Born and raised on a ranch in Wyoming, Paden developed his love for Country and Gospel music at an early age.  Although he began songwriting in high school, it was in college that he collaborated with musician friends to co-write most of the tracks on his debut Christian/Gospel album, Just Breathe.  
      Following a successful album release, Paden performed and promoted his music, landing a coveted spot on the soundtrack of the Christian film, Once Upon A Summer.  Eventually, while filming a military tribute music video, he came to the decision that he wanted to serve his country and enlisted in the military.
      Currently, while serving active-duty, Paden continues to write new music and perform at local venues.  Despite his love for Christian/Gospel music, he plans to take his next album in a new direction, bringing his crooning, indie sound to the world of Country/Soul.
