Joel Havea was born on the tropical island of Tonga, raised in multi-cultural Melbourne, Australia and has spent the last 7 years living in Hamburg, Germany.
As a result, his songs clearly reflect his wide ranging musical and cultural influences. His music contains elements of Soul, Funk, Roots, Reggae, Blues and Pop, naturally with his own acoustic touch and an emphasis on harmony and groove - a throwback to his polynesian roots.
He is currently working on his second album in a band lineup as the Joel Havea Trio, but still performs solo on many stages and in living rooms across Europe and Australia.
