Hayden James may have only released his first track in late June 2013, but he has already amassed millions of plays across Soundcloud and Youtube for his work.  Producing immense summer house jams with soulful and evocative vocals his music has stockpiled consistently rave reviews from the US, Europe and Australia alike, being labelled the “face of the new Australian production music scene”.  

 Hayden’s first single “Permission to Love” garnered worldwide love and attention hitting #1 most blogged on Hype Machine, as well as becoming the most played track on national broadcasting giant Triple J in Australia.  His debut EP out on tastemaker label Future Classic garnered much love worldwide, but didn’t’ prepare the indie label for the success Hayden would have with hit single "Something About You", released early 2015 on the label’s yearly compilation album. 

This summer also saw Hayden hitting the road, playing for a string of sell out venues on his national “Something About You” tour, subsequently jetting off to the Northern Hemisphere for his debut headline US tour, including his first performance ever at the infamous Coachella festival.
