Moriah Haven is a Singer-Songwriter, whose projects utilize various concept characters, with each expressing a clear idea in their own voice. Though, spoken through many characters, her projects seek to reflect her personal beliefs, in hopes of raising awareness (and removing stigmas) on speaking openly about mental illness, surviving abuse, body positivity, and sexuality. With her own history of surviving abuse, recovering from Anorexia, and a Bipolar 1 diagnosis, these issues are very close to her heart. Also close to her heart, (as a bisexual woman) is advocating for the LBGTQ community.
"For me, singing is mostly about the articulation of emotional intention through melody. The arts, and music in particular, seem to connect us with each other on a spiritual level like nothing else quite can; creating a unique human connection you rarely see manifesting through other expressions."
Growing up with strong roots in Appalachian Music, Country, Blues, Bluegrass, and Gospel, her performances pay homage to the tradition of these genres, often evoking an era and style more reminiscent of times past. She is a lover of tradition, who learned to sing in her Grandmother's Non-Denominational Country Church. Though often somewhat of the black sheep, her faith is still a guiding force in her life, though her projects may not always please most traditional Christian sensibilities. Haven herself often seems as much a juxtaposition as her sonic experiments to those who might meet her in passing, as she is often in character. One can rest assured, however, that she's always doing her best to stay genuine at heart.
