Jade Hopcroft is one of the rising stars amongst the acoustic scene in London, we are a big fan of hers here at Akira and are privileged to have exclusive access to the premiere of her fantastic new video ‘Saint’.
Jade Hopcroft – Saint
The 24-year-old from Cornwall has played shows with the best of the best in the acoustic scene such as Luke Sital-Singh, Matt Corby, Roo Panes and Rachel Sermanni in 2012, alongside an intimate performance at Brighton’s annual Great Escape Festival. Already having performed at one of my acoustic nights at The Cornershop, as well as playing gigs this year at Ronnie Scott’s, Union Chapel, The Bedford and at the Society Of The Golden Slippers, Jade has wowed audiences with her beautiful voice and her compelling songwriting. Sounding like a mix between Laura Marling, Ani DiFranco and with the same power in her voice as Stevie Nicks this is an artist that gets better with every listen.
Jade’s debut single ‘Saint’ will be released via tastemaker Label Laissez Faire Club (The Static Jacks, Jake Mattison, Israel Cannan) on 19 November 2012. For more info see here
