It took award-winning music producer Hayden James one song to become a sound of the Australian summer. ‘Something About You’, released in the heat of December 2014 by Future Classic, lit up the pop music scene and gained Gold Certification in Australia. Today the artist’s electronic pop music has hooked a global audience on his sound, with a collection that has amassed over half a billion streams.
October 2017 marked the release of ‘Numb’ featuring GRAACE, which scored Platinum certification in Australia and landed at #32 on Triple J’s Hottest 100. This kicked off a massive North American headline tour, where Hayden drew in fans with his easy-going nature, sense of humour as well as his music.
Hit singles “Better Together” featuring Running Touch and ”Just Friends” featuring Boy Matthews sealed 2018 as Hayden James’ break out year, leading into his long-awaited debut album ‘Between Us’ in June 2019. The mixture of energetic dance floor cuts and down-tempo tunes features artists such as NAATIONS and Panama.
In the same year, he unveiled a brand new live show at Splendour in the Grass that kicked off a world tour and lead to an ARIA Nomination for Best Male Artist.
