Much like an author, the Michigan-born singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer Hayd, crystallizes life’s most important moments with unfiltered candour set to a warm soundtrack of sparse piano and guitar.
To bring this vision to life, Hayd watched hundreds of hours of YouTube production tutorials and immersed himself in recording as a kid. While enrolled in a local Michigan community college, he continued to write and produce out of his bedroom.
Fashioning a vivid and vibrant signature style, he received early support from influential curator 7Clouds and independent label and distributor Proximity.
His 2019 debut single “Vacant Eyes” broke the million-stream mark followed by fan favourites “Superhero” at over 16.7 million Spotify streams and “Suffocate” at over 17.7 million Spotify streams.
After snippets went viral, his 2020 single “Changes”, which was written and produced entirely by Hayd, has racked up over 232.8 million streams worldwide and set the stage for more.
Since then, he has put out his debut Changes – EP, which is a collection of songs inspired by personal experiences and is a culmination of Hayd’s signature mellow style driven by brutally honest and emotional lyrics, raw vocals, and accompanied by a soft and simple production. The EP includes previously released tracks “Closure”( which approached 10 million views on TikTok pre-release), “Airplane Mode”, “Changes”, “Head In The Clouds, “The Idea of You”, and “Faces”.
