Her unique brand of melodically lush, groove infused Americana is mulled in poetic lyricism born of adventure, self exploration and artistry at its most poignant. Havilah is also the founder of Holistic ArtVentures, an organization that uses songwriting as a tool for bolstering creativity and confidence and preserving the oral history of our elders. Through various songwriting programs, Havilah has written songs with hundreds of children and elderly and is planning a 2018 release that features selected pieces from these projects.
Wagner is a songwriter out of Austin TX who was raised in the deserts of New Mexico and one time park ranger for Joshua Tree National Park. His music often draws from this desert landscape. His song (Wagner/Isakov/Elliott)“If I Go, I'm Goin, has been covered by the country artist, Bart Crow, by the Denver symphony orchestra, and also appears on the TV shows, Californication and Teen Wolf. He co-writes often with his long-time friends Gregory Alan Isakov and Ron Scott. Their collaborative work lead to their song “Suitcase Full of Sparks” being featured on NBC's show, The Blacklist. He has been dubbed “A number one best bet” by the Austin American-Statesman, The Dallas Morning News has called him “A Texas folk music staple”, and the Austin Chronicle gives his album "The Runaway Kid" a perfect "Four Stars" and refers to Wagner as "A commander of words and Ideation" and awarded him with the Austin Chronicle's pick for best Local Singer Songwriter for 2014.
