The moment Haven has been waiting for is finally here. Her debut single “Swimming In Your Feelings” is out, and Celeb Secrets sat down with the budding artist about her musical journey.
Haven’s career began at a young age, writing country tunes in the heart of Nashville, Tennessee. Growing up in the 1,600-person town of Moville, Iowa, Haven decided to head to Music City at age 12, where her singing and songwriting talents were quickly recognized. A small-town girl with a big-time stage presence, Haven began touring the nation by age 15 with major country acts such as Thomas Rhett, Lady Antebellum, Toby Keith and Hunter Hayes.
While touring the nation, Haven was exposed to the realm of pop music for the first time since leaving her small-town roots and ultimately fell in love with the genre. Instantly recognizing her talent, manager Brian Teefey (LH7 Management / Selena Gomez’s step-dad), signed her and began to help guide Haven who has set out to re-define pop with her own artistic flare. The now 20-year old artist is set to debut her unique pop sound this year. While Haven’s music is planted in pop, her artistry is still guided by the story-driven lyrics and heart-melting melodies defined by her country roots.
“The biggest challenge has been finding what I want my sound to be. I’ve been writing pop for the last year, and its kind of landed in a female Bazzi, Julia Michaels, Billie Eilish type vibe, and I’ve just kind of taken all of my influences and put them together and it felt so much more natural when I moved to pop than country has,” Haven tells Celeb Secrets.
