Official MusicFest Artist

Jade Marie Patek
Years at MusicFest:
Fly Bird (2018)

A soulful blend of country, blues and Americana, Jade Marie Patek brings a unique sound to Texas Country radio. Jade was nominated for New Female Vocalist of the Year 2018 after her first radio single, “Drive” topped at #28 on The Texas Regional Radio Report, and took home the win in 2019. Her latest radio release, “Dead Flowers” reached the Top 20 on Texas Regional Radio Chart. Jade comes from a rich musical lineage as the granddaughter of polka legend, Joe Patek. Using her polka roots as inspiration, Jade began writing her own music and performing it live at various venues across the Gulf Coast, Central Texas and beyond. Her original music is purely Texan and definitely original. Her songs are fueled by life experiences, life lessons and a whole lot of heart and soul. Jade calls her genre of music “marble rye bread,” showing infusions of Americana/Texas Country with flares of blues, funk and soul. While she’s comfortable listening to Merle Haggard or jamming to Prince or AC/DC, her inspiration comes from greats like Janis Joplin, Susan Tedeschi, Sheryl Crow, Alanis Morissette, Bonnie Raitt, Stevie Nicks and Tracy Chapman. Make a point to witness this up and coming award winning artist at some of MusicFest most intimate stages…certain to make a difference in your MusicFest experience.
