Greenfest Artist Preview: Jade & Bryan
Jade Patek comes from a rich musical lineage as the granddaughter of polka legend Joe Patek who delighted crowds at dancehalls for decades with his Orchestra. Using her polka roots as inspiration, Jade began writing her own music and performing it live a few years back. Her original music is purely Texan and definitely original. A chance meeting via a San Antonio Make a Wish project brought her in contact with singer/songwriter Bryan Catalani. Both artists had been bouncing around doing the solo thing for a couple years and decided their musical chemistry would make an interesting duo act. They soon began performing as a duo and audiences/industry quickly took notice. High profile bookings included a spot at Steamboat last year followed and they were now on everyone’s radar. Jade & Bryan have been in the studio cutting their debut EP to be released in the fall and we look forward to hearing some of those new tunes at GF16.
