Deaf Havana are a rock band from the U.K - initially hailing from East Anglia and at first turning to music for a lack of anything else to do in that rather empty part of the world! Now, after more than 10 years together and with various line-up changes, Deaf Havana are a 5 piece band comprising of James Veck-Gilodi (Vocals/Guitar), Matthew Veck-Gilodi (Guitar), Lee Wilson (Bass Guitar), Max Britton (Keyboards) and Tom Ogden (Drums).
Having released 4 full length albums, including two that charted in the U.K top 10 (2013’s Old Souls and 2017’s All These Countless Nights) they have showcased a sound that is constantly evolving and expanding with each subsequent release. Growing softer in places yet heavier in others, whilst always having a constant through the emotive and deeply personal lyrics and vocal stylings of James Veck-Gilodi.
''I really fell for Chapman’s ML1 Pro Traditional as soon as I held it and plugged it in. I wanted to expand my sound with something that had a similar versatility of a Stratocaster and the ML1 Pro Traditional has all that and more. It’s so well balanced and it sounds like an absolute dream when played clean or distorted. It’s like every little feature of the guitar has been thought out perfectly.'' Matt Veck-Gilodi
