ROCK - Hard Rock/Metal
Lake County, IL
"James [Gordon] and I have had the same interest, passion, and motivation for music for as long as I can remember," Andrew Casher explained to his friends. "It was only a matter of time before we came together and started a band."
Cousins Casher and Gordon have been yearning for this opportunity to perform with each other for several years, and with the two finally leaving their past bands in the summer of 2013, the timing seemed just right. The two came together, and Havenway was born. Very shortly after the creation of their new group, acoustic guitarist/vocalist and longtime friend L Morgan was notified and offered a position playing bass, which she gratefully accepted. Many months later in May of 2014, after playing their first shows, L Morgan stepped down from bass to take full creative control over the band's vocals, and talented multi-musican and good friend Brody Balousek picked up the instrument in her place. With the four-piece line-up solidified, the group began performing all throughout northern Illinois, including places such as the Lake County Fair Grounds and The Bottom Lounge. Havenway is currently writing and recording for their self-titled EP which is predicted to be released towards the end of 2014.
