The NaveBlues is a band on a mission. It is trying to bridge the gaps among three musical genres – the blues, rock, indie music to make the music speak your language, whoever you are. One of their core elements is the harmonica, which is essential to the mood of the lyrics and the ambiance of the space you are in when listening to the music. The band was formed in Norway but it integrates international influences into their music while keeping the common underlying messaging of Blues while surfacing more complexity with their storytelling. The band’s stories range across ghosts , love with misunderstandings, duty and inspiration, and frustration and adventure. NaveBlues does more than just sing a song. It wants you to understand the story and the emotion buried inside.
