Vocalist Jada Brown Finds Power in a Microphone

By Kate McDonald

Jada Brown, affiliated with the Turtle Mountain Band of Ojibwe, is a vocalist and poet who is passionate about engaging in creative resistance work. Rooted in soul, R&B and alternative sounds, her work offers a peaceful blend between captivating and tranquil, qualities also reflected in her onstage presence and and in-studio magic. Empathy as a revolutionary act is central to her work.
