Jade MacRae Biography (Wikipedia)
Jade Aurora Moana MacRae (born 8th December 1979) is an Australian soul singer and the daughter of professional musicians Joy Yates and Dave MacRae who live in Sydney, Australia. Her debut single "You Make Me Weak" debuted in the top 50 places of the Australian singles charts in November 2004, while her follow-up single "So Hot Right Now" debuted in the top 20 places of the Australian singles charts in February 2005.
MacRae's self-titled debut album was nominated for Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA), MTV Australia, Australasian Performing Right Association (APRA) and Urban Music awards in 2005 and 2006. The singer's second studio album Get Me Home was released in October 2008. In 2012, following her marriage to Australian hip hop artist Phrase, MacRae continued her musical career under the new moniker of "Dune". 2018 saw Jade return to the studio to capture what may prove to be her most pivotal record to date. A collection of songs penned in hotels and dressing rooms whilst on the road with US Blues guitar great Joe Bonamassa, this record reveals a depth, both musically and personally, not heard from MacRae before with a sound reminiscent of Etta James, Ray Charles, Sam Cooke, Big Maybelle and Dinah Washington. Recorded all live to tape, and featuring some of Australia's most revered musicians and singers, this highly anticipated record is slated for a 2019 release.
