At the same time, the song will have some dance version remixes through Pentaprism (UK based electronic music producer). 

Jordan and its remixes will be promoted to radio in Australia, and potentially in the UK and the US. 

Who's involved?

The music video will be produced, directed, filmed and edited by Red Bird Creative. 

Red Bird Creative is an innovative and exciting digital media studio based in Perth, Western Australia. Here is their showreel:
Songwriting Collaborators:

The song was written by myself (lyrics and melody), the melody then refined with the amazing Rob Agostini of Soundbaker Studio (www.soundbaker.com), superb guitarist, Ryan Hodgson (www.ryanhodgson.net) and the fantastic David Skeet (music producer at https://www.facebook.com/SkeetMusicProductions).

Co-written with Rob Agostini. Rob of Soundbaker Studio has worked with Rai Thistlewaite (of Thirsty Merc), The Panics, Grace Woodroofe, Tim and Jean amongst many other artists. He has won many awards including Husband – WAM Song of the Year for “Ordinary” Rock category (2012). 

Jordan was produced by David Skeet. David Skeet is an English born producer, mixer and songwriter currently residing in Sydney. His formative years were spent in the UK where he developed a broad and eclectic taste in music. Skeet lived and worked in Los Angeles for eight years as a producer/composer/recording artist with his own projectand signed to Universal Music Publishing and Epic Records NY. As well as collaborating on songs and projects with Dave Stewart of Eurythmics fame, Andy Prieboy and Mark Goldenberg, Skeet also worked extensively on soundtracks and artist developement. Since returning to Sydney he has produced produced recordings for Brooke Fraser, Kate Miller-Heidke, Angus and Julia Stone, and The Church.

Who is Jade Diary?

Jade is my Chinese middle name and that’s why my stage name is, Jade Diary. I’ve lived most of my life on the breezy shores of Perth, Western Australia. 'Honest’ is a word that can be used to describe my music, just as one fan once told me, “I love how you bleed all over the stage”.

I didn't start writing songs until my 20s, but writing about my life experiences on that journey means I bare my heart to you while each song “wraps around your eardrums and tugs until it has engulfed your whole body”, as said by reviewer, Renee Jones of The Music. Her review of my album mermaid can be read here:

If Karen Carpenter and Ellie Goulding were the eldest and the youngest sisters, some would say I would be the middle child.

My song, ‘A Thousand Days’ released from the crowd-funded 'Love Thy Will Be Done' EP in June 2012 was ranked number 10 on ‘The Rock Across Australia’ Christian national radio airplay chart within two weeks of its debut. The song also reached number 2 on the Triple J Unearthed Pop Chart on 6 May 2012. I released a critically-acclaimed album, Mermaid. My collaboration with UK producer Pentaprism entitled 'Silver Clouds' earned me 2nd place in the Dance category of the 2013 MusicOz Australian Independent Music Awards. And the best is yet to come.
