“WALK ON” SET TO HIT RADIO IN JUNE
Hit pop songwriter JADEN MICHAELS has released her debut single “Walk On” via MP45 RECORDS. A soulful anthem that indisputably pops, the song is available digitally everywhere (smarturl.it/walkonitunes) and will impact radio in June.

“Lyrically, it can go in many different ways,” she reveals about “Walk On.” “Most people might think it’s a relationship song. It’s not. I’m telling my older self to walk on. I couldn’t stay the person I was. I moved on. It’s introspective, and progressing from those hang-ups empowered me.” The uplifting track sits somewhere between the experimentation of Gotye and the soulful power of Adele.
After being homeless in L.A. for a period in her early teens, the 18-year-old has gone on to be a sought-after songwriter with songs on Jennifer Lopez’s forthcoming summer album A.K.A. She has penned songs for Lea Michelle and Naya Rivera as well. Her song “Love Game” became a triple-platinum hit for Namie Amuro in Japan. Pulse Recordings 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.”
JADEN crafted “Change Nothing,” which Jessica Sanchez sang on the finale of 2012’s “American Idol.” The next year, the very first song Jaden wrote “I Am Beautiful” clinched victory for Candice Glover on “American Idol.” Since then, she’s gone on to write “Sorry” for Naya Rivera and Big Sean, “Louder” and “What Is Love?” for Lea Michelle as well asnew music for Robin Thicke.
Still, 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.”
