Stormchaser is a very well-produced song and that really serves to enhance the overall sound– but nothing can mask or disguise Jade’s very recognisable voice. I’ve listened to the song on repeat since Jade sent it to us at Silverball Country this afternoon and I think it is very much in the same vein as some of the biggest of the current crop of Female Country Singers – Carrie, Kacey, Kelsea.
A powerful song about relationships, co-written in the home of Country Music with Luke Thomas, Jason Tucker and Daisy Davis the sometimes explosive instrumentation really punctuates the emotion but it is truly Jade’s vocal that takes us through the ups and downs – mirroring both the image of a storm and the storm of feelings portrayed in the lyrics.
Here is Francesca’s first impression after just one listen
“Knock me down and spin me around – I had to do a double take as this could be Carrie Underwood, but the way the word “Blue” is sung gives away that it is Jade Helliwell with her Northern accent underneath that beautiful Country voice of hers. The whole piece creates a really dramatic picture especially with the echo effects, and I can imagine a dramatic video to accompany this, with the storm coming. All praise to the guitarist for the beautiful solo tucked into the song”
You can tell that Francesca will be listening again – and again, and we both can’t wait to hear this song being performed on a big stage with a full band to truly do it justice. This has got us looking forward to Festival season all the more
I the meantime, we will just have to hit “repeat”…
“Stormchaser”, the new single from Jade Helliwell will be available for download on 8th March to coincide with her performances at Country 2 Country at London’s o2 Arena.
