    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.

    Twitter-size your bio -- your choice of 140 words or characters, if you want to get technical-- and tell us everything we need to know! GO

    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.

    Check out "Boston Square" below.



    Did you dig Deaf Havana as much as we did?
