Ethereal.  Enlightening. Medicine for the soul. Aliza Hava (“aLEEza Hah-vuh”)  interlaces the elements; earth and sky, fire and water. Her transcendent  voice recreates the mystical tone of Stevie Nicks, the raw soul of  Janis Joplin, and the energizing strength of Florence Welch. With her  award-winning infusion of folk, rock, pop, and R&B, Aliza heals the  tiny forgotten bits of ourselves while rekindling our memories, setting  our feet on the path back home and calling us to rise into our best  versions of ourselves.


Seeking  solace from a difficult childhood, Hava turned to music at an early  age. Self-taught on a twenty-dollar used guitar, she found inspiration  in an old songbook she discovered in her parent’s basement, 'Great Songs  of the 60s.'  Fire-lit, Hava immersed herself in the history of the 60s  and early 70s. The music, culture, and activism helped her discover her  calling for healing and ignited a drive to write songs that could  change the world.


While  in university studying Music Therapy, Aliza developed a strong  inclination towards student activism and discovered a natural gift for  concert production and community organizing. She began producing charity  concerts featuring local bands for campus organizations like Students  for a Free Tibet and NYPIRG.  She led drum circles in the infamous  “Tripping Fields” behind the college where some of the greatest names in  music once played, including the Grateful Dead, Frank Zappa, and Stevie  Ray Vaughan. With her college located just thirty miles from the town  of Woodstock, Hava soaked up the culture and spirit that continued to  permeate the region many decades later. She collaborated with local  musicians, pulled all-nighters with her guitar around campfires, and  earned herself the nickname, FireMusicFaerie.


After  college, Aliza began performing at and co-producing concerts at the  United Nations headquarters in NYC. She earned a position as Chair of  the UN International Day of Peace NGO Music Committee, and went on to  produce live concerts on six continents in partnership with over forty  civic society, governmental, and environmental organizations. While  living part-time in the Middle East, Hava represented UN-related  peacebuilding initiatives and worked with Israeli and Palestinian  musicians promoting peace and dialogue through music. She went on to  produce the internationally livestreamed concert, Harmony in the Holy  Land. This extraordinary event united Muslim, Christian, and Jewish  musicians in a universal, musical prayer for peace from the heart of  Jerusalem. Watching Palestinians and Israelis meet as strangers and part  ways as friends, Aliza felt the reaffirmation of her calling to build  bridges through the healing power of music.


Throughout  her journeys, Aliza has shared bills with world-class artists such as  Dr. John, Michael Franti, Matisyahu, and more. She has performed in the  U.S., Canada, India, Australia, Jordan, Israel/Palestine, and South  Korea and considers her music and work a form of sacred activism.

The  original recording of Hava’s song RISE can be heard on 'Occupy this  Album: 99 Songs for the 99%' alongside artists such as Ani DiFranco,  Jackson Browne, and Warren Haynes. Her music is on the soundtrack of  Sharon Stone’s award-winning documentary, Femme: Women Healing the  World, which also features performances by Annie Lennox, Yoko Ono, and  Rickie Lee Jones. She is a recipient of the Human Spirit Award presented  by the international organization Talent for Humanity, and her story is  featured in their book along with seven other internationally acclaimed  artist/activists.

Her latest singles, Radiant Light, Behind Your Eyes, and most recent album, Natural State, explore  themes spanning introspection, personal transformation, lost love, and  standing in one’s true power. Featuring songs adorned with a rich  tapestry of vocal harmonies, ethereal textures, and rootsy folk-rock,  Aliza brings to life a glimmering mosaic of the moments that have shaped  her.  With an inherent message of peace and universal love, her songs  embody the power of music to uplift the mind, body, and soul while  staying true to the ongoing practice of reclaiming our natural state.
