It was a kind gesture of the universe that Jorrit was introduced to Marijn, making them discover each others passion for music. They quickly understood that Marijn’s soothing voice was an unique blend with Jorrit’s instrumental colors. In this universe, inspired songwriters and filmcomposers, they are constantly in search of melodies and lyrics that comfort them. For the production of their debut album they teamed up with the producer behind London Grammar, Tim Bran. Their debut album ‘Eyes Closed’ evokes feelings of solitude, seduction and remorse. HAEVN recorded a string orchestra for their debut album.
With creating the HAEVN universe a whole other world opened up for Jorrit and Marijn. It was the first time people could form their own images and emotions whilst listening to the sounds of Jorrit. And for the first time the songs on the album could have the healing effect for others in a way Marijn experienced it before.
