A Real Indie Folk Hero

Hot news! Galesburg and Strange News have announced the return of Hayden. The indie folkster will be in New Zealand crafting his magic in both Auckland and Wellington later this March. Fresh from touring across Europe with The National and prior to touring the US with Feist, Hayden is ducking down under to pedal his fifth studio album In Field & Town.

If you are unfamiliar with Hayden then here is some background. Hayden Dresser hails from Toronto, Canada, and shares a record label with fellow Canadian songstress Basia Bulat. Since 1995 Hayden has released five full-length LPs, his latest In Field & Town, however, marks his return after a four-year absence. Critics worldwide have jumped all over it, The Onion proudly proclaiming that "his ragged, harrowing concoction of acoustic gentility and electric anarchy stands as a genre all its own".

Since 1995 Hayden has shown the world his exceptional talent as both a musician and songwriter. His folk ramblings and wavering falsetto have drawn comparisons to Neil Young and Leonard Cohen, allowing audiences young and old to appreciate his often-intimate performances.

Tickets are $25 plus booking fee from Slow Boat Records in Wellington and Real Groovy in Auckland.
