Havens is the moniker of Toronto indie/alternative singer, songwriter and guitarist, Andrew Beg. Inspired by nostalgic ‘80s and ’90s alt bands such as The Smiths, The Cure and Ride mixed with the modern era of Arcade Fire, Franz Ferdinand and The Killers, Havens is infused with elements of dreampop, post-punk, new wave, jangle-pop and shoegaze.
In February 2017, Havens released his debut EP, Daybreak, which features five unique and distinct songs with thematic topics such as relationships and entering adulthood in today’s unpredictably changing world. Daybreak has received positive reviews and has been featured in a number of different blogs including Indie-Bandcamp and Narrows Media.
Havens has also played at some of Toronto’s best known music venues including Lee’s Palace, The Rivoli, Dakota Tavern, The Painted Lady, Supermarket, Hard Luck Bar and a sold out release show at the Gladstone Hotel.
Havens’ latest single, Peace In Darkness, is set to release on Friday, May 25, 2018. Collaborating with producer Ian Madden of Fretted Studio on composition and production, and Arkells’ own Tim Oxford on drums, Peace In Darkness is an ode to the classic love story with a dance-rock feel.
