MULTI-INSTRUMENTALIST HAYDEN EVERETT DROPS ENVIRONMENTALLY-DRIVEN NEW SINGLE “NEPTUNE”; SIGNS TO NETTWERK
October 7, 2022 BY Jason Currell
Multi-instrumentalist and San Francisco native Hayden Everett drops emotional new track “Neptune” – his debut release since signing to Nettwerk.
“Neptune” is a dialogue between humans and the earth. Hayden says, “Oftentimes it feels like we’ve gone too far and the damage is irreversible. This song captures Earth’s frustration with peoples’ constant disregard for the irreversible harm of their actions.”
During January 2022, he crossed the pond and holed up in London, where he drafted the framework of what would become some of his most environmentally-driven music to date. In between writing, he backpacked alone through the Slovenian Alps, explored the French Alps, and trekked through the Faroe islands. He opted to self-produce, finishing up the record in San Diego and Nashville. Hayden’s time backpacking only furthered his connection to the environment and his mission to spread awareness about the importance of protecting Earth.
He pleads, “How can we keep ignoring the harms of our actions when she gives us so much? Why can’t we observe the beauty and let it spur us to protect it rather than exploit it? I imagine Earth would be relieved if we found a new home.”
Hayden Everett embraces change in his music. The California singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer infuses cinematic soundscapes with pensive, poetic, and personal observations as if chronicling his growth in real-time over a soundtrack of indie and alternative laced with just the right amount of jazz.
Everett unveiled his self-titled debut EP in 2019, followed by 2021’s Kennecott EP. After generating millions of streams and earning widespread acclaim from Wonderland., Atwood Magazine, The Line of Best Fit, Ones To Watch, and more, he catalogs a season of growth on his upcoming music [Nettwerk Music Group].
“I’ve changed a lot this year,” he affirms. “I feel things more deeply. My quest is for people to hear my music and feel more human. I have more questions now, which is good. I know that I know less. It’s important to think more. I’ve figured out how to live in a way that fosters growth.”
