2023 has been a productive year for “Emerging Talent” Hayden Phillis. Although his parents met at the Tamworth Country Music Festival way back in the mid-90s, Hayden hadn’t played the festival before a last-minute decision in January 2023 brought him to Tamworth.

Since then, Hayden hasn’t stopped to take a breath; working on his “guitar craft” with Jeremy Minett (Max Jackson, The Viper Creek Band), developing his “songwriting craft” with Kevin Welch (“one of the best songwriters in America” Rolling Stone Magazine) and building his “performance craft” playing almost every weekend in venues near his Southern Sydney home and travelling to events & festivals across NSW.

Also in 2023, Hayden “found his tribe” completing the CMAA Academy of Country Music Junior Program in July and was recently awarded Regional 1st Place (Secondary Age Category) in the Australian National Busking Championships. At just 16-years-old Hayden is taking big strides.

Hayden’s sound leans into modern country but tends to engage anyone who enjoys acoustic music with an authentic story. Expect a catalogue including celebrated Australian Storytellers, Americana and when the mood is right a splash of Pop, Folk or Soul!
