HAVYN’s objective is simple: to create honest music that acts as a bridge between Consciousness and Contemporary music.
Conscious Urban/R&B or Urban R&B are some of the labels that might be used to define the genre of the Canadian songstress’ music. A fresh and never-before-heard voice in music, HAVYN informally dropped her debut EP in November 2017 and has continued to release some musical gems since. She recently won the title of “Urban Artist of the Year” at the 2018 Western Canadian Music Awards.
Currently living in Vancouver, British Columbia, HAVYN credits the distinctive topography as a huge source of inspiration for her and the music. You will find elements of the oceans, lakes, trees, and mountains throughout the music’s’ artwork, songs, and videos.
“Magenta” EP is HAVYN’s first official release. Throughout the 4-song EP, the listener will experience her transition away from old thought patterns toward a deeper level of awareness and freedom. “Blame on Me”, the second track on the EP, is a reflection on her past relationships and an acknowledgment of her missteps. As we progress forward to the title track of the EP, a shift in energy and mood is obvious. Inspired by sudden spiritual growth, life by the ocean, and the frequencies of sounds and colors, “Magenta” was born. HAVYN expresses a more positive, freethinking approach within her song writing.
Her most recent single, “Light Rays” features Hip-Hop/R&B artist Teon Gibbs, and is about feeling confident with who you are, being brave enough to shine your light, and using music to heal. It is now available on all streaming platforms. Her next album “Things Feel Lighter – Part 1” is scheduled to release in November 2019.
“I want my music to expand peoples’ awareness and ideas of consciousness, freeing themselves from the human ego as well as living a life that truly fulfills them, because that is the type of life I am aspiring to live. Music is about so much more than the words, the sounds, and the hype. Music is an ancient language, revealing the connectedness of humanity and our life here on Earth. Being out in nature is a way to reset and balance, so it is honoured in the music. I want my music to demonstrate that integrating a bohemian lifestyle into a 21st-century lifestyle is possible and that you can find balance and harmony between the two.”
