New Music: Jade De LaFleur ‘Blue Notes And Green Trees’

Sometimes it’s necessary to take a break from the thumping bass, braggadocio claims and struggle raps of hip hop. Enter Jade de LaFleur, a former member of the girl group Sophia Fresh. Her jazzy/bluesy number “Blue Notes and Green Trees” beautifies the simplicity of a stripped voice, robust piano chords and sailing brass notes. While her EP Jaded is set for release in late October, she’ll be featured on Solange’s Nov. 12th Saint Heron compilation album. Get lost in her sound below.
