About Moriah & The #GrowthProject
Moriah Haven is a multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter, Aspergers advocate, and visual artist with a background in American Roots music. Despite her history, she has performed with lineups spanning from entirely traditional, to wildly experimental. With an ability to deliver a uniquely emotional vocal performance, you will always feel what Moriah is singing. She also performs with family Bluegrass outfit, Lawson Reunion.
“I never thought I wanted to do anything besides sing. My heart never gave me another option, really. When I realized that this (singing) was also a powerful resource or “tool” for healing, I saw the door open to the most passionate expression this medium could offer for my journey. When we have an opportunity to utilize the arts as a form of compassionate communication, significant healing for others, and in turn, ourselves, occurs on a very deep level.”
This concept piece truly seeks to dive into some dark crevices into the nittiest of the grittiest of the human experience, telling the story of “Maia”, a survivor with a history of abuse. In this concept piece, she makes her journey from the resulting darkness, doubt and self-destruction, into self-love and enlightenment, growth after tribulation, courage after fear.
The material in this project wishes to face these demons, working to remove the stigmas attached to speaking about abuse and resulting mental health struggles. The project does not approach these subjects lightly, but always has emphasis on triumph over the darkness, the silver lining around every dark cloud, the beauty and complexity of the human heart’s journey, finally thriving after surviving.
