20th anniversary tour extended nationally - tickets on sale Friday, June 10
2nd pressing of limited-edition vinyl re-issued
Nostalgic EILF video released for song “Almost Everything”
Monday, June 6, 2016 // Toronto, ON – With an incredible outpouring of support (and demand) from fans across the country, Hayden has announced plans to bring his acclaimed EILF20 solo tour across Canada in September. For the newly announced dates, the album will be made available as a limited edition teal-coloured vinyl, through his own Hardwood Records.
To many, Everything I Long For is a classic record, a coming-of-age debut album (which was recently awarded Gold status in Canada) that kick-started a long, prolific, and storied career for one of Canada’s most respected songwriters. On its 20th anniversary, Hayden acknowledged the critical role that Everything I Long For played in not only his life as a musician but in the unexpected life it took among music fans who still celebrate its influence more than two decades later.

“Because making new music is always my priority, and I'm suspicious of nostalgia, looking back twenty years was a reluctant experiment,” Hayden explains. “However, after completing those first shows in April and putting the re-issue together, I realized that not only did I really enjoy doing it but that this era of my music has special significance to a certain group of people. This process has not only been my way of comprehending that impact but it's been a way for me to say thank you for supporting me for all these years.”
Over the course of more than twenty years, Hayden has written and recorded 8 full-length albums and a series of EP and singles, most of which were self-produced and recorded in his own home studio. An artist biographical timeline can be viewed and downloaded, here.
The EILF20 solo tour kicks off in Halifax, NS on September 21, ending in Victoria, BC on October 5 (full list of dates below). The tour, which Exclaim! rated 9/10, will see Hayden performing much of the album - including material rarely (if never) previously performed live - as well as songs from throughout his extensive and acclaimed recording career. In addition, plans for the annual benefit concert Dream Serenade at Toronto’s Massey Hall, a concert curated and presented by Hayden and his wife Christie Greyerbiehl, in support of Toronto children with developmental disabilities and their families and caregivers, have been announced for October 22, 2016
