With a sound steeped in Jazz, R&B and Soul, multiple ARIA award nominee and APRA award winner Jade MacRae returns to Australia in 2021 set to deliver her acclaimed album “Handle Me With Care” live, supported by her incredible band.
Touted by The Guardian as; “the perfect comeback vehicle, with a subtle 60s-leaning”, Jade’s latest offering pays homage to classic R&B and Soul and deals a full hand of love and survival, opening the door to a new chapter for the much loved Sydney songstress.
Having spent much of the past 4 years on the road with US blues guitar juggernaut Joe Bonamassa, Jade relishes the opportunity to reconnect with home and showcase this album in full for the very first time since it’s release in 2020. Bonamassa heralds Jade as; “one of the most naturally gifted musicians I have ever encountered. Jade is what you would call a singer’s singer and musician’s musician. It is rare to see the combination of soulfulness and technical dexterity meet in such a great way.”
“MacRae doesn’t do things by halves. Having penned a batch of songs buried deep in the R&B tradition, she assembled the absolute A-team of Sydney musicians to help her bring them to life.”
