JADE REDD was discovered and produced by Jay Ferguson of "Spirit", "Jo Jo Gunne" and "Thunder Island" fame. The music of JADE REDD, written by pianist/songwriter James Briggs, features intricate piano lines intertwined with Jay Ferguson''s world class guitar work.
Madalena''s voice brings to life the beautiful, haunting songs that tell timeless stories through their provocative lyrics. Reminiscent of Enya and Evanescence, JADE REDD dances on the edge in a realm between the "sensual" and the "sacred".
"Rivers of Stone" also features outstanding flute performances and improvisations by John Gibson, as well as a brilliant guest appearance by guitarist Scott "Scojo" Johnson on the title track.
"Ethereal, provocative and imaginative. I am always amazed and in awe of songwriters/artists that can take words all of us use 100 times a day and turn them into stories that can pull a heart and prod a conscience. Madalena''s voice and JADE REDD''s music are pure magic."

Rivers Of Stone is an enchanting experience.....
JADE REDD''s "Rivers Of Stone" is a "must have" CD to add to your sonic library. Each and every original selection is a beautiful masterpiece of shimmering, intense, yet calming melodies surrounding Madalena''s soaringly expressive vocals. I''m also reminded of Loreena McKennitt and Madonna while listening to her , as well as Enya and Evanescence. The thoughtful and precise composition, production and instrumentation of James Briggs and Jay Ferguson continues to shine gently through all of the wonderful segments, just like the late afternoon sun beams rainbows through an exquisite clear glass wind chime. The lush and colorful photography of the jewel case artwork matches the tone and theme of JADE REDD perfectly. This is one CD that is both a pleasure to listen to and also to dreamily gaze at. Pour a glass of your favorite beverage, light some candles, lean back on plush satin pillows and relax....feel yourself softly drifting away down the rivers of stone....and completely enjoying the JADE REDD journey....wherever it may take you....
