Reflections on the "Breathe" Album

"Amber Jade is a real contender. I love Breathe! I want another copy! Keep your eye on this girl. She is really going places."- Huey Lewis of Huey Lewis and the News
"I love this [Breathe] CD! The lyrics are heartfelt, the music soulful, and the vocals haunting and compelling. In particular, I find that 'Your Front Porch,' 'Hold You Down' and 'For My Sister' speak with a voice I wish I possessed. I was struck with their power the first time I listened to them, and with each subsequent listening they make themselves more a part of my psyche. I'm very impressed. ... it is a very well done endeavor. It is very much like the loss of virginity, I think: impassioned, but occasionally halting; raw, yet sympathetic." - Donovan X

She is a gifted writer and takes the wonderful storytelling and personal issues pertaining to folk singing, and combines them with mainstream music in order to reach those of a younger crowd who may need a little extra inspiration and direction in life. She is largely self-taught and naturally gifted..." - The World of Music and Dance
