4. Jade was a female fronted heavy metal band from Canada, formed in 1982.
JADE hold the distinction of being the "1ST Female Fronted" Heavy Metal Band, (as well as being the 1ST Canadian Band) signed by Cees Wessels back in 1984, directly to ROADRRUNER RECORDS NL; having paved the way for many other artists. Lead Guitarist PAT BELROSE founded Toronto-based JADE in 1982. ROXY LYONS (1982-1984) was the original Lead Vocalist for JADE; replaced by SWEET MARIE BLACK (1985-1986), for their 2ND album. Released: IF YOU'RE MAN ENOUGH (1985) Roadrunner Records RR-9755. TEASING EYES (1984/reissue, by Maple Metal Records MMR-001 2009) JADE Toured all across Canada & USA in support of their 2 albums, but their biggest fanbase was in the Quebec metal market, & in Europe. SWEET MARIE BLACK left the band in 1987, stating irreconcilable differences & was replaced by PETE RIEKER (1987-1988) & then JAMIE LEE SAINT (1989). However, ROADRUNNER RECORDS really wanted JADE to pursue with a Female Lead Vocalist! PAT (guitarist) has since relocated to California in 1993, and has formed popular LA heavy metal act WORLD JUNGLE.

5. Jade also refers to a folk/rock band from England, who recorded their only album in 1970. "Fly On Strangewings" was released in 1970 in both the UK and the USA It received rave reviews and comparisons to Sandy Denny and Fairport Convention. A short tour of the USA and UK plus appearances on Disco 2 (A forerunner of The Old Grey Whistle Test) were part of Jade's short but productive life, before internal pressures split the band in the summer of 1971. Jade was one of the most popular UK folk/rock bands of the early 1970's.
Folk duo Marianne Segal and Dave Waite toured the late' 60's folk clubs of the UK with the likes of Sandy Denny, The Strawberry Hill Boys (later the Strawbs) Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, The Dransfields, John Martyn, Ralph McTell and other such luminaries of the UK folk circuit. They signed to Dick James Music and under the guidance of producer Jon Miller became Jade, with the addition of keyboardist/bassist and arranger Rod Edwards. In 1970 they recorded their sole album and singles with a the help of a glittering array of talent including Pete Sears (Les Fleur De Lys, Sam Gopal's Dream, Jefferson Starship) John Wetton (King Crimson, Family) Terry Cox (Pentangle) Jimmy Litherland (Colosseum) Michael Rosen (Eclection, Fotheringay) Clem Cattini (Rumplestiltskin The Ivy League) Pete York (Spencer Davis Group, Hardin and York) and Mick Waller (Rod Stewart). "Fly On Strangewings" was released in 1970 under in both the UK and the USA - where it was issued under the name Mariannne Segal and Silver Jade.
It received rave reviews and comparisons to Sandy Denny and Fairport Convention. A short tour of the USA and UK plus appearances on Disco 2 (A forerunner of The Old Grey Whistle Test) were part of Jade's short but productive life, before internal pressures split the band in the summer of 1971. Now over 30 years later Jade's sole album is regarded as one of the best albums of the '70's UK folk rock movement. Unknown by many collectors it ranks along with The Trees' "On The Shore" and Mellow Candle's "Swaddling Songs" as one of the great underground albums of the era.
Poorly promoted and tragically underexposed original UK copies of the album now sell for hundreds of pounds. Tight electric guitar work harpsichord and violin are blended with breathtaking string arrangements and soaring male/female vocal harmonies. A beautiful production encapsulates the bands vision of a rustic folk/rock idyll wherein the American West Coast hippy dream is enshrined in a pop vision of Constable's Olde England.
"Fly On Strange Wings" was Melody Makers album of the month when released in 1970. 30 years later it appeared in the UK's Mojo Magazine as one of the top ten UK folk rock albums of the '70's along with Fairport Convention's "Leige and Leaf". Now at last it is widely available to be afforded the classic status it deserves.
