Some of the greatest art is drawn from darkness. So too was Love & Lust – the compelling and honest third studio record from  Jadea Kelly . Set for a  June 3rd, 2016 release via her own label Darth Jadea Music (distributed by Fontana North), the stunning 11 song album touches on a gamut of emotions from heartbreak, infidelity, desire, betrayal, forgiveness and human frailty. Have a listen to the first track,  Make It Easy , with her risque lyric video: http://bit.ly/23Vb4BX . T he album is available to pre-order now at: www.darthjadea.com. Sharing her time between Toronto and Nashville, Jadea is ready to bring these anticipated new songs on the road this summer, and through the fall. Details listed below.

“I wanna drown it. Way I feel. If I do does it make the heat less real

Sit up on me/ Pull my waist. Watch the blood rush through my face”

The opening lines of Love & Lust frame these emotions candidly on Make It Easy. Swelling with vocal hooks and ambient guitar delays, Love & Lust is an honest and eerily haunting folk genre – accurately coined by her peers as Euphoria Folk. Jadea guides the listener through the darkness of infidelity and her prolific journey towards light and wisdom.  “Making this record saved me and healed me completely.” Jadea continues;  “I made it for the women and men who have faced the same uncomfortable truths of love & lust. It may well be the hardest album I’ll ever write but also the most prolific time of my life.”

Recorded in Toronto at Noble Street Studios and The Woodshed Studio throughout 2014 and 2015, the album was co-produced by Stew Crookes (Hawksley Workman, Doug Paisley), Tom Juhas (Royal Wood, Emma Lee) and Jadea live off the floor and directly to tape. Each song beautifully crafted and thoughtfully executed.
