After a hiatus from SoundBetter to focus on personal projects, I'm back!!! By night I'm a session singer-songwriter, topliner, lyricist, guitarist and by day I work in music supervision, publishing and sync. Any song that I collaborate with you on can also be pitched for sync opportunities through me if it's the right fit.
Hi! I'm Jaden. I'm a singer-songwriter and topliner based in Los Angeles, but traveling often between the US and UK and working full-time in music. I'm experienced as a top-line writer, session singer, songwriter, and lyricist, and I specialize in indie pop, top 40 pop, dark/ethereal trailer music, singer-songwriter, folk/americana and blues.
In addition to having a couple of my own solo projects, I also write with/for other artists in a wide variety of genres.
Vocal delivery ranges from honest, intimate and raw to a fuller more soulful sound. My voice also lends itself well to various over-the-top vocal deliveries and I can alter my voice to work for a variety of different project and genres from Film & Gaming trailer music, to Blues Rock, to Anthemic Pop.
I'll gladly stack vocal harmonies, doubles and alternative background vocals, should you choose. Happy to comp vocals if necessary or bounce all the vocal takes for you to comp.
I've had the opportunity to work with a wide variety of producers, engineers and songwriters and I appreciate the ones that approach music with heart and a commitment to always doing their best work possible. I will always do the same for you.
Please tell me about your project as I'd love to support it and collaborate with you!

I've been working with Jaden for years. She is one of my favorite singer-songwriters to use for collaboration in the songwriting, recording, or production stages of creation. She's eager to help, innovative with problem-solving, and her voice consistently captures the ears of anybody listening.
Jaden is a perfect collaborator in the studio. She is on time and on point. Extremely talented and knows when she nails it. Looking forward to working with her again in the future.
