Need a gift for a gifted musician?
The ink lines that would shape Hayden and his budding musical career were drawn in his teen years after his father gave him a guitar at age 14. He hasn’t gone a day since without playing it. Dabbling in bands through his teen years led him to add drums and piano to his repertoire, until at the age of 17 he finally decided to take to the vocals.
In his early 20’s a degree in film, with a major in sound design became Hayden’s entry point into the world of music production. From here on it was only natural that Hayden would begin recording his own songs at home.
With a varied list of musical influences, including artists such as Low, The Swell Season, DeYarmond Edison and genres ranging from 1930s rock ‘n’ roll to electronica, Hayden’s music manifests itself as honest, storytelling folk with a progressive edge. Heartfelt vocals showcase a range that walks a steady pace from sweet, tip toeing falsettos to warm and husky lower ranges that belt out raw, gut wrenching lyrics. His vocals dance sincerely over folk/electro soundscapes that feel almost other worldly.
