When Hayden James released “Permission to Love” in 2013, the music world tilted its ear towards Australia, captivated by the emotive and sophisticated sounds emanating from a fresh new artist. Fast forward to today, and James has not only sustained but magnified that initial spark into a blazing career, characterized by hits like “Something About You” and a co-writing credit on Katy Perry’s “Déjà Vu.”
Hayden’s music isn’t just heard; it’s felt. His tracks, often inspired by personal experiences, such as his relationship with his wife, whom he met in a club during one of his first shows, invite listeners into his world, offering a glimpse into the man behind the melody. His recent album, “LIFTED,” is a testament to his evolution as an artist, showcasing a vibrant, dance-oriented energy while maintaining the emotive, story-telling essence that fans have come to adore.
