HAVENS MUSIC

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.

Happy Juneteenth from me and my Jimi Hendrix at Woodstock action figure. Today, @bandcamp is donating their cut of all music sales on their site to the @naacp , and that includes any Havens release including recent single "Make Things Better". It's a great way to buy new music and support the important ongoing fight against racial injustice. Black people created rock and roll and black music continues to influence my own art everyday.✌️🎶

This officially ends our Make Things Better campaign and Bandcamp purchases of the song will no-longer be donated. However, anyone who sends me a new donation receipt from the Red Cross can receive a free digital download of ANY Havens release!

This evening I will be making the grand donation to Stronger Together Nova Scotia and posting it, so if you have not donated yet, now's your chance to boost our totals even higher. We have now raised over $3,500 total, between direct donations through Red Cross and Bandcamp purchases! Thanks so much to everyone who has opened up their hearts and wallets to this cause. Two ways to donate:

1. Buy the song Make Things Better on the Havens Bandcamp page here: musicbyhavens.bandcamp.com/track/make-things-better and tonight, I will donate in one sum, all of the proceeds directly to the Red Cross’ donation portal and will post full proof of this on social media.

2. If you would alternatively rather donate directly to the fund yourself (larger dollar donors have preferred this method thus far), please use the link here to the Red Cross' donation portal and send me a screenshot of your donation receipt and I will send you an mp3 file of the song as thanks. donate.redcross.ca/page/59671/donate/1?locale=en-CA

Thank You Metalworks Institute for sharing 🙏. We have now raised over $3,450 total, between direct donations through Red Cross and Bandcamp purchases. Monday will be the last day to donate, so if you haven't done so yet, here are the two ways to do it and obtain your copy of Make Things Better as thanks:

1. Buy the song Make Things Better on the Havens Bandcamp page here: musicbyhavens.bandcamp.com/track/make-things-better and In about a week’s time, I will donate in one sum, all of the proceeds directly to the Red Cross’ donation portal and will post full proof of this on social media.

2. If you would alternatively rather donate directly yourself (larger dollar donors have preferred this method thus far), please use the link here to the Red Cross' donation portal and send me a screenshot of your donation receipt and I will send you an mp3 file of the song. donate.redcross.ca/page/59671/donate/1?locale=en-CA

Lastly, if for whatever reason this plan should fall through, I will refund anyone who has donated through Bandcamp. I believe what is proposed above should work. Thank you to anyone who donates and listens. 🙏 - A.
