Jadyn Maria  

Three years may seem an eternity to an aspiring pop star, but Sparrow Recording artist Jadyn Maria has learned to wait patiently for the right time to debut her musically diverse record which combines elements of R&B grooves, aggressive rock vocals, and pulsing Latin music in a nod to her Puerto Rican heritage. Jadyn's vocals have been likened to one of her influences, Mariah Carey, but her music is more complex and textured than just your run of the mill pop music. "I love the attitude of rock, the soulfulness of R&B, and the happiness of Latin music. I'm young, I have attitude, but I also love to have fun... so it suits me well!" Lyrically, Jadyn has themed the record to challenge her peers to make good choices in their lives and aspires to be a positive role model for those who listen to her music.

The 19 yr. old artist was quickly signed at the age of 16 and has spent the next 3 years defining her sound in the studio, touring in front of over 100,000 people in 2004 alone, and sharing the stage with acts like Jump5 and Relient K. Her record was slated for a September 04 release, but in May, Jadyn was discovered by an ad agency who quickly realized Jadyn's beauty, talent, and wholesomeness translated into the perfect opportunity to be the spokesmodel for the new Herbal Essences shampoo ad campaign. That break opened more doors in the mainstream market than she could have dreamed of and subsequently changed the trajectory of Jadyn's career pushing the record release back to 2005.
