Description

Inspired and named after her grand father's farm in rural Ontario, 'Clover' touches on the interconnected relationship between farming and working as a musician - and her hope to have a life in music. Although raised in suburban Whitby ON, the Kelly family have worked and sacrificed on this land for three generations - and it is on this farm that Jadea composed a majority of Clover. " Much like farming, working as a touring musician offers little financial reward - nor does it provide a guaranteed retirement. Despite this, I am fully dedicated. It is my passion and it is stiched into the very fabric of my being. Whether performing in a large hall or sewing a field with seeds, both professions are a calling and a require love of land and love of art". The album artwork provides an additional visual understanding of Jadea and of Clover. The front and back album panels depict a painted wolf and crow, both decorated with green clover. Both animals, long villainized throughout history, are present within the lyrics on such tracks as "Lone Wolf" and " I'll Be". 'Lone wolf don't hunt like he used to. Sinks his teeth with a jaw loose' 'Don't preach what you don't know, I'll take flight with a black crow' These creatures are showcased to highlight their positive attributes, and in turn the positive attributes of Jadea. Rather than a symbol of fear or evil, the wolf has long been regarded within aboriginal folklore as a teacher and / or pathfinder. And the crow, characterized as a symbol of death or omen, was once known for it's intelligence, luck and knowledge. All of the images are representations and symbols of the sorrows, obstacles, hope and growth in Jadea's personal life this past year. Clover will be released through Divergent Recordings - a new alternative imprint within the True North Records family - and Darth Jadea Music "I'm extremely proud of this record and pleased to be surrounded by so much positivity and creativity. I can't wait to share it with everyone".
