Darren Hayman Concert

Darren Hayman is a thoughtful, concise and detailed songwriter. He eschews the big, the bright and the loud for the small, twisted and lost. For 15 years, and over 14 albums, Hayman has taken a singular and erratic route through England’s tired and heartbroken underbelly.
Hayman first made a name for himself as the lead singer and main songwriter in UK indie rock band Hefner, who were big favourites of the late John Peel. The band split in 2002, and since then he has produced electronic projects, solo albums, a concept album based on Matthew Hopkins’s witch trials and the English Civil War, and January Songs, a project to write, record and release a song for every day of the month, collaborating with other musicians.
His most recent album Bugbears was released in 2013 as a companion piece to the concept album, The Violence. It was his first with his backing band The Short Parliament.
