At the age of 10, Jaden decided to audition for a musical titled ‘Tarzan,’ based on the classic tale of ‘Tarzan.’ He auditioned for the role of the younger version of ‘Tarzan’ and bagged the role. He began playing the role in 2010 and continued for the next 2 years.
The musical had become quite popular. This instilled confidence in Jaden, and he decided to pursue acting as his full-time profession.
In 2014, he was featured in the trailer of the musical titled ‘The Miracle of Bern.’ His role was eventually removed from the final show. However, the same year, he received a big break when he appeared in the children’s series titled ‘The Peppercorns.’
Following this, he took an indefinite break from acting and focused on his career as a singer/musician. He uploaded his covers of popular songs on his ‘YouTube’ and ‘YouNow’ platforms. He slowly gained prominence. ‘ISINA Music’ contacted him for their mentorship program. Thus, his musical journey began.
‘ISINA Music’ had decided to bring together many young musicians from around the world and then mentor them. They formed a group named ‘New District.’ The all-boy band had five members, including Jaden.
‘New District’ released the video of their song ‘Closer’ on ‘YouTube’ in February 2016. The song was produced by ‘Emmy’-nominated producer Emile Ghantous, who had worked with international celebrities such as Pitbull and Prince Royce in the past. The song earned more than two million views within the first year of its online release. Currently, it has a whopping 3.5 million views.
In July 2016, the group released yet another single, ‘Ain’t Got Money,’ which became highly successful. The song currently has more than six million views on ‘YouTube.’
Apart from their original songs, the group performed covers of popular songs such as ‘Thinking out Loud’ by Ed Sheeran and ‘Stitches’ by Shawn Mendes.
‘New District’ became increasingly popular with each song they uploaded. Following a classic boy-band structure, which became popular in the 1990s, the band made waves across the US, too. Targeting major markets such as New York, Chicago, Miami, and Los Angeles, the group remained in the top 40 of many charts.

They were also nominated for the ‘Teen Choice Award’ for the ‘Choice Music, Next Big Thing.’ They also got the opportunity to play at the ‘KIIS FM’ station as a member of the ‘Artist Next Up Program.’
After its release, their single ‘Closer’ was the most-requested song on ‘Radio Disney Mailbag’ for a few weeks. It was also featured on ‘Spotify’s list of ‘Fresh Finds.’
Jaden enjoyed huge popularity with ‘New District,’ but in 2017, he decided to break apart from the group to follow a solo music career. He signed under ‘GC Records’ and released his debut solo single, ‘Better than Me,’ in October 2017. The single failed to attain success.
The following month, he released the cover of ‘Every Breath You Take,’ a popular song originally sung by the band ‘The Police.’ The cover could not achieve much success.
However, his talent did not go unnoticed. ‘Warner Music Germany’ offered him a contract. In 2018, Jaden released the song ‘The Weekend’ under the new record label. The song has gained over half a million views on ‘YouTube.’
Apart from being a singer, he also actively works as a DJ. In 2018, he performed as a DJ at the ‘Ultra Music Festival’ held in Miami, US.
He is currently settled in Los Angeles and aims to build a full-fledged musical career in the American entertainment industry.
