After 3 short years since releasing his first track, Hayden James has created his own imprint on the global music community with a sound like no other. Straight off the mark Hayden’s music circulated through Australia’s electronic dance music populace accumulating tens of millions of plays across SoundCloud and YouTube. His individualistic approach to producing delicate yet uplifting summer anthems featuring euphonious and evocative vocals quickly allowed him to find his niche. Today, Hayden leads the way for Australian musicians with a sound incomparable and inimitable to any artists before him.
In 2016, fans were treated to Hayden’s follow-up single ‘Just a Lover’. The track revisits his passionate romantic side and extends out an androgynous vocal referring to a temporary lover who has a strong hold over someone. With beautifully crafted harmonies and a feeling everyone can relate too, the subliminal lust and desire within this song extends out to audiences and once again pulls at their adoring heartstrings. Since its release, ‘Just a Lover’ has reached almost 11 million plays on Spotify alone, not to mention the millions of plays and downloads on SoundCloud, YouTube, Shazam and iTunes. The widespread excitement that stemmed from the release of ‘Just A Lover’ sent Hayden back on the road for his World Tour shortly after headlining Australia’s most distinguished festival Splendour in The Grass.
With no intention of slowing down anytime soon, 2017 has been yet another whirlwind of a year for Hayden as he returned with his single ‘NUMB’ featuring Australian singer GRAACE. The single went to #1 on the iTunes ‘Top Electronic Songs’ chart and #1 on Hype Machine charts.
