Joel Havea Short Info

Sunny & Soulful Australian Grooves:

Joel Havea is no stranger to life on the road. The Tongan-born, Melbourne-raised musician left Australia in 2008 and gigged his way across the world, playing countless small shows throughout South-East Asia and Europe.

He decided to stay in Europe, eventually landing in Hamburg in the summer of 2009, where he immediately began integrating himself into the cities vibrant music scene. It was in the harbour city where he really began honing his own sound, writing lots of new material inspired from his travels, and fine tuning the great backlog of songs he had written over the years. The result was his debut album “You Make Me Believe” which was independently released in March 2012.

Joel headed back into the studio in late 2013 to record an acoustic EP, backed by only percussion and double bass, in a sound more reminiscent of his dynamic live acoustic performances. The resulting EP “String & Wood” was released in May 2014.

Since then, in between constant touring in Europe and Australia, Joel has also also been working on his new album in a trio band formation with Leo Lazar (drums) and Arnd Geise (bass) which is planned for release in Spring 2017. The chemistry between these 3 musicians is palpable on stage and in the studio and this dynamic rhythm section adds a high-octane boost to Joel’s music, which is best experienced live. So do yourself a favour and come down to down to a show to check it out for yourself, great times and funky vibes are guaranteed!
