We dig Deaf Havana, which is why we invited James Veck-Gilodi into the ring for a session. He revealed the one thing he is greedy about and shared a very personal story about one of the band's songs. We felt honored that he revealed something so deep to us. It made us like the band even more. We promise -- you will, too!
The band's album Old Souls is out now.

6-piece U.K. rock band. Hard working. Bringing back honest music with real lyrics.
If you were not doing music, you would be...
Honestly? Either homeless or working as a primary school teacher haha I always wanted to do that.
Any non-music hobbies, talents or skills?
I can cook pretty well, but that's just because I'm super greedy and I love eating.
Pick ONE song one your record and share a writing or recording story. Something intimate, that you haven't told anyone else (or at least a bunch of writers or journalists) and that which puts us in the moment with you. Let's get intimate, shall we?
A song called 'Caro Padre.' I wrote this about a very personal subject that I have never approached before. When I was a lot younger, my father left me and my mother and never contacted me again. This song is the first time I have ever expressed that openly, my frustration at never knowing him or having a real biological father in my life. It was hard to perform because it's such a personal subject but I think it added to the emotion of the song. My father is Italian and 'Caro Padre' means 'Dear Father in Italian.
Finish this sentence: Deaf Havana is the artist that…
...will reintroduce you to honesty and good storytelling, show you that rock and roll doesn't need to be glamorous and hopefully help a few people along the way.
