Called a “musical force of nature,” Jade Simmons is easily one of the most exciting and versatile artists on the scene today.

In the last two years alone, financial services companies like Mass Mutual, Voya, Deloitte, RBC and Nationwide; biotech and pharmaceutical giants like Pfizer and Genentech; Innovators like Dow and Raytheon; universities like University of Michigan, University of the Pacific and Grand Canyon University (who brought Jade in for all 6 Fall commencement ceremonies), and important conferences like Simmons International Leadership saw fit to bring Jade in to power up their legions and their leaders.

Her home language is the language of high-achievers, influencers and visionaries and her knack is in shifting mindsets in real-time to unlock possibilities for breakthrough thinking, limitless living and record-breaking.

In her inimitable career as a concert pianist, Jade has remained committed to expanding the boundaries of Classical music and its presentation and, as a result, has revolutionized the concert platform. Today, she offers an incredibly diverse mix of repertoire from the Classics to the cutting edge and diverse audiences have come to expect creative projects backed by riveting performances.

She has performed at The White House and has also received the Sphinx Organization’s Medal of Excellence in a concert held at the US Supreme Court hosted by Justice Sonia Sotomayor.

In an extraordinary turn of events, Jade was tapped to portray legendary concert jazz pianist & entertainer Lillette Harris in the new musical Lillette’s Rhythm Club which debuted in Florida this past June. She has even made waves as one of the rare classical artists invited to perform at the taste-making South by Southwest Festival where her show was ultimately branded one of the “Best of SXSW 2014”.

A born-storyteller, Jade powerfully and humorously relates these creative twists and turns that have made her a standout in her industry to audiences looking to do things differently in their own right in order to see greater impact in life and business.

“Jade was AWESOME! Loved the energy it was completely different experience”

Network of Executive Women

 

“Jade was not only a critical part of our event day, but she helped promote the event ahead of time on her own social media channels and engaged in conversations directly expressing her excitement in joining us. Following her stellar performance, she then took the time to respond to every guest who tweeted at her continuing to motivate off the stage. I heard from a number of attendees how excited they were she responded and continued to be the “real deal.”
