Having met 12 years ago at one of Hayden's first shows, the two have been touring the world together ever since: Hayden with his music and Jennifer with her art. 2019 has been the most challenging but rewarding year for them as they welcomed their beautiful baby boy, James Romeo Luby into the world at 30 weeks 5 days.
