Joel Havea has an extremely unique musical background and has come from the eclectic music scene of Melbourne, Australia. The singer, songwriter and guitarist has performed alongside his brother, Dave, as part of The Havea Brothers. The duo began performing live at young ages, dipping their foot in the music industry of Australia’s capital. While creating music with his brother, Joel began to develop a sound of his own, which had an acoustic and reggae vibe. It was then that he decided to relocate to Hamburg, Germany and create some of his own individual music.
Joel released his debut album ‘You Make Me Believe’ in 2012, and since than, has been touring around the world spreading the love of his music a number of different countries. ‘Strings & Woods’ was recorded in 2013 and is a fully acoustic album recorded with guitar, percussion and double bass, portraying a sound that is similar to his live performances and shows.
