Korea-based-Kiwi-via-London Electronica – Original music from Stephen Hay

For A Time

“For A Time” EP now FREE


I can’t believe it’s been 5 months since I released my EP! It was amazing to see the videos being shared like crazy online, thanks to everyone who helped me promote it. Here’s two things I’ve noticed over the last while:

  • People like to consume music via youtube, and are a lot less likely to buy/download mp3’s
  • My taste in music has changed dramatically since I wrote and produced this EP

I’m getting into electronic music in a pretty big way, and even some alternative hip hop (who would have known??). This means the music I’ll be producing next will sound quite different to my humble ‘alternative-pop’ beginnings. I’m still learning how to make electronic music (and there is a LOT to learn!) so I’m not committing to any sort of release date, but I thought in the meantime I’d make “For A Time” available for free. I want to give casual listeners a chance to get into it, and make sure everybody who already has has the thing on their ipod/phone. As always, please share it on facebook, or even better, with a friend you think would like it. I’m really looking forward to showing you some of the new music I’m working on, so watch this space!




“For A Time” EP out now


I’m super excited to announce my debut EP “For A Time” is now officially available! You can get hold of it on my bandcamp page, where you’ll also get a beautiful 14-page digital booklet with lyrics and some behind-the-scenes photos. I’ve also uploaded last two music videos to my youtube channel, so go check them out and share them with all your friends. Yep, ALL of them. And for convenience’s sake, the EP is also available on iTunes and Spotify (minus the digital booklet and lyrics) if that’s easier for you.

Again, a massive thank you to everyone who’s been involved in some way, and for everyone who came down to the the EP launch. I honestly could not have pulled this off on my own. Thanks!


Second Video Online

I just posted the second video from my “For A Time” EP / video series.  Hope you like it – 1000 points if you can spot the pigeon!

Really excited about my EP launch tomorrow! Rehearsals have been great and my band & I have worked really hard to make the songs sound huge. See you there.
