Jaida Blue is an originals project comprised of well-known Jaida Blue Rock and Soul Review vocalist/lyricist Jorena Faulkner and funk bassist/composer David Hasinfelt, who have joined forces with rock and blues guitarist Debbie DeVore and multi-genre drummer Steve Hosch to create a signature blend of edgy rock and soul, with a jazzy blues twist.
Influenced by visionary artists such as Jaco Pastorius, Joe Satriani, and Jimi Hendrix, Hasinfelt brings his eclectic passion for total musical appreciation and more than 30 years of experience to the stage, combining it with the original, award-winning lyrical fusillade and soulful, realistic vocal expressions of Jorena Faulkner to create a deep and introspective fusion of melodic funk and rock. Guitarist, Debbie DeVore, rounds out the unique sound of the band, adding decades of her dedication to rock and blues roots with emotional riffs, swells and intricate, masterfully chosen solo-work, along with perfectly blended vocal harmonies. The solid back-beat of versatile drummer Steve Hosch completes the package, whether delivering a subtle nuance or a powerhouse "in your face" rock knockout!

Their power ripples through the audience, inspiring them to leap to the dance floor; everyone wants to know when they're coming back. The combined talent of the band and Jorena Faulkner's powerful vocals create an experience that is pure magic to behold." - Sub Rosa Arts and Entertainment Showcase
