Reviews are coming in for Keep It Movin’!

“As a whole, Keep It Movin’ has a motivational spirit to it. Jaden’s voice is uplifting and one-of-a-kind, having a quality about it that is uplifting and honest. Each song compliments the next, while still holding space for itself on the album. Transitions between tracks feel seamless, making the collection easy to listen to in its entirety.”-Cait Deane, The Jamwich, June 7, 2018

“The party gets started nice and easy with the space jams of “Last Chair,” the opening track, where Jaden layers sweet vocals over synth and masterful guitar work. The album closes with the soaring “First Chair,” where the band matches her guitar wizardry with an electro-pop explosion of keyboards, synthesizer, and a killer rhythm section that demands you get up and dance.In between, each band member gets to stretch their wings on instrumentals ripe with syncopated beats with nary a dull moment to be had, including on “Outer Lands,” where Adam Deitch of Lettuce and Break Science contributed his drum magic.” – Dalia Jakubauskas,, May 3, 2018

“The new record is, in my critical opinion, straight fire. Like a conflagration kind of fire — world-ending fire. Punchy, edgy, forward thinking and riddled with the eye-popping melodies and guitar licks that have made Jaden famous in these parts…And I gotta say … this record deserves a place next to releases from some of the top bands in the genre, like the Motet, the Nth Power, Lettuce, Umphrey’s McGee and others.”

“Jaden Carlson, born and raised in Boulder, Colorado is known around the Boulder-Denver music scene as a young guitar prodigy who can really shred. Jaden’s undeniable wizardly guitar skills have gained her respect and a shining spotlight in the scene- and all of this before she was even a teenager! Today, at the age of seventeen, she is leading JCB into new heights while experimenting with hip-hop, synth-pop, and electro-funk jams. She has played a huge role in bringing Keep It Moving to fruition, from leading the band with vocals, guitar, and keys to producing the new record. “

“Blasting out of Boulder, Colorado, the Jaden Carlson Band are a 4 piece power funk group making giant waves in 2018. Keep It Movin’ explores hip-hop, synth-pop and electro-funk, showcasing JCB’s eagerness towards new soundscapes. Led by female guitarist, vocalist, keyboardist and producer Jaden Carlson, drummer Eric Imbrosciano, pianist Chris Beck and bassist Fred Reisen, each member brings a dynamic stage presence that makes every performance explosive and unique. Recently joining the latest addition of one of our favorite festivals, Summer Camp, we’re excited to see the Jaden Carlson Band fan base grow even more.”
