Belaver (former frontman of doom-folk band listenlisten) is the solo project of NYC-based experimental folk artist B.E.
Godfrey. In 2014, Godfrey released Wild Desperation (Chill Mega Chill/Very Jazzed, 2014), his debut solo EP, featuring collaborations with country legend Robert Ellis and Deep Cuts’ Chase Harris. Drawing on the dark lyricism of his work with listenlisten, Wild Desperation was a five-track EP chock full of elegantly stark instrumentation and ominous narratives about murderous men. Godfrey, now working under the pseudonym Belaver, released his debut full length, 'True Love Of Crime' in 2019. Also produced by Robert Ellis, True Love of Crime is a more polished contrast to Wild Desperation, lush with electronic elements around themes of criminal lovers on the run. Belaver is already working on a follow up LP.
