She has collaborated with and opened for everyone from Roger Waters, Herbie Hancock, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant, Sting and George Clinton's P-Funk All Stars, to name a few. Haydn is also a film composer, with twelve feature films and documentaries to her scoring credit. She is the recipient of a Film Composing Fellowship to the prestigious Sundance Film Institute, and she has collaborated with renowned composers on films like Pirates of the Caribbean and The Town.
