about

Canadian Singer, Songwriter & Producer, Jaidene Veda, has completed her fifth successful crowd sourcing effort in order to bring her latest labour of love, "HEART OF GOLD", to life. Already recognized by Veda's longstanding community as her most dynamic, raw and honest album yet, the fan funded project boasts the majestic sound of a live String Quartet and a massive team of live Jazz players, Singer/Songwriters and co producers. Veda's signature silky voice & potent lyrical intimacy are at the forefront throughout.

Her brilliant, veteran production team covers everything from deep house to nu jazz, downtempo, trip hop/hip hop soul, and authentic string serenades elevate both a reprise of the title track as well as a stunning cover of Björk's "ALL IS FULL OF LOVE". A hand full of intricate vocal duets also stand out & extend the heartfelt artistry behind the album's story.

Songs & tempos for every mood, simply put, pure gold.

Track Name: 01 YOUR LOVE From P60 & J.Veda ft S.E.Williams (veda nu jazz vocal)
you're sweet like subtlety
but warm like a summer breeze
you bring out the best in me
when you bested me, protected me, redirected me

your love, your love, your love is all the love i need
your love, your love, your love is the best of me
there is no rest for me, if you're not here with me
my love, my love, my love is nothing without your love

you're deep as poetry
you're free as the roaring seas
you resonate from a place so pure
it caresses me, silences me, nearly arrests me
Track Name: 02 NEW DAY Fuminori Kagajo & J.Veda (veda tech vocal)
i can read, i can feel, i can see without crying
i can sing, i can breathe, i can smile without trying
you may not fully believe that i felt you lying
every day i was i with you i felt myself dying
you can't touch my body, without knowing my soul
you can't have my body, without loving me whole

i will rise from the ashes
no more pride or good intentions
now i rise like the phoenix
no more goodbyes
just my good senses

cause it's a new day, a new day (a new day)
and i’ll find my way home, i’ll find my way home
Track Name: 03 SWEET LIFE From P60 & J.Veda (veda vocal)
wouldn't it be sweet, if i could rewind
back to the very, very, the very first time
wouldn't it be sweet, if i could undo
the very worst things, i witnessed you do
wouldn't it be sweet, if i had seen through
your insecurity, masked as egocentric you
oh wouldn't it it be sweet, if i had realized
every time you cried, was a lie

could they blame me, for crossing the world
in search of a sweet, sweet life
couldn't save me, from burning my world
it was a sweet, sweet lie
it was the very worst kind
Track Name: 04 TAKE ME HOME Omotani & J.Veda ft Malcolm Aiken (veda nu jazz vocal)
take me home
show me where you wanna go
you feel like home

do you know where i'm from
show me more, tell me all the ways to explore
cause i want more, like when you lift me off the floor
spinnin' butterflies, ya' soul size style
now i’m hypnotized, not merely mesmerized
it's no surprise that you know that i'm shy

small girl, small world, big fire
no words, just heart, all fight
Track Name: 05 CRIMINAL Pablo Martinez & J.Veda ft Sió (veda siren vocal)
you made me fool my sisters, friends, worse
you made me you call you Mr, best friend, worst
moonlight poisoned, scratching eyes blinded by you,
save me, save her, 911 and tattoos

this, we, me, it was criminal
him, you, he, such a criminal
high heels high, now pink is criminal
why lie, why, damn, how criminal

*you made me stab my sister, in her chest
you made a fool of me now I will not rest
sunsets tainted, I'm breathing fire coz you
played me, played her, left us fighting for you

(*Sió)
Track Name: 06 FRIDAY From P60 & J.Veda ft Lady C (veda siren vocal)
too many rules, too many fools, too many signs
to the many men, who taught me to love again
painting a future, where we'll be the best of friends

how 'bout on Friday, i’ll go dancing with my girls
how ‘bout on Friday, room for red lips and our curves
find me on Friday, i'll flirt only with my words
find me on Friday, please flirt with yours

too many faces, too many places, too many mazes
to the many men, i'll learn to love again
sculpting a future, when we'll be more than friends

*too many lies, i can't decide, which one i will buy
too many friends i’ve made from men
avoiding a future where love comes to bitter end

(*Lady C)
Track Name: 08 BELIEVE Master Mello & J.Veda ft Kafele Bandele (veda nu jazz vocal)
do you believe in me, cuz I believe in you
do you believe in me, cuz I believe in you

moments in places, forest of faces
memory of spaces in between relationships
we're supposed to be evolving, what lost battles are we solving 

hypnotized by stations, high strung styles and impatient
only fired up by sensations, always tied up yet evasive 
we're caught up in denial, no time to reconcile
Track Name: 09 YOU NEED TO KNOW N'Dinga Gaba & J.Veda (veda love letter)
years gone by, and i'm mellow
took a while, but i like life this pace
fears gone, bye, this is hello
to the life i dreamed into its place

hear the sigh (the sigh)
every breath you take is especially free
when time is promised to no one.

