Jade & The Gem

Jade & The Gem was an acoustic trio consisting of Jade Beeby (vocals, keys), Jesse Martin (guitar, vocals) and Lloyd May (guitar, bass, percussion). They performed on the Johannesburg acoustic circuit 2013-2015 and toured South Africa in support of their self-titled EP in 2015. The trio was well-known for their genre cross-overs, re-works and mash-ups, as well as their tapping-style and maskanda-influenced guitar work. The trio disbanded in 2015 following Beeby’s full-time pursuit of theatre.
