From the jazz halls of New York City to the post-grunge scene of Seattle to the Live Music Capital of the World, Havilah is a true troubadour whose career has spanned several decades and multiple genres. Havilah has recently relocated to the Pacific Northwest after a ten year stint in Austin, TX where she earned herself a steady audience and a respected name amidst a community of stellar musicians. With five full length albums under her belt and another on the way, she has been a winner of the multiple songwriting contests, a regional performer at Kerrville Folk Festival and was nominated for the Austin Music Peoples Esme Barrera award for Music Activism in Education among numerous other accolades. Her songwriting blends a rootsy, rhythmic edge with a poetic lyricism born of adventure, self exploration and artistry at its most poignant. Painted with lush vocal stylings and honey-smoked melodies, Havilah’s songs and voice remind the listener of Joni Mitchell and Nina Simone but with a soul all its own.
