As an Australian musician living in Germany, Joel Havea has experienced a range of different music scenes and pulled from a number of different influences, particularly reggae and pop. It also helps that he’s a natural talent when it comes to songwriting, singing, and playing guitar.
After releasing his first album, You Make Me Believe just two years ago, Joel has been hard at work touring around Europe and Australia and recording his new EP, Strings & Wood.
The new EP won’t be released until next month, but until then here’s a video of “Going Through the Motions,” one of the tracks on Strings & Wood:
The rest of the EP keeps with his style of his often-soulful acoustic guitar, thoughtful lyrics, and overall upbeat music. Here’s a short video that Joel made which explains the EP and the story behind some of the songs on it:
For any International Almost Nerds, Joel will be touring across Switzerland, Germany, Austria, and Denmark this spring to promote the new EP, as well as streaming a live show for all to see online on May 5th. He’s also planning to tour the U.S. for this first time this upcoming fall. Find out more about his live shows at JoelHavea.com.
