“WALK ON” OUT NOW VIA MP45 RECORDS
Hit pop songwriter Jaden Michaels has premiered the video for her new single “Walk On” exclusively today, on USAToday.com HERE. A soulful anthem that indisputably pops, “Walk On” is out now on MP45 Records and available digitally on iTunes (smarturl.it/walkonitunes) Directed by Kyle Schember (subtractive.net), the clip takes a dark turn on the uplifting song which sits between the experimentation of Gotye and the soulful power of Adele. The song is impacting radio now.
MP45 Records is the first label of its kind. A record label and promotion company that signs artists for single songs only, the goal of MP45 Records is to help musicians create artistic videos, garner radio, and support them with publicity and tour promotion. Jaden Michaels is the first artist to be signed to MP45 Records. “Jaden’s story and her talent inspired us,” says Indra Paul, president and one of the founders of MP45 Records. “Although our focus is the song, we will never lose sight of taking care of the artist.”
After being homeless in L.A. for a period in her early teens, 23-year-old Jaden Michaels has gone on to be a sought-after alt-pop songwriter. She has penned songs for Jennifer Lopez, Lea Michelle and Naya Rivera. Her song “Love Game” became a triple-platinum hit for Namie Amuro in Japan. Jaden crafted “Change Nothing,” which Jessica Sanchez sang on the finale of FOX TV’s “American Idol.” The next year, the very first song Jaden wrote “I Am Beautiful” clinched the victory for Candice Glover on “American Idol.” Quickly after Pulse Recordings (http://pulserecordings.com/clients) signed Jaden, and she soon became one of the most in-demand writers in the game. “At Pulse Recordings, I was the baby of the company,” she smiles. “They threw me into sessions that Bonnie McKee would’ve been in when she wasn’t available. Then, artists started requesting me for sessions.”
The best way to meet Jaden is through her own music. “When people hear these songs, I hope they see this little girl who came from nothing, went through so much, and is here doing it,” she concludes. “You can’t just dream. You have to put it in motion. I’m proof of that, and I’m being honest with every word I write.”
