Arts & Crafts to release internationally-celebrated
Four years is a long time to be away, so to help celebrate his exit from hibernation, Hayden will be embarking on a tour of small, very unique venues around Ontario in February before heading out on a North American tour in March. As part of Hayden’s Ontario dates he will perform a series of intimate shows in three Toronto neighbourhood venues, chosen by Hayden for reasons only he knows. All tour dates and ticket purchase links are listed below.
Since his emergence from Toronto’s burgeoning alternative scene with 1995’s now iconic Everything I Long For, Hayden has intrigued, both for his highly introspective personality and musical independence – performing most instruments on his records and almost always engineering, mixing, and producing as well as self-releasing on his own label, Hardwood Records.
Those skills and tendencies are again showcased on Us Alone, a sonically rich, beautifully textured return to form. Lyrically, Hayden also continues his strength in crafting stories that will range from the highly autobiographical (“Almost Everything”) to strangely unsettling (“Just Give Me A Name”), and goes as far as leaving specific direction of what to do with his body when he dies (“Instructions”).
Us Alone is a subtle, emotional and sonically warm journey written and performed by one of Canada’s most consistent artists. A welcome addition to a brilliant career.
