Jaeden Zoe definitely has that je ne se pas effect going on for herself. She is a native California and a resident of Brooklyn N.Y.. When I spoke to her manager "Eddie Rosa" about involving her in the Elegant Hoodness Musical Program, my monthly showcase held at club Pyramid in the L.E.S. (downtown Manhattan). I was automatically pleased with her writing ability and catch pop hooks. Her look and sound was a bit different from the average competitor in our arena. But when I listened to her single entitled "Hello" I knew that the Elegant Hoodness audience and supporters would enjoy my new diamond in a rough finding. Dec 21, 2011 four days before Christmas, Jaeden Zoe tour the house down and placed 3rd in the competition. Giving you the reader now the opportunity to know her story and fall in love with her music. I caught up with Jaeden after the competition and discussed everything from being in love, California and the art of song writing. I present to you future pop sensation "JAEDEN ZOE"

A.D. THE GENERAL: So you’re originally from California? Born & raised? Is that where you acquired your sound?
