"Meaningful, Passionate Melodic Rock with serious intensity and World-Class Production.

GOTHIC Ballads Sung From Within the Burning Heart of Rock and Roll!" - Matt Malley, former Bassist of The Counting Crows and Academy Award nominee.

 

People will see themselves in Haven's songs. They will know they've been there and have lived it, too.

A lifetime of colossal happiness and ferocious struggles. The love, the loss, the pain, the joy. Triumphs and tragedies. The “come what may's" of life have become inspiring, uplifting lyrics, woven amidst a melodic storm of high powered female vocals, intricate guitar voicing's and virtuoso musicianship. Elegantly crafted songs that speak to the human condition most important to us all: " Love!"

 

Haven resides in Southern California and their new record, “From the Ashes” will appeal to fans of classic rock artists such as Heart, Bon Jovi and Journey.  While delving into their own stylistic approach,  Haven explores and  delivers all the elements of a polished International rock band! From the many captivating moods of Pamme’s vocals,  to the fine guitar playing and arrangements, this album rocks! Haven is a radio-friendly band likely to draw tremendous exposure. This is a must listen!

Haven is excited to share their renewed ‘first band enthusiasm” with audiences.

When people go to a Haven show, it motivates them to see beyond the accepted vision. Dreams have no deadline. Whether a flicker or a flame, that voice that’s still talking is talking for a reason. “Not everyone peaks in their 20’s!"

 

People come up after a show and say “how much they loved and related to the songs!” They say they “can’t wait to pick up their guitar, paint brush,  pen, and just reconnect with the creativity they thought had long since been extinguished.” They say “this is  the most hopeful and excited they’ve felt about their lives in a long time!”

                                

It was an honor to work with some great guest musicians on this record:
