Eve of Eden / Bio

Eve of Eden is an emerging rock & soul band from the Greater Bay Area led by award winning singer/songwriter Aliza Hava. Honoring the timeless tradition of getting back to the garden, the band fuses harmonic melodies and driving rhythms to create a sound that at once both rootsy and etheric. Influenced by the Blues, Classic Rock, Alt. Rock, R&B and Folk, Eve of Eden creates a soulful fusion of thoughtful lyrics combined with inspirational and emotional appeal.

The debut album, Natural State (out April 15), features Hava's original songs and the Midas touch of multi-platinum, Grammy winning producers/mixers Toby Wright (Heart, The Wallflowers, Alice in Chains), Stephen George (Sting, Paul Simon, Mary J. Blige) and the mastering genius of Bay Area legend Bill Hare. Hava self-produced the album hand-in-hand with celebrated multi-instrumentalist/producer & Guitar World Magazine blogger Ron Zabrocki.

Eve of Eden features Hava on lead vocals and rhythm guitar, Deirdre Egan on Celtic harp & keys, Tyler Adam Larson on lead guitar, Jesse Strauss on bass and Cory Graves on drums. The band members hail from Alameda, Sonoma, and Santa Cruz counties, representing a cross-section of the Greater Bay Area in all its splendor.

Before forming the band in 2015, Hava was a performing songwriter, concert producer, and peace troubadour who served as head of the International Day of Peace Music Team at the United Nations. Her extensive work with musicians for peace in the Middle East earned her a Human Spirit Award from the international NGO, Talent for Humanity. Throughout her journeys, Hava has shared bills with world-class artists such as Dr. John, Richie Havens, Michael Franti, Tab Benoit & the Voice of the Wetlands, Kevin Costner & Modern West, Jefferson Starship, and many more. Her songs have been included on compilations and soundtracks with songwriting luminaries such as Annie Lennox, Lucinda Williams, and Jackson Browne.

With their inherent message of peace and universal love, Eve of Eden embodies the power of music to heal the mind, body and soul, while staying true to the ongoing practice of reclaiming our natural state.
