Snow, sleet and an unexpected polar vortex didn’t stop us from catching the 20 year old singer showcase her wise-beyond-her-years songwriting ability, which Jade marries so well with a fledgeling frontwoman stance. Speaking to the crowd after a gut-wrenching rendition of Cathedral, Jade admitted: “that was like ripping off a band-aid”.
