    Every generation has a slightly different view of what a rockstar is - and this generation's rockstar might just turn out to be jxdn, born Jaden HosslerThe Dallas-born musician has just released his new track So What!. It's a taste of his forthcoming debut album, and to get you up to speed on all things jxdn here's what you need to know about the Travis Barker-approved artist.

    jxdn has tried his hand at a couple of different creative pursuits, as he's always found a need to express himself creatively. Back in 2018, he became a TikTok star - but it was music that he always enjoyed most, and it was attending one of the late Juice WRLD's concerts that solidified his desire to chase his dream of being a musician. “Music was always therapeutic for me. Instead of simply listening to what I make, I want people to really feel it.” 

    After hearing Juice's track Empty live, he realised he wanted to throw himself into making music. He didn't really enjoy high school and he'd just graduated - so he wanted to do something for himself. Out of this desire came his debut track Comatose, which caught the attention of Travis Barker - a coincidence, given the track's producer Russel Ali used a Travis Barker Splice Drum sample pack to produce the song's drums.

    After Comatose, the pressure was on jxdn to back it up - and Angels and Demons, his second track, more than delivered. jxdn explores his own mental health on the track, as he's not shying away from including himself in his lyrics. Instead, he wants to show the world what he's about, and get to grips with himself in the process.

    Speaking about the track, he says, “It talks about the duality between the light side and dark side of my brain. I’m getting into my mental health struggles. I believe music can change culture. That’s what I care about. It’s the best way to express love and who you are.” jxdn wants to inspire people to take care of their own mental health, and by opening up, he hopes people are able to undergo a similar level of self-reflection.

    As jxdn gears up to release his debut album, we continue to get a view of what makes him tick as an artist. Being a rockstar is much more than a sound - it's an attitude, and jxdn's got it in spades. We can't wait to hear what he brings to the table next. It's rare to hear a new artist already have their sound so realised, but in jxdn's case, he's just getting started.
