Jadyn Douglas (Previously known as Jadyn Maria) was born April 20, 1985. She is a Puerto Rican singer-songwriter. At the age of seventeen, Jadyn was signed to EMI/CMG. After shooting an Herbal Essences commercial (deemed a bit too "racy" for the CCM market) and filming the "Split Ends" episode of "What I Like About You" (starring Amanda Bynes), she was released from her deal. In 2008 she signed a publishing deal with Universal Music Publishing Group. Her publisher (who also represented Ne-Yo) set up a meeting for Jadyn to go to Compound in Atlanta to write/record some original material. She quickly received a call/contract and ended up signing as the first artist on Ne-Yo's Compound Entertainment label in 2008. After business and creative differences, Jadyn left Compound Ent and Universal Music Group to return to her southern roots of Country. Jadyn Douglas started a soul/country/pop trio with her sister (Jaclyn) and brother in law (Blake) called Arten Way. They are currently wrapping up their first independent EP titled "Another Thing Coming", expected to release April of 2015. In 2011 Jadyn Douglas signed with Innovative Artists NY (The Acting/Commercial Agency responsible for giving Amanda Seyfried and Channing Tatum their starts). Jadyn has landed roles in TV/Movies such as "Lullaby" (featuring Amy Adams, Garrett Hedlund and Terrence Howard), "Greetings From Tim Buckley" (featuring Penn Badgley and Imogen Poots), The "Brooklyn Heights" episode of "Taxi Brooklyn", etc.
