About Patrice Jégou - Founder
Patrice Jégou's interest in a self-directed career path prompted her to establish Prairie Star Records LLC. Patrice has a background in Classical music, but doses of popular influences like jazz, gospel, and blues have always been part of her performing career. A native of Red Deer, Alberta, Canada, her singing has taken her to Spain, the UK, Peru, Argentina, Mexico, the US, and, of course, Canada. Patrice holds a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from Mason Gross School of the Arts - Rutgers University. Upon graduation, she was awarded the Irene Alm Memorial Award which is given to an outstanding graduating doctoral student for excellence in scholarly research and performance. Patrice has released two albums on her label - SPEAK LOW (2015), and IF IT AIN'T LOVE (2019) - and has recently completed a third album that she's planning on releasing in the Spring of 2021.
