Australian pop/country singer-songwriter Jade Holland will bring some festive cheer to the Sugarland Tavern stage on Thursday night when she performs her new single ‘Do it Right'.
The Townsville product, now based in Newcastle, is enjoying a busy end to the year, touring nationally to promote her new single ‘Do it Right’ and being reappointed as Mental Awareness Foundation ambassador for 2021.
Following on from the success of her second album ‘Dream Wild’, released last year, Jade said ‘Do it Right’ was more a statement and a call to action for men and women in relationships across the world, rather than a standard love song.
Do it Right
‘Do it Right’ mines the depths of Jade’s past heartbreaks while galvanising her determination not to waste years obsessing over a lost love.
“Being able to take control of my own heartbreak made it easier for me to walk away,” Jade said.
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, ‘Do it Right’ became a quarantine project managed across international time zones.
Co-written by Jade with David Mescon and Bruce Wallace in Nashville last year, it was recorded in Australia and Nashville and produced by ‘Messy’ Mescon at Messy Room Studios also in the American country music capital.
Jade said the physical distances involved in the song’s creation did not detract from the final product.
“Even though we were on different sides of the planet, we were able to find the same frequency in this song,” she said.
As an ambassador for Mental Awareness Foundation, Jade was one of the first artists to tour again following the COVID-19 lockdowns in Queensland, taking her ‘Resilience’ tour throughout regional areas of the state from August to October.
Mental health is a cause close to Jade’s heart, having experienced firsthand the effects upon family members, and she hoped the return of live music and other forms of entertainment to everyday life helped the Queensland public to overcome the hangover effect of COVID-19.
“This tour really hits a note for me because you never really notice mental health awareness in your own life until someone asks you if you are OK,” she said.
