The New Granbury Live Presents The Road Less Traveled with Jade Marie Patek


Jade Marie Patek comes from a rich musical lineage as the granddaughter of polka legend, Joe Patek, who delighted crowds and dance halls for decades with his Orchestra. Using her polka dots as inspiration, Jade began singing at a young age, which evolved to picking up instruments, writing original music and playing professionally by the time she graduated from college at Texas State University. Over the last ten years, Jade has been writing songs that are fueled by life experiences and a whole lot of heart and soul. Her is music is purely Texan and definitely original. She calls her genre of music “marble rye bread” showing infusions of Americana/Texas Country with flares of blues, fun, and soul. In her free time, Jade loves to fish the Texas coast and enjoy the fresh air of the Hill Country. You can find her in a boat in Rockport with her family most of the summer, but to Jade, her hometown will always be Shiner, Texas, where her family originally settled and the Patek name is commonly known. Jade has done an “Inspirational Notes” event with Drew and been on his weekly show at LSA Burger in Denton, Texas but this actually her first time to sit down and get the opportunity to share her story with Drew
