Following the release of ‘Something About You’, Hayden James played sold out venues world-wide while producing tracks for Katy Perry. 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 headline tour of North America and attracted more media interest, with Hayden’s interviews drawing fans to his easy-going nature and sense of humour as well as his music.
Hit singles “Better Together” featuring Running Touch and ‘Just Friends’ featuring singer Boy Matthews sealed 2018 as Hayden James’ break out year, leading into his long-awaited debut album ‘Between Us’ in June 2019 which cemented Hayden as one of Australia’s most influential pop producers. The wellreceived mixture of energetic dance floor cuts and downtempo tunes features artists such as NAATIONS and Panama. In the same year, Splendour in the Grass saw the unveiling of his brand-new live show, kicking off a world tour, with this success leading to an ARIA Nomination for Best Male Artist.
2021 was a standout with collaborations including the likes of Gorgon City, Nat Dunn, Crooked Colours and Yaeger. The producer is also working on his highly anticipated second album to be followed by Hayden’s most ambitious and biggest Australian, N. American and European headline tour & festival run to date.
