Here's a progress update. I have been in the studio recording my next song Captured. I'm told that I should make more of my songs Celtic, so I recorded a Celtic beat on my hand drum and added a great jiggy bass line. But it just didn't fit this song. I'll use these tracks either as an instrumental or apply it to another song. Captured has a Latin feel so I'm going to have to do it that way.
When I'm gigging with my hand drummer I am Jade and she is Magick. She is Latin and drumming is in her blood. So I'm going to bring her in to record on Captured because her Latin beats are amazing. So when its done I'll let you know here on Reverb Nation.
So to stay in genre, I will be releasing a series of EPs. Each with its own genre.
Take care and thank you again for listening.
Peace & Love JadeMagick
I'm often asked Why I write my songs so I have decided to let you in on the inspiration of each song.
I will begin with Ting.
Songwriters are usually highly emotional about tragic events that happen in the world. And it seems today there are more and more of these events. The event that inspired Ting happened on April 20,1999 here in Colorado, USA. Two senior students at Columbine High School in Jefferson County planned and implemented an attack on their school. The young men killed 12 students, 1 teacher and injured 21 other people. When they could not escape they committed suicide. This touched me very deeply, I suffered from sadness and depression for months. Never before had I heard of such a tragedy, so close to home. Where was the parenting to keep this from happening? Thus Ting was born.
The violin part you hear on this song is performed by Jacie McConnell. I wrote the introduction and the verse but the solo is all hers.
If you would like to have a mp3 of Ting go to my website, jademagick.com, and click on the download button and I will email you a copy.

Festivals are soooo much fun! I had a blast doing the Colorado Medieval Festival. 8 hours in the blistering Colorado sun but the crowd was superb. This is my genre since my music is the kind that was played in castles. I got a generous amount of tips and sold 2 CD's.
I also had great time telling the story of the Township of Pied to children and adults alike. My mother would have been proud, she always said I missed my calling because I was such a drama queen as a child. She thought I should have been an actress.
I have 2 music videos of songs, Flight into the Light and Changeling and 2 videos of my story telling. My friend who was running the camera was still learning how to use it so the story is not complete but you can get the gist of it from the two. Please watch and enjoy. Thank you for being a patron of the arts. Peace & Love Elda aka/JadeMagick

Here's what Tony Bucher CEO/President - Gracie Productions said when I submitted Changeling for a commercial licensing contract: "Wow, really loved this song! Not quite what I'm looking for (I'm looking for a bit more of a tropical feel). However, I wanted to make sure to drop you a personal note and let you know how much I loved this!"
