British singer/songwriter and soul music fan Jade Anderson began writing poetry and composing when she was a teenager. The youngest daughter of Jon Anderson, leader of the legendary progressive rock band Yes, became involved in show business at the age of 16 after joining a female teen pop group. However, she wanted to express herself in a different way. That opportunity came after teaming up with a local songwriter known as Eg, who co-produced his debut album, Dive Deeper, in his London-based studio.
Jade Anderson launched her solo career in Japan with a live performance, along with seven musicians and two backup singers, to celebrate MTV's anniversary. In May 2002, "Sugarhigh" became her first hit single.
