His music can be heard on “The Shield” on the FX Network. Other television appearances include “Friday Night Lights” on NBC and “In The Life” on PBS.

“Estrada is not an icon by accident,” raves Nicholas Snow of Notes from Hollywood. “You’ll laugh your butts off when Jade Esteban Estrada takes the stage,” warns Out Magazine.
