Her melodic voice and strong acoustic guitar playing combine for a powerful musical experience.

Jae brings heart-felt enthusiasm to her music. She is known for her performance style that radiates joyful energy as it tells a story. Her passionate connection with her audience is clear. Jae's history is as rich and colorful as the music she writes and plays. Born in Los Angeles, Jae moved with her family to a rural community in Arkansas when she was eight years old. The acappella gospel singing of the area was the 'schoolroom' in which young Jae learned to blend acoustic harmonies. Eager to express her own musical talents, she began writing songs at the age of 12, and cultivated her desire to share the music she wrote. Her musical interests continued to be the focal point of her life until 1989 when she was accepted into Chiropractic College. Somewhere during the rigorous course work the drive to write and perform music left her. It also left a noticeable peace, which was at first recognized as a relief from the burning, desire to play. Since graduating from chiropractic school Jae has enjoyed using her creative talents in the field of complementary medicine. In 1999 jae left a busy practice in Ithaca, New York and moved to Hawaii. With time to reflect, she found her music to returning to her. She began writing again and to her surprise the desire to share her music began to return as well. The CD 'Anything For You' is a collection of self penned songs. It celebrates the depth and diversity of experience in relationships between individuals and also with the greater world at large. All eleven songs on the CD were produced purely acoustically. The strength of the acoustic based album is in the clear vocals, the sweet guitar melodies and eccentric rhythms, as well as the blending of many intricate harmonies.
