Biography

Jada Koren Pinkett-Smith (born Jada Koren Pinkett; September 18, 1971) is an American film and television actress, producer, director, model, author, singer-songwriter and business woman.

Pinkett-Smith launched her music career in 2002, when she helped create the metal rock band Wicked Wisdom, for which she is a singer and songwriter.

“I listened to all kinds of metal as a kid. Metallica, Guns N’ Roses. I would always look at Axl Rose and say, ‘Why aren’t there any chicks out there doing this now?’ I always wanted an opportunity to get out there and rock out.”

—Pinkett Smith on why she created Wicked Wisdom

Under the stage name Jada Koren, Pinkett Smith formed the metal rock band Wicked Wisdom in 2002. The band consists of Pinkett Smith performing lead vocals, Pocket Honore (guitar, vocals), Cameron “Wirm” Graves (guitar, keyboard, vocals), and Rio (bass, vocals). The band is managed by James Lassiter and Miguel Melendez of Overbrook Entertainment, a company co-founded by Pinkett Smith’s husband Will Smith.

Wicked Wisdom landed a slot on Britney Spears’ Onyx Hotel Tour in 2004, one of the year’s highest-profile tours. The band opened for Spears for eight dates in April and May 2004, during the European leg of the tour.[26]

The band’s debut album, Wicked Wisdom, was released on February 21, 2006, by Pinkett Smith’s production company 100% Womon. Will Smith served as the project’s executive producer. The album made it to Billboard’s Top Heatseekers chart, and peaked at number 44 during the week of March 11, 2006. Allmusic reviewer Alex Henderson said of the album, ” shows herself to be an expressive, commanding singer” and that ” shows considerable promise”.
