Julie Haven’s mercurial Piano Pop blends the style of Tori Amos' intricate piano work, the intensity of Alanis Morissette, the conviction of Fiona Apple, and a few other influential songwriters including Chantal Kreviazuk, PJ Harvey, and Sarah McLachlan, to make a unique sound of her own. Writing from her heart and her own experience, she allows her audience to personally connect with her music through her songs of love, heartbreak, personal growth and self-discovery.
In the house in Metro Detroit where she was born and raised, a very young Julie Haven started singing to an audience as early as when she spoke her first word. It was there that she rescued an old upright piano that no one played and was in danger of being tossed away. Julie saved this lonely vessel of expression from piano heaven when her parents noticed her strong connection with it. Julie had found her best friend. A few years later, self taught, she composed her first song when she was only 7 years old. By the age of 13 she was performing solo shows at local music venues, always impressing her audience with the emotional maturity she conveyed in her songs. It was after hearing Tori Amos’ album ”Under the Pink” in seventh grade that Julie started to take her music career seriously, which resulted in her first full length album release.
These days, while sharing her time between her hometown and her new home in South Florida, Julie has a very busy performance schedule as a solo artist, as well multiple other projects such as the female lead singer in popular Florida based party band 'bOunce’ and Detroit based ‘Bluewater Kings Band’ (International Musicians League), while also making time to get back in the studio. She recently finished working with Producer Stephen Leiweke at Yackland Studio in Nashville, TN on her upcoming EP “Fools Gold” and will be finishing up a full album later this year.
The EP “Fool’s Gold”, will be available on August 16, 2019.
