Let me be the first to introduce the Gray Havens. When it comes to new music, you can hardly get any newer than this husband and wife duo from Illinois who are just now making their first venture into the realm of music. Dave and Licia Radford got married August of last year, began recording in June, and released their first album on January 25th of this year. For you avid Tolkien readers, yes, the band’s name is a reference to the “Grey” Havens, the elven heaven, from the Lord of the Rings. If that literary reference isn’t enough to peak your interest, perhaps their catchy piano and acoustic, jazzy blend of music will.
This relatively undiscovered group is definitely worth checking out because they are on the rise. I’m really looking forward to where this band is going to be a few years from now.
