Leading West End, Broadway and Australian actor Hayden Tee today released his brand-new music video 7 Years, a cover of Danish soul-pop band Lukas Graham. The song is a reflection upon front man Luke Forchhmmer’s life so far and what he hopes to achieve in the future.

Hayden illustrates this passing of time using his skills as a seasoned make-up artist, ageing into the 60-year-old at the conclusion of the song.

Says Hayden, “I have always been inspired by the art of the “quick change” and I wanted to challenge myself to complete a look in a short period of time utilising as many of my skills at once as possible. Why not sing a song about it at the same time?

Hayden began his professional life as a talented make-up artist working in the cosmetic industry in New York and the UK, most notably the key artist for 14 designers at New York fashion week. Make-up and fashion have continued to be a creative outlet for Hayden, who takes great joy in transforming himself into the characters he plays.

With numerous musical theatre credits to his name spanning many Australian and international productions, Hayden is best known on the stage for his award-winning portrayal of Javert in the Australian, Broadway and West End productions of Les Misérables.
