About Havana Brown
DJ, singer and producer Havana Brown may have started her career in a band called Fishbowl, but she's expanded well beyond the little globe-shaped microcosm to become one of Australia's most well-known performers.
Like many people her age, Brown took a liking to clubs as a teen and young adult, and began hanging around the DJs where her band picked up gigs. The next step was acquiring her own gear, and before long she was making a name for herself at venues around the country.
By 2008, Brown had inked a deal with Island Records Australia as a DJ for the company, and soon after began touring with the likes of Lady Gaga and the Pussycat Dolls. That same year she released the first volume of her mix series, "Crave," which featured remixes of songs from other artists. Pretty soon she was touring with other international artists like Rihanna, Chris Brown and Enrique Iglesias. In other words, Brown didn't just break out of the fishbowl. She smashed it to pieces.
Brown's big breakthrough as a recording artist came in 2011, with her single "We Run the Night" topping out at No. 5 on the Australian ARIA Singles Chart. It earned her two ARIA Music Award nominations, not to mention a US record deal with Universal Republic. A remix of "We Run the Night," featuring rapper Pitbull, went all the way to No. 1 on the US Hot Dance Club Songs chart and No. 26 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart. It was also included on Brown's first EP, "When the Lights Go Out," back in the summer of 2012.
Brown's star has only continued to rise over the last 24 months, as she recently racked up another No.1 with "Warrior" on the Dance/Club play chart.
