At the age of 16, he started songwriting and learning to produce his own music, and by the age of 18 he had written and recorded his first EP: Lion’s Breath. Fascinated by 80’s style synth-pop and new dance music, Hayden has created a dreamy, fun and cinematic sound that rings out with a powerful and punchy melody. Inspired by artists like Bibi Bourelly and Jon Bellion, Hayden’s music will not only make you want to shake, but will also brighten your day and warm your heart. Founder of MusicGivesYYC, Hayden works to create opportunities for young kids to pursue a dream in music.
