BIO FROM MTV.COM-
You may not yet know the name KADEN, but it's possible you are one of millions that have heard his songs on various popular shows. Still unsigned and in the middle of recording his debut album. Kaden has been approached time and again, with his project gaining the attention of popular networks and professionals in the industry. Most recently this singer/songwriter has had his music played on international radio stations, countless magazine interviews and was the soundtrack to the lives played out during the final two episodes of MTV's 'The Hills'. Kaden's track "A Boy Like Me" is currently the theme song for the new show "The A-List: New York".
In contrast to "The Hills" and "The A-List: New York", Kaden was raised in the small town of Emmett, Idaho. He grew up always having a love for entertainment, listening to music far beyond his years and always appreciated songs that had deep lyrics. Some of his favorite artists and groups include: John Lennon, Oasis, Fleetwood Mac, Journey and The Eagles. As he grew he went through musical phases where he'd play rock, pop, r&b, or even country for months at a time.
After graduating early from high school Kaden made his way to Los Angeles. Kaden states bluntly, "When I got on the plane and headed to LA, I did it on faith. I counted the change in my pocket, I had no money in the bank but my heart was completely invested." At times, Kaden held three jobs to support his dream and pay the high studio costs, engineers, mixers etc. When he wasn't working, he spent his time building lasting relationships with fellow artists and music execs. Meeting after meeting Kaden continued to impress music producers with his talent, passion and drive. Many started working with him on spec, because of their belief in him.
Kaden has several singles on iTunes. He continues to be what some would call a workaholic and is in the gym preparing for the rigors of touring. There is no tour set yet, but Kaden trains as if there were a concert tomorrow. Believing that if he prepares himself as much as possible both mentally and physically the opportunities will come. He has just completed a music video for his single "A Boy Like Me" the theme song for "The A-List: New York". He continues in his quest of finding a supportive label, writing for other artists and creating the soundtrack to his fans lives.
It's been a long road to "The A-List" and Kaden is the first to dispute being on any list, "I'm not even the Z-List" he says laughing. We have no doubt that one day many people the world over will know his name. You're reading this, so now....you do!
