Early last year we were all ready to head our separate ways and call it quits. We'd had an incredible journey but like all the best journeys it felt like it was time for it to end. Then the pandemic hit and we had no choice but to stop.
Then, more through circumstance than design, the two of us found ourselves writing songs together again. As we got deeper into the music, and had time to re-evaluate what was important to us, it became clear that these songs had a real, cathartic impact on our relationship as brothers. We thought about starting something new as a duo, but they just felt like Deaf Havana songs. We didn't want the journey to end, it was time for it to go in a different direction.
There is definitely some sadness at the fact we're not all together anymore, it's been a long, incredible and sometimes difficult journey, but we did it together and sometimes that was the only thing that would get us through.
We would like to thank our brothers and day one band mates, Tom and Lee for slogging it out with us up until this point. We wish them and their families all the best and every success for the future.
We are so proud of the music that we have been working on. The process felt natural and massively different to anything we have done before.
We are feeling better than ever.
This is the next chapter of Deaf Havana and we can't wait to share this with you.
Deaf Havana are a top band! Love them! Sing, Hunstanton Pier, Boston Square and Cassiopeia stand out perfmances last night. Great crowd... sang every word of the whole set and created a brilliant atmosphere. The lighting was incredible but as majority was positioned behind the band you couldn’t see the guys, only silhouettes for long periods. Rock City is a fantastic venue and always feels like a second home... but shame about the enforcement of noise curfew/early finish.

Amazing night, unforgettable band
I always find at gigs that no matter how much i like a band by the end I am getting restless and worn out but not last night, there was such a great energy the whole time, such a positive vibe, the band were so endearing and likeable and the music was flawless, I could have stayed for hours and hours just watching/listening to them perform
