Multi-instrumentalist and San Francisco native Hayden Everett drops introspective new single “Redwoods.” Hayden also announces his debut Nettwerk EP Silver Line – coming early next year.
“I wrote Redwoods the day of a really tough breakup. The song captures the tension of knowing I had to end it, while swallowing the pain of losing my best friend in her in the process. This is certainly the most raw song I’ve ever written,” says Hayden.
He later continues “The inner dialogue that was going on in my head spilled out on the page without a second thought, and the gut wrenching melody came as quickly as the words and seemed to even capture the emotion more profoundly than lyrics could. The doubt and back and forth wondering was all consuming and Redwoods was the direct outpour and product of those thoughts and feelings.”
During January 2022, he crossed the pond and holed up in London where he drafted the framework of what would become Silver Line. In between writing, he backpacked alone through the Slovenian Alps, explored the French Alps, and trekked through the Faroe islands. For the first time, he opted to self-produce, finishing up the record in San Diego and Nashville.
“I was filling the tank, so I would have stories to tell,” he notes. “The music was inspired by what I was seeing and doing. There was a lot of creating and a lot of living.”
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 EP, Silver Line [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.”
