You might have heard of Sunday Girl before. Perhaps you saw her supporting Ellie Goulding on her mammoth UK tour, or perhaps you’ve seen her incredible videos for 2010 single Four Floor (remixed by Diplo no less) or 2011′s gorgeous Stop Hey. Perhaps you’ve danced to the songs she wrote for Martin Solevig, Rusko and Booka Shade. Perhaps you saw her on the front row of nearly every major show at London Fashion week, rubbing shoulders with pop royalty Kanye West and Beyonce, or maybe you’ve come across her capsule collection for the label Firetrap. However it’s happened, it’s probably a good idea to remember the name – Sunday Girl’s brand of sophisticated pop is about to dominate your future.
It’s been a relatively long journey to this point, but one that’s seen Jade prove she’s not your typical popstar. Blessed with a gorgeous voice, the songwriting midas touch and an eye for design, the Sunday Girl that’s set to emerge in 2012 is the finished version, not simply a pop package but a complete artist. Her ambitions aren’t small either; “I think my goal at the moment is to write one song that is a timeless tune and one that I can be proud of forever. I think I’m really close to getting it.” Watch this space.
Jade also has a love of fashion and as well as covering London Fashion week for Mulberry and BBC Radio 1Extra, Jade has also designed a collection for Firetrap. And we do mean designed, as the label were quick to find out. “I think they just clocked that I did fashion at Uni and I think they thought I’d come in and go ‘oh, I like that’ and I just figured this is the best opportunity so I literally hand designed all the prints.” Armed with a handful of sketches for their first meeting, Jade was quick to make sure that – as with anything with the Sunday Girl name on – the collection represented her as an artist. Early reactions to the collection have enthusiastic with Fearne Cotton and Rihanna, no less, wearing it.
