All of this experience has given Hayden a wealth of knowledge when it comes to songwriting and producing.

 

“I’ve learnt so much from touring around the world playing different styles of music. It's diversified my ear and enabled me to develop a better understanding of how music comes together.  It’s allowed me to clearly hear melodies, rhythms and production ideas necessary for performing, songwriting and producing in this modern era of music.”

 

Hayden's approach to music over the past decade has been heavily focused on Modern Music Production. Understanding mixing and audio engineering techniques are crucial in creating a truly "Unique" and modern song. Fortunately, Hayden has owned and operated professional recording studios both in Australia and the US for over 24 years. His studio's have state-of-the-art equipment and all the best mixing and instrument plugins needed to create the right sound.

 

Since 2017, Hayden moves back and forth between Australia and Hollywood, Los Angeles where he is the owner of MMS Studios. The studio concentrates on writing, mixing and producing pop and dance music.

 

He has also formed an original music group called MMS which features his incredibly beautiful and talented wife Alexa Jayne.
