BIO & FRIENDS
Hoven is an indie-folk band from the misty lands of Lleida (Catalonia), although its roots are in Bedford, UK. After the dissolution of an early band and longing for new ways to express his creativity, Pol Joven, guitarist and songwriter from Lleida, decided to create the project Hoven in 2019.
It was his early years living in the UK that inspired the indie-folk compositions and first releases (Indie Ruck, Away / Wave, The Night She Left). All this helped him win three contests in Spain (Concurs Cases de la Música Lleida, Concurs Festival Monocicle & Beca Talent 2021).
After being on the singer/songwriter scene for a few years, the project took new directions with the incorporation of 4 musicians from the Catalan scene: Genís Bagés (drums), Pau Gairí (saxophone), Vicent Monfà (keys) & Arnau Martínez (bass).
In late 2021, they finished recording their first release as a band, an independently released EP called «The Waters», with the first single The Waters released in late March 2022 and the full EP due out in early April.
Rugby player and musician from Lleida. After living in the outskirts of London and Prague, he created Hoven as an independent project with his compositions.
