Jade Thunder, nee Tremarco, has been on the local music scene for just over 23 years and is best known for her singing with The Gary Murphy Band, Eclipse – The Pink Floyd Experience, Court & Spark – The Joni Mitchell Experience, and gigging as a cover artist throughout Merseyside in various acts, most notably Next of Kin with Diane Tremarco (or as I call her, Mum).
She has worked with the likes of Liverpool Express, Gerry Marsden (RIP), The Swinging Blue Jeans, The Undertakers, The Searchers, supported The Connie Lush Band, and has had the honour of being a backing singer for Captain Beefheart’s Magic Band when they came to Liverpool in 2016.
When the pandemic hit back in 2020, Thunder crossed the line between cover and original artist, and embarked on a new musical adventure creating emotional, raw music that often incorporates nostalgic, real-life experiences.
Drawing from, and blending elements of folk, pop, rock, prog-rock, and jazz, Thunder’s songs reflect on her feelings about disenchantment, womanhood, romance, trauma and recovery.
“I have never felt confident enough to release a personal record before, but the pandemic gave me the freedom to sit down and write the album. ‘Alchemy’ is a piece of my heart and soul and a space where no one has been before. It’s an intimate record; a cathartic process where I wrote songs that sign off the past and give me permission to move on.”.
