ONE LAST TIME
THE JADE ASSEMBLY
The saying 'can't see the wood for the trees' could easily be applied to Manchester's music scene... So many bands, so much attitude, so much history. Keen to stand apart from their contemporaries, The Jade Assembly are in this for the long haul and for the right reasons, nothing is fabricated or posed, their attitude comes from an inescapable force of conviction in their music.
From the passion of Watson and Danny's rhythm section, to the raw power of Smed's guitar work, each Jade Assembly tune has a clear sense of purpose, nothing is contrived.
Central to their main point of difference is John Foster (Foz), a true northern poet and songwriter that places honesty above favour, a frontman who possesses an imposing sense of belief, not devoid of arrogance - but full of commitment.
As John puts it "Every word counts. Some people can't see the wood for the trees, but if you don't see The Jade Assembly - you're missing the best bit of the forest..."
