jxdn debuts new single “Angels & Demons”

Singer-songwriter jxdn debuts his new single “Angels & Demons” via DTA Records. The intoxicating track showcases his dynamic vocals over Barker’s signature production and drums. The music video, directed by Ari Nissenbaum, gives a visual component that reflects the duality of the song’s lyrics, which were co-written by jxdn alongside Barker, McKay Stevens and Keith Varnon.

jxdn is the first artist to sign with Travis Barker’s imprint, DTA Records, a worldwide joint venture with Elektra Music Group. jxdn (pronounced jay-den) is represented by manager Larry Rudolph at Maverick Management and digital production firm TalentX Entertainment, whose music department is helmed by Gavin Rudolph.

“I’m bringing rock back!!! You’re gonna hear it with a lot of music/artists I’m producing and signing to my label,” Barker says. “jxdn is an artist I’m really excited about and is the future of DTA Records!”

“I just wanted to change the world with my music. No better person to do that with than Travis,” jxdn says of the new music and signing.

“Angels & Demons” follows the 19-year-old’s self-released debut single “Comatose” which has found rapid success since its February release. “Comatose” has currently peaked at No. 27 on Billboard’s Hot Rock Chart, has amassed more than 20 million streams across platforms and reached 35+ global viral charts to date. Its music video has been seen more than six million times.
