Kicking off the month of October, Hayden James brought one particular of the most phenomenal performances to Webster Hall, one particular of New York City’s most historic reside music venues. A entirely sold out show, it was a spectacular evening complete of his uniquely curated dance music sounds and one particular of the most lively crowds we’ve ever been a component of.
The Australian producer took off with his musical profession back in 2013 with the release of “Permission To Really like,” and due to the fact then he’s only flourished inside the electronic music globe. As his presence evolved, prominent artists like ODESZA and Disclosure started to very admire his operate, and each and every single that he released more than the years gained tremendous recognition from fans all about the globe. Ever due to the fact “NUMB” ft. GRAACE became a hit back in 2017, he left the notion of any future projects up in the air, but we had been all thankfully blessed with the announcement of his debut studio album, In between Us earlier this year.
Like quite a few artists, Hayden James followed his very-anticipated album release with an accompanying tour, which not too long ago took spot all through our continent’s finest cities. His ‘Between Us’ North American Tour was meant to beautifully reflect the story behind the album in a reside music setting, and he did so substantially. We got the likelihood to be a component of the tour’s final quit at Webster Hall in the city that under no circumstances sleeps, and it was very possibly the very best show of the year.
As one particular of the initial shows that has taken spot at Webster Hall due to the fact its grand 2019 re-opening, there’s no explanation as to why the occasion was totally sold out other than the truth that Hayden James’ music is just that inspiring. His residence-heavy sound and evocative vocals in each and every track has moved the lives of quite a few listeners, and it positive had us all moving on the dancefloor in the course of this current overall performance. The initial component of the show heavily incorporated additional of the In between Us story line, portraying tracks like “Feelin,” “Nowhere To Go,” and “Better Collectively,” although the later half became additional of a freestyle overall performance as he mixed in oldies like “Just a Lover” and his personal twist on ODESZA’s “Say My Name.”
All evening extended, Hayden James managed to fill just about every corner of the venue with absolutely nothing but electrifying vibes and had us all jamming along to his sonically uplifting tunes. All through the show, he even brought out singer/songwriter Boy Matthews to sing along to “Just Friends” and a handful of of the other tracks he’s been featured on. Ending the show with “Between Us” as an ode to the complete project was such a magical way to close out the North American portion of the tour. Nonetheless buzzing from his overall performance and wishing we could relive the evening, we can not wait for Hayden James to return to the Major Apple!
