Hayden Powell

Hayden Powell is a trumpet player and composer based in Oslo, Norway. Originally English, Powell moved to Norway as a child and grew up in Molde. He works in a variety of styles with an emphasis on jazz and improvised music, and released his debut album as a bandleader, The Attic, in September 2011.

Hayden Powell started his career as a 13-year-old member of the traditional jazz band Dixi from Molde. Tours of Norway and England and four CD releases by this band gave Powell a blistering start to his musical life. In addition, Powell often performed with his father, who is a church organist. From 2002-2006 he studied at NTNU in Trondheim, earning a bachelor's degree in jazz performance. During these years, Powell co-founded the band Magic Pocket with Erik Johannessen (trombone), Daniel Herskedal (tuba) and Erik Nylander (drums). He also started his first band in his own name, and had great success in 2008 when Hayden Powell Quartet played at the Trondheim Jazz Festival with trumpeter Kenny Wheeler as a guest. During this period, Powell also participated in several versions of the Trondheim Jazz Orchestra, including those led by Terje Rypdal, Vigleik Storaas and Eirik Hegdal. He received Molde Jazz Festival and Sparebank 1's Jazz Scholarship in 2006 and Trondheim Jazz Festival's talent prize in 2009....
