Mad Hallelujah (http://madhallelujah.com/) is a band of funky mystics who have been touring the globe for over four years, sharing their all-original music at numerous festivals & venues across three continents.
Innovatively weaving together elements of folk, rock, psychedelic jam, funk, bluegrass, and tribal music into their own unique sound, Mad Hallelujah features big three-part harmonies, infectious hooks and grooves, soaring instrumental jams, and seamless genre transitions. Always engaging, they offer audiences a hearty invitation to sing along and dance like mad.
The group was originally formed as a collective of busking troubadours in New Zealand in 2015 as “Mad Hallelujah Tribe.” They have gone on to record four albums, headline festival stages, and embark on multiple tours in Australia, New Zealand, Europe and the US, earning a dedicated following along the way and a reputation as ecstatic dance-floor igniters, crafters of deep musical journeys, and crowd favorites at festivals, music clubs, and intimate venues alike.
Samara Jade (previously known as Searra Jade) is a modern folk troubadour and musical seamstress who stitches together a unique tapestry of sounds with intricate guitar playing and an acrobatically emotive voice. Weaving diverse musical strands colored by folk, jazz, blues, world-fusion and even Broadway musicals, Samara’s songs cut through truth, open hearts, stimulate minds, and perhaps best fall into the nutshell of a fan-coined genre: “Philosopholk.”
Inspired deeply by the brave spelunking into the depths of the human psyche and listening sharply to and appreciating the wonders of the natural world, Samara’s music comes from the place where her soul meets the soul of the earth. Bird language, fermentation, natural burials, heart-break – who can broach such a vast array of quirky yet relevant subjects wrapped in a bundle of personal narrative, expressive delivery and musical expertise but Samara Jade? Leave it to Samara to slyly pick up a thread of an interesting conversation and come back an hour later saying “I have a song” – and likely it’s one that gets you dancing, laughing, crying, singing along – perhaps all at the same time.
Truly musical medicine for the times we’re in, Samara’s songs cry out the personal and cultural longing for belonging – to each other, to our souls own path, and to the natural world. Just like a samara (the winged seed pod of maples trees) itself, Samara Jade envisions that the wings of these songs will carry them upon the breeze until they land where they are most needed to be planted, for the sake of cultural reforestation!
