The H&H Team
Introducing Carson Aday... Please share a story that includes a happy memory as an artist and has made a huge impact on your artistry. Last summer I had the opportunity to play a private house show before leaving for college. It was over 100° that day, and yet over a hundred people crammed into my backyard to hear my music. Energy was through the roof with both the band and the audience. We got some great pictures of guitars covered in sweat and blood, and even people jumping into the pool after our set! It was a great night.
Your Best Life Nashville
Story time with Singer/ Songwriter Carson Aday! CA: 5 years ago my dad found a small keyboard for a good deal on Facebook. None of my family members are musical, so this was quite odd. I remember thinking that I should learn to play a song; it seemed like other people had fun when playing piano. I sat down at the keyboard and quickly understood the fundamentals of music. After a few hours I could play through a few pieces by Beethoven and Mozart alongside some 70’s rock songs. After a semi-viral Facebook post, I was competing globally 6 months later.
Midnight on a Flower Moon is Carson Aday’s latest album. It features nine tracks with a run-time of twenty-six and a half minutes. The genre is Contemporary Rock and the musician has the personality and skillset
to deliver exactly what the audience wants. His Elvis Presley looks and George Ezra style, full-breathe vocals mark the making of a star.
The tracklist for Midnight on a Flower Moon is very interesting, and skillfully arranged. While the musician yields Rock as the origin of his body of work, the vastly different songs suggest this is far more than his style: it is his identity. Each song that this album features is just that good; and then again, there are the highlights.
Music didn’t interest Carson Aday growing up. Joining the middle school choir was his worst nightmare, and he often found piano performances boring. However, life took a turn when he turned 14.
Carson Aday pleased his fans with a new single 'She Took Your Heart And Ran' released on October 22. The song reveals the theme of unhappy love and all the consequences of separation.
“We’ve all seen people change. Watching a loved one drift away is a painful experience, only made worse when you know they won’t come back. She Took Your Heart & Ran was written to my high school best friend who fell into a life of drug and alcohol addiction after he started dating a girl who was a bad influence on him. After a big fight leading to him telling me that he didn’t want me in his life anymore, I decided to write a song instead of responding.”
18-year-old Carson Aday has released his latest single, ‘My Small Handful Of Gold’, detailing the struggles of heartbreak. The heartfelt track draws parallels to the works of other indie artists, such as Ben Howard. Aday seems to have a way with words, which is surprising for someone who is such a young age.
Instrumentation drives the track, as it takes the form of an exceptionally memorable song, defined by a definitive drum beat and purposeful electric guitar. The song rings true to Aday’s previously released single ‘Ode To The Strokes’, which hints that this may be a recurring motif on the singer’s upcoming album, set to be released in autumn.
If Aday excels at one thing, in particular, it is making tracks that stick in your head. The looping electric guitars in the background of his tracks are something that you find yourself swaying along to, specifically during the opening of ‘My Small Handful Of Gold - it is the perfect track to be played at any gig!
The single artwork portrays Aday as being lost in thought whilst viewing a detailed painting, aptly reflecting the tone of the song. The lyrics detail the singer pleading for help after suffering heartbreak as he is ‘’driving uptown without a purpose or a way’’ because his ‘’heart is on the brink of breaking’’. This raw and honest lyricism is appreciated in such a busy music industry, where many artists fail to sing about anything that is truly relatable. Hearing Aday sing, ‘’I give to you my heart torn in two’’, is also refreshing because of his relatively young age - if this is the soul-baring approach that he is taking now, it’s safe to say that his career will only be on the rise from here if he remains to be true to
‘My Small Handful Of Gold’ is available to stream now.

There are times when breaking up after years together is the right decision, but that doesn’t always translate to what you feel at the time. This is something that Carson Aday has gone through and transformed into his single ‘My Small Handful of Gold’. Taking his pain and regret, he weaves it into a single that unleashes these negative emotions while acknowledging the rightness of the decision made.
While he draws on his emotions and experience, the event is a universal one that makes the single easy to relate to. As he picks up the pieces of his own emotions, he combines them with his passion for music which he has honed over the years to craft his mature sound. With a range of emotions packed into the music, Aday will have you longing for what you know you can’t have, stewing in regret and finally finding the light at the end of the tunnel.

2. Carson Aday - Ode To The Strokes
You'd be forgiven for thinking this song was written by The Strokes. Carson has so deftly managed to replicate their sound, progression, and very identity into his tribute track to the iconic rock outfit for many in the 2000s. 'Ode To The Strokes' is sonically identical, and even in name perhaps has a secondary tribute to the latest album's defining track 'Ode To The Mets'.
But lyrically, the songs about Carson's personal life. In particular, he drew inspiration from the moment his girlfriend of three years told him she was transferring to a college that was eight hours away. You can tell that he's poured his heart and soul into each word, melody, and beat on this project. Ode to The Strokes is amazing because it's its own track. Despite clear and heavy interpolation from the legends themselves, Carson finds a way to make it his own piece. Regardless, if you have a fleeting affection for The Strokes, you'd do yourself a favour by listening to Carson's latest.
We are extremely pleased to cover the new works of those artists we have already talked about. Carson Aday from Texas is one such artist and today we will talk about his new single 'My Small Handful Of Gold' which was released on July 2.
"The song 'Ode To The Strokes' is an example of classic American indie rock with a remote rhythm section and the main characters are rhythmic guitar and romantic vocals. Carson Aday's young talent is only at the beginning of his music career, so we wish him a successful voyage across the vast ocean of show business. Listen to the single 'Ode To The Strokes' below on Spotify and check out Carson Aday's remarkable debut."
