Artist You Need to Know: Jaden Michaels

You may have never heard of Jaden Michaels, but I guarantee you’ve heard her work.

Hailing from Davenport Iowa, Jaden moved to California in her late teens to make a go of her career. She lived out of her car for the better part of a year before she got her publishing deal. From there things took off. Jaden has written for and worked with stars such as Jennifer Lopez, Carly Rae Jepsen, Demi Lovato, Robin Thicke and Lea Michele. Not to be fortgotten is Jaden’s equally talented younger sister, Julia Michaels who has toured with the likes of Shawn Mendes and Keith Urban.

It’s difficult to label Jaden’s musical style, as it is with most artists today. Country, pop, R&B, all fuse together to make some of the best music. Jaden is coming into her own, keeping more of her songs for herself, rather than giving them to other artists, and finding her footing in the country music circuit. She released two songs at the end of October in “Behave” and “Making Up.” Both are in the same vein as “Preach,” the song that was released in the summer of 2017 that showed Jaden’s more personal side, as she decided to keep the songs she wrote, for her own recording instead.

If country music is on the hot seat for needing more women on the radio, then Jaden is exactly what country music needs: an incredible songwriter who can sing and write the catchy, upbeat songs, as well as the powerful ballads. Who doesn’t want more of that?

Watch Jaden Michaels take the country world by storm.
