Melbourne-based indie folk singer, songwriter and producer Hayden Calnin chooses to swim instead of sink in his optimistic new song “I Believe In Something More.” The single is off his forthcoming full-length album, A Turning of the Tide, out September 15th. Listen to “I Believe In Something More”  HERE.

Hayden strikes a balance between acoustic folk eloquence and otherworldly production on this emotionally resonant and sonically rich upcoming set of recordings. When discussing the meaning behind “I Believe in Something More,” he shares, “it’s about adjusting to a new living environment and pulling yourself out of a dark time to do so.”

Over the years, the Australian singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist has released projects at a prolific pace, including his two-LP series—Cut Love, Pt. 1 and Cut Love, Pt. 2 (2016), the 2019 fan-favorite EP A Life You Would Choose, and the 2021 full-length What It Means To Be Human, which was named on American Songwriter’s  “The 41 Best Albums of 2021” and received a 9.4/10 from Atwood. He has shared the stage with the likes of Matt Corby, Tom Odell, and The Antlers, and his music has been featured on a slew of TV series and movie soundtracks, including the UK trailer for the Academy Award-nominated film Room. He also co-wrote “Falling Up” for Dean Lewis and has produced on records for Didirri, Harrison Storm, Riley Pearce, and more. At the top of 2022 and in the wake of a breakup, he left Melbourne for a creative hideaway in Rye Ocean Beach to create his new EP and forthcoming full-length album A Turning of the Tide. There he absorbed the inspiration of his surroundings and composed on acoustic guitar coming out on the other side of isolation with the ability to connect more than ever before.
