It’s been a long and winding road for singer/songwriter Samantha Jade. Years of hard work and setbacks have roadblocked what should have been a smooth road to pop success, but with the release of her debut artist-album NINE, Samantha Jade is now ready to let the good times roll. All her years of dedication and determination have finally paved the way for an album of fresh pop sounds, underpinned by a lyrical depth of maturity shaped by her experiences over the years.
“For an artist, the album is a body of work, it’s not just one song and one video – it’s a journey that embodies a range of ideas and emotions. I’m glad that the situation is what it is now [I can say that now!] because I’ve put my heart and soul into this album and I’m really happy with it. I feel really proud of what I’ve accomplished. We’ve been working on this project for quite a while, really taking our time to make sure everything sounds great. It’s been a very careful and thoughtful process to make sure I’m able to express who I really am as an artist, and not just a reflection of what else is going on out there in the music industry. I really feel this album is, at its heart, the very soul of who I am.”
NINE is an album of beauty and complexity, which on the surface first blossoms as melodic pop affair, but which slowly reveals its complexities and maturity. Samantha Jade is proud of her passion for pop music, and doesn’t shy away from the wide appeal of her musical style. The songs on offer aren’t trendy, of-the-moment, producer-stamped recordings, but instead deliver fresh, catchy, and instantly-dynamic hooks that revel in joy and positivity.
With the release of NINE and an upcoming guest role on Home & Away (which follows her critically acclaimed performance in the INXS television series Never Tear Us Apart), the momentum for Samantha Jade’s career is higher and faster than it’s ever been before. With international interest and tour discussions for 2016, destiny has arrived, roadblocks have been removed, talent has been recognised, and all Samantha’s positive energy is finally being rewarded.
