Havilah Rand and Scott Samuels Saturday Aug 3rd 7pm ArtLab Studios

Havilah Rand
Began her music career at the age of 6 when she began composing songs on an old piano given to her family by some friends. Heavily influenced early on by James Taylor, Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Rolling Stones, The Police and a wide range of other styles, Havilah's songs immediately took on an identity of their own. Havilah's soulful and passionate vocal style would lead her to Interlochen Arts Academy and then on to Manhattan School of Music where she would train formally in both jazz and classical technique. Songwriting remained her true love and she soon left New York City for Seattle where she fronted pop-rock band Wish before picking up the guitar and moving on to a solo career of touring and recording. Havilah's first three albums were recorded in the Pacific Northwest where she fell into a tight knit community of artists and musicians. After a years of touring regionally and nationally for over a decade, Havilah moved to Europe in 2006 where she was warmly welcomed in Ireland, the UK and Mediterranean. She departed Barcelona wistfully in 2007 to relocate to the Live Music Capital of the World Austin, TX where she now lives. She has earned herself a steady audience and a respected name in a town where the caliber of musicianship is nothing less than stellar. "A High Wave" is a compilation of original songs inspired by a life of walking the road less traveled and expressing the deepest of thought and emotion through music.

Scott Samuels - Solo Acoustic Powerpop
A 25-year veteran of San Diego’s rock music scene, and a nationally recognized power-pop songwriter, former Roxy Monoxide front man Scott Samuels is a rock and roll survivor with lots of stories to tell.  Samuels’ love for rock and roll’s “hidden treasure”, and his unique ability to recount the quirkiest milestones of life, love and career, has fueled his songwriting and performances.  As SLAMM Magazine once said, he definitely “knows his way around a pop hook” – and back again.  His simple, honest and unpretentious vocal style has drawn comparisons to Dave Pirner of Soul Asylum and Elvis Costello, among others. Samuels is now mining the rich history of his musical past and present with his first solo release, “Great Big World”, and acoustic performances throughout the country
