Jade Wii

JAde Wii is a self-taught keyboardist, guitarist, cellist, and Dawless Jammer. JAde has been creating music for over 10 years, but only recently has she become a synth enthusiast, and what a journey it has been for her. She enjoys to explore the realm of composition without a Digital Audio Workstation, which is becoming more and more popular everyday. She also embraces the spontaneity of recording in one take, and sequencing her instruments in real time. As a full-time college student she uses her spare time to compose and record electronic music, drawing inspiration from the instruments around her.
