Rekindling his musical ambitions, Thomas Hayes allowed the HAYES concept to evolve through collaborations with songwriters, producers and artists he admires. August 2019 saw the release of his debut “Where I Belong” with Nico & Vinz. Mugisho collaboration “Now or Never” followed in November. The former, a song about finding your place in the world, and the latter, a song about taking risks - be they romantic or not - both reflect HAYES' attitude to life.
"You have to seize opportunities, do your best, without worrying what others will think. A lot of people think they know who I am, what I stand for and what I should be doing. I can't live my life and make my choices based on the opinions of others, or fear of criticism. So, I just go for it!"
