ABOUT HAVENS

Havens is the moniker of Toronto indie/alternative singer, songwriter and guitarist, Andrew Beg. Inspired by nostalgic ‘80s and ’90s alt bands such as The Smiths, The Cure and Ride mixed with the modern era of Arcade Fire, Franz Ferdinand and The Killers, Havens is infused with elements of dreampop, post-punk, new wave, jangle-pop and shoegaze.

Havens’ pursuit for music initially transpired after viewing Michael Jackson’s music video for Thriller at the age of 6. Shortly after, a performance on MUCH of Jack White and the White Stripes led Havens to discover his talent at the guitar and begin forming a band. To further develop his musical talent, Havens went on to attend the Metalworks Institute, Canada’s premier entertainment arts school, for Music Performance and Technology.

Havens released his 2017 debut EP, Daybreak, which received positive reviews and has been featured in a number of different blogs including Indie-Bandcamp and Narrows Media. Most recently, Havens has collaborated with producer Ian Madden and Juno award-winning drummer Tim Oxford on a trilogy of songs that examine the theme of love from various perspectives. The singles, which include Peace In Darkness, Fall, and Taking Me Away, have garnered a combined total of over 106,000 streams on Spotify and over 1 million media impressions across Canada.

Havens has appeared on notable media outlets including Global News’ The Morning Show, CHCH Morning Live, SiriusXM Canada, 102.1 The Edge, Humble and Fred Radio, What She Said Radio, Spill Magazine, and Canadian Beats. He performed at the 2018 Radical Road Show, a Toronto festival headlined by iconic Canadian band, Skydiggers. He has also played at some of Toronto’s best known music venues including Lee’s Palace, The Rivoli, Sneaky Dee’s, Dakota Tavern, The Painted Lady, Supermarket, Hard Luck Bar and a sold out release show at the Gladstone Hotel.

These are difficult times, friends. Please obey the social distancing rules to keep others safe and curb the spread of COVID-19. If you have been hit hard financially because of this, I can empathize (I am doing ok though so please don't worry about me and instead help friends and loved ones who actually need resources). If you can, take this time to catch up on reading, film viewing, music listening, chores and personal hobbies. Thanks to anyone who has bought or streamed any Havens music at this time. 'Fretted Studio Session' is free to download on our Bandcamp if you need some alternative music in your life right now ( musicbyhavens.bandcamp.com/album/fretted-studio-session ), and is on the streaming services too. I might be stating the obvious in this post and I know the same things have been said before, but I felt the need to do what I can to spread this message. - A