if i never told you, you're my reason
to turn a page, keep learning how to grow
you need to know...
if i never get to spend another season
watching your face, seeing how it glows
you need to know...

you need to know,
you need to know,
you need to know,
you are the reason i love life so
you need to know.
Track Name: 10 SUN KISSED LIFE St.Jovis & J.Veda ft Hosanna Littlebird (veda soleil vocal)
i'm grounded, sand soft at my feet
but i'm drifting, sea side,
such a familiar scene

you’re gifted, your hand is within my reach,
but you’re leaving me behind,
seeking unfamiliar scenes

i wish you a sun kissed life
i wish you dream filled nights
i want that for you,
i want that for all of you.
Track Name: 11 WE WORK BEST Anthony Nicholson & J.Veda (veda vocal reprise)
when we rework reflections, we work best as imperfections. . .
Track Name: 12 TICK TOCK Kriswontwo ft J.Veda (interlude)
sometimes it goes, sometimes it don't
but you never really know (tick tock)
in time we grow, in time we'll know
that you gotta let it go (tick tock)

dear nostalgic lovers, covers, ex lovers,
i weave you in and out of sounds
dear devoted healers, feelers, believers,
we need you now more than ever
don't you know, fear the the smoke’n’mirrors,
no war will end much cleaner

free yourselves in mind, vibe higher (vibe higher) vibe high.
Track Name: 13 HUMBLE PIE Pete Mo & J.Veda ft Ursula Rucker
i got another song to sing
another soul to save

lil humble pie, i
learn to the love the taste,
cuz i know these moments slowly pass me by

*mistakes i’ve made some, bad choices, some,
i’ve definitely chosen more than one,
swam in the pool of sorrow and self pity,
now and then, probably do it again, but when,
i self-heal, self-forgive, i can still love,
still live, cut myself a slice of...

*maybe you’d like me to lick my wounds perpetually,
hold on tight to the pain and the misery, but see,
i balance my sh** spiritually, adeptly,
don’t erase the past it’s my history,
i put it all in the pot, mix it completely, make
the latest, greatest. most beautiful-est me

(*Ursula Rucker)
Track Name: 14 THE LITTLE THINGS Pete Mo & J.Veda ft Kafele Bandele (interlude)
what if i sang to you when you and me were all alone
what if you talked to me while i fall asleep on the telephone
well if they showed us in every film, every song and solo
then we should explore all the sweetness of the chorus ringing, wrapping around us

it's the little things, that mean everything to me
composing melodies with every word, you speak to me
i see the little things, i feel the little things deeply
i couldn't overstate how they resonate ubiquitously
Track Name: 15 JUST BE ft John Bews
there is a song first
all the sounds that follow
then the words are unearthed

if there is heart first
all of the Art swallows
any nerve to silence being heard

are you feelin' me,
are you hearin' me
you need not see me,
you need not be with me
just feel this,
just hear this,
just be this
Track Name: 16 ALL IS FULL OF LOVE ft John Bews
You'll be given love
You'll be taken care of
You'll be given love
You have to trust it

Maybe not from the sources
You have poured yours
Maybe not from the directions
You are staring at

Twist your head around
It's all around you
All is full of love
All around you

All is full of love
You just ain't receiving
All is full of love
Your phone is off the hook
All is full of love
Your doors are all shut
All is full of love

All is full of love, all is full of love
All is full of love, all is full of love

(written by Björk)
Track Name: 17 HEART OF GOLD (strings serenade)
catch me on a good day, catch me on bad day
same old tongue tied twisted soul
leave me on Monday, find me on a Sunday
same young searching lifted soul
doubt is never good for, doubt has never worked for
every shifting shining soul
lucky but you want more, lucky if you'd search for
every single thing that ya' beautiful soul already knows

do you have a heart of gold
do you ever sell your soul

quicker than you planned it, quick but can you stand it
knowing that you're never the one in control
slower makes you panic, slower makes you manic
knowing that you're always the one in alone
clever as a good girl, clever as the next girl
every second ounce of trouble
never's not a good word, never is the last word
every single bursted bubble

do you have a heart of gold
do you ever sell your soul
Track Name: 18 HEART OF GOLD N'Dinga Gaba & J.Veda (veda naked vocal)
catch me on a good day, catch me on bad day
same old tongue tied twisted soul
leave me on Monday, find me on a Sunday
same young searching lifted soul
doubt is never good for, doubt has never worked for
every shifting shining soul
lucky but you want more, lucky if you'd search for
every single thing that ya' beautiful soul already knows

do you have a heart of gold
do you ever sell your soul

quicker than you planned it, quick but can you stand it
knowing that you're never the one in control
slower makes you panic, slower makes you manic
knowing that you're always the one in alone
clever as a good girl, clever as the next girl
every second ounce of trouble
never's not a good word, never is the last word
every single bursted bubble

do you have a heart of gold
do you ever sell your soul
