Multi-talented artist, producer, singer, songwriter Chris Jaiden is on the cutting edge of an American music revolution.
Originally from Philadelphia, PA, Chris Jaiden now resides in Los Angeles, California. His single "No Worries" from his album "Welcome to California" was an Official Grammy Contender for Best Rock Performance for the 2020 Grammy's. Chris was also a Grammy Contender for 2021 in the category Best Melodic Rap Performance for his hip hop single "Face the Music (feat. Rico Laws)" which he Produced and also wrote and performed the chorus hook. To top it off, his hard rock band Cloaking Skies with Sean Bombz was also a 4 time Grammy Contender for 2021. They only released 2 singles so far and both were up for 2 categories each. The single "Swirls in the Pearl Mist" was a Grammy Contender in the categories Record of the Year & Best Rock Performance. The 2nd single "Ashes & Flames" was a Grammy Contender in the categories Record of the Year & Best Metal Performance.
This makes Chris a 6x Grammy Contender in only 2 years. His 2 solo singles in 2020 & 2021 and both of his band Cloaking Skies singles getting 4 categories in 2021, all made it to the last 12 Grammy voting members after 3 months and 3 rounds of voting in both the 2020 & 2021 Grammy's.
This was all achieved as an unsigned indie artist. All records have been released and published under his own indie record label Karmatic Jaiden Music. Chris is a Breedlove Guitars sposored artist.
A blend of East meets West Coast styles, his musical talents range from his roots of rock and roll to hip-hop hooks and rhymes. His keen and perfected engineering and production skills, as well as his realness in his songwriting abilities, are just a few of Chris’s unique performance and recording talents.
A true rock performer, Chris brings back a refreshing feeling of old school to new school kinetic energy to all of his music. His projects include his hard rock band Cloaking Skies, his rock bands, Reflektiv + Surface; his electronic rock solo venture, The Flu; his hip-hop project, The Grae: Area with Bay Area MC Sean Blak, and various hip-hop projects where he is featured for his catchy hooks. When he is not writing music, Chris is busy producing and engineering his own tracks in his own Laughing Dove Studios as well as those of other strong, local emerging artists.
With a grass-roots beginning of playing live acoustic shows and open-mics, to sold-out shows on the Sunset Strip, Chris brings a unique and seasoned youthful understanding of what it takes to truly make it in the new music industry. His style and lyrics are intense, like him, offering a connection of mind and soul to audiences everywhere.
“I feel like when I perform, I encapsulate an audience with a flow of positive energy and driving, soulful rhythm,” says Chris while picking his acoustic Gibson J-45.
The strong, unearthly and soulful vocals of this rising star reach within the spirit of his audience, taking the listener on a journey through timeless, modern classics. Listening to Chris sing live almost makes you feel like you are back in all of the good parts of 1994: at a Nirvana-meets-Soundgarden concert, wearing your favorite flannel.
Chris Jaiden is one rare, powerhouse rock voice that truly needs no microphone to echo melodic, timeless rock resonance throughout the Universe.
