2017 was a breakthrough year for Yorkshire native Jade Helliwell and she is showing no signs of slowing down this year. Forget The Night had already reached number 2 on the iTunes country chart before a video of her singing Halelujah with a busker in Leeds went viral. 20 million views later she found herself at number 8 on the iTunes album chart. Last October saw Jade’s year end on an ultimate high when she won the 2017 BCMA Female Vocalist of the Year.
Jade has now returned with her new EP and you need to get ready to be taken on a roller coaster ride, Infatuation – an intense but short-lived passion for someone.
The 5 track EP opens with the catchy chorus of Repeat, where you feel like you have finally found the one for you and your relationship is like having a love song on repeat. The positive love vibes continue when you meet someone across the bar in By My Side and you have a feeling the good times are about to start.
The love songs take a turn in Numb, as we lose all emotion and feeling due to a heartache. Heartache doesn’t last long as we return to the early stages of romance and how the heart beats in Boom Tick. Another track with more catchy lyrics and no doubt Jade will have the crowd singing Boom Tick Boom, Boom Tick back to her.
Jade has finished off the EP with When I’m Sleeping, that moment when your partner is watching you sleep but you aren’t actually sleeping and instead are enjoying the moment.
Jade has continued to show why she won the 2017 BCMA UK Female Vocalist of the year and can now only continue to look forward to more success. She has a voice that makes you want to cling onto every word and has the ability to make you feel like you are a part of each song as you experience the feelings with her. Jade will be appearing at a few festivals this summer and is bound to be sharing tracks from this latest offering. You can catch her at Buckle and Boots in Manchester, Nottinghamshire’s FSA Festival and London’s free city centre event, Nashville Meets London.
