Biography

Active: 2010s
Country Of origin: Australia

Hayden James is a singer/songwriter and producer from Sydney, Australia, who creates R&B-influenced downtempo electronic pop music as well as more club-minded remixes. His songs typically feature lush synthesizers, intricate melodies, and sensual vocals, while his remixes for artists such as Odesza and Basecamp incorporate elements of trap, deep house, and U.K. garage.

James debuted in 2013 with the Balearic disco single "Permission to Love," released by Australian label Future Classic. The track earned extensive radio airplay in Australia, and soon became the centerpiece of James' self-titled five-song EP, which also featured the single "Embrace." Following extensive touring and remixes, James released "Something About You," which gained more Australian airplay as well as charting in several European countries. "Just a Lover" was released in 2016, followed by 2017's "Numb" (featuring Graace), which was certified platinum in Australia. Also that year, James co-wrote and performed on "Déjà Vu," a song from Katy Perry's Witness album. "Just Friends" (with Boy Matthews) appeared in 2018.

In spring 2019, James issued the single "Nowhere to Go" -- a collaboration with L.A.-based Australian electronic duo NAATIONS -- a month ahead of his debut LP, Between Us. The album was released in June, followed by a summer tour of Australia and New Zealand, as well as a U.S. tour in the fall. ~ Paul Simpson~ Rovi
