Joel Havea Trio (AUS)
Australian singer-songwriter, Joel Havea, in his extremely relaxed manner mixes soul and pop with blues, reggae, funk, jazz and country. The boost, the unmistakable energy is provided by the rhythm section featuring Leo Lazar and Arnd Geise. Sometimes their catchy melodies go straight to your feet, sometimes they gently drift into your ears – through to the rest of your body to stay with you. And with all its coolness, this surf rock has depth.
