HaydenGoSeek announces new single “Never Forget”
Following a deeply creative period in lockdown, Cheap Fakes frontman Hayden Andrews is emerging with the new release from his exquisite solo project HaydenGoSeek on 13th May.
Never Forget has an upbeat coastal feel with the prominent sun-soaked reggae Hayden is revered for. His smooth as silk vocals glide playfully over the jovial acoustic accompaniment, with lyrics that reflect his masterful storytelling ability.
Sweetly sad and deeply moving, the most touching aspect of the song is the story that inspired it. Hayden’s good friend ‘Batchy’ was diagnosed with terminal cancer in 2021 and advised that he had only 6 months to live.
Batchy decided to host a living wake for himself. He founded a weekend to remember at a beautiful resort in Port Douglas with 43 of his best mates, including Hayden. He treated everyone to an incredible array of delicious food and unlimited alcohol for 3 glorious days.
It was an unforgettable weekend that paid a fitting tribute to his life. Each guest received a stubby cooler printed with Batchy’s mantra for living:
‘Live each day to the most, dance like no one is watching, hold your loved ones close, and never be afraid to speak your mind. Batchy loves you.’
After the weekend, Batchy asked Hayden to write a song about the weekend, and Never Forget was born. Recorded with Scotty French at Love St Studios, it’s instilled with the painful nostalgia of losing a friend yet laced with hope and encouragement to live a life of meaning.
One of the most exciting and widely loved frontmen in Australian roots music, Hayden is a genre-hopping, multi-instrumentalist with a string of highly praised releases, international tours, and festival shows under his belt.
HaydenGoSeek is an intriguing blend of sun-soaked pop and deep Americana sounds blended with the signature reggae flavors that he is renowned for.

Exclusive Interview: Rising Artist Awall MG
Hello Awall MG, Thanks for coming to Honk Magazine to talk about your career.
Tell us a little more about when you first got into music?
I’ve been around music since I was born. My family is a pretty musical family so I was always surrounded by it. My dad had his own studio where the first famous person I met was Gladys Knight and the pips. That was my very first introduction to the musical environment. By 2 years old I had my first keyboard by 3 I was banging on drums and it kinda just kept going from there.
If you could describe your sound/style in one word, what would it be and why?
VIBES! Most of my songs I make are from a real perspective but I make it to where it just sounds good and it cultivates the listeners ears to take em to a place where they can relate but also feel good about
What would you say to any aspiring recording artists who look up to your work?
I would say never give up on what you love most. That means fight through any obstacle life gives cause it only happened to make you a stronger person And never put all your eggs in one basket!
What quote or mantra do you live by?
LIVE GREAT TO BECOME GREATER.
That’s my slogan for my company Live Great Productions. It basically says like we are living to be great but once you make it go beyond that and then beyond that too!
What is your hobby outside of music?
When I’m not doing music I’m usually playing video games. I just got into the twitch community. I play basketball and football on a recreational level ..and cooking I love to cook
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
In 5 years I’m gonna be one of those names that you see in the big festivals like Rolling Loud or Coachella. I’ll be engineering still but super exclusively cause I really see myself as one the next best Producer/Artist on the come up.
Do you have anything new or upcoming we can expect to see from you?
I got lots of singles I’m dropping in 2022 along with visuals of course and doing more shows in the ATL scene. Also as a Producer I’ll be launching my website this month so the public can buy them. Before I was just making beats exclusively in front of them.
What is the inspiration behind your latest song?
My last song OWN is about two girls really. One girl I dated for about 3 years then we went our separate ways.. the other girl I met around Thanksgiving of 2021 thinking she could be the one cause the new girl I really liked a lot but somehow we drifted and I can’t lie that shxt was hurting my soul so that’s why I say I’m on my own and it probably better off that way until I meet Ms Right
What are your “5 things I wish someone told me when I first started” and why. Please share a story or example for each.
Get a internship Right after school: I didn’t start interning at other studios till probably 4 years after I graduated from Music School..No regrets about it but it could have sped my process up and learned more earlier
Don’t be Afraid To Make Mistakes but don’t make it happen Twice: When I first started working at Patchwerk Studio I recorded Cocoa Vango.He was the first major artist I got to work with there. The session was probably my worst ever. He was very frustrated with me the whole time but he knew I was new so it just went with the flow…That session taught me things I should be doing and I never made a mistake like that again..Which is why I’m still at Patchwerk till this day.
BE VERSATILE: I Engineer both studio and live. I’m an Artist. I’m Also a musician of 7 different instruments (Drums, Piano, flute, baritone, sax guitar and bass) and a producer and learning how to DJ. Doing all those things made me stand out vs ppl who just engineer or just produce.. I’m a one stop shop basically and ppl these days love that. And learning one skill helped me learned another along the way
GET OUT THE BEDROOM: For a while I was the producer who made beats And posted it in a beat store and just showed off on social media.. IT GOT ME NOWHERE. I still had to work a regular job and live in my parents house.. When I started networking at different events or applying to studios that’s when life changed quickly.. More ppl were hearing me which grew my outside presence but also my social media at the same time. Now I’m in rooms with major Artists getting paid way more and literally paying everything just by creating music
GET RID OF SELF DOUBT: I used to compare myself to others like my music doesn’t sound like theirs or wondering if ppl gonna like what I put out. All that self doubt just made me think too much instead of having fun… The moment I got major confidence for myself is when the music was sounding good ppl were buying beats that I made quickly… and that confidence transfers to others now they wanna give you a chance with a bigger deal
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out” ?
Just make sure whatever you doing that you love it..Cause I’ve burned myself out a couple of times but I love music so much I was able to find something to learn or something new out my comfort zone that made me fall in love with it like it’s my first time making music
