One listen to her electrifying, ambitious debut album, Class Reject (Revolution Art), and it becomes clear that Jade Harrell’s distinctive blend of eclectic music from a Christian point of view contains a passion and perspective rarely heard in modern popular music.
“I see the world as a big classroom and because I am a Christian, and because I’m a strong advocate for abstinence until marriage, I’m automatically rejected by most of the world,” Jade Harrell says. “That’s not how the world does it.”
Fortunately for Jade Harrell, it’s hard to reject her powerful music, which regularly journeys from one genre to the next while remaining compelling and captivating. The Motownish feel of “Don’t Leave,” for instance, serves as a fervent backdrop for this love song to God, while the celestial feel of “Only Human” augments her resolve not to be overcome when seemingly grand challenges present themselves.
Growing up in Middleburg, Jade Harrell had to accept that her peers didn’t always understand or appreciate her. Given her diverse interests, she was called “white girl” by classmates who didn’t comprehend her distinctiveness and her far-reaching interests. She was also ostracized because of her firm stance on abstinence, which led males to look to other girls for dating options.
Fortunately, Jade Harrell didn’t succumb to peer pressure and she was ultimately rewarded for being herself. When she was 13, a keyboardist in her church noticed her vocal talent and started using her as a background singer. This work earned the attention of Revolution Art, owned and operated by Christian rap stalwarts the Grits, who were impressed by her artistic prowess and versatility.
Now, with Class Reject, Jade Harrell has delivered a powerful project by baring her soul and embracing herself. “I had so many problems and I didn’t know what the source was,” she says. “When I put them out there, it was easy to write about them, think about them and sing about them. I want to encourage people to open themselves up and to be real. I think that’s the easiest way to find out who you are.”
