[IWD 2013] Introducing... The Jardines!

The YWiB SFU team is very excited to welcome The Jardines to our International Women’s Day conference! The Jardines will perform during the morning of our event, and are sure start our event on the right note, and definitely get the crowd going! The Jardines, with their "go big or go home" attitude, are an 8 piece contemporary country pop/roots act fronted by mother/daughter songwriting duo Cherelle and Ajaye Jardine. Their story has a fairy tale start, but would soon evolve into the reality of an 8 piece band with 2 albums in 2 years.

Cherelle was getting ready to record her 5th solo cd when she casually asked Ajaye, (a budding singer/songwriter), if she would like to create a project together -­ a mother/daughter band called The Jardines. At an age when most teenagers would balk at joining forces with one of their parents, Ajaye said yes... and the Jardines concept was a reality, songs were composed and Canada's hottest mother/daughter act was born, yielding a delicious mixture of street smarts and innocence. Their life experiences are meshed together, giving fans an ageless body of work to fall in love with.

You can learn more about The Jardines on their website, or check out their YouTube channel to get a preview of their performance at IWD!
