Navaro are a trio of singer-songwriters who met just over ten years ago. Beth Navaro had a record deal with indie label 'Halo'. When looking for musicians for imminent live dates she met experienced writer/performers Pete White and Steve Austin on the Hertfordshire open mic scene. The three enjoyed the blend of their wildly different voices on each other’s songs and when the label boss came to a rehearsal he offered the trio an album deal if they became a band. 

The resulting album, Under Diamond Skies (2008) was well received by the folk/roots press and led to numerous gigs and festivals along with support slots with Fairport Convention and Phil Beer (Show Of Hands).

The follow up, Home Is Where Your Heartlands (2012) was also well received. It showcased the full live band sound and featured guest musicians from established folk-rockers Little Johnny England and TradArrr among others.

March 2019 see Navaro release a third album entitled 'So Long Wichita'. The title track pays homage to the golden age of singer songwriters and follows a recent close encounter with the writer of Wichita Lineman, Mr Jimmy Webb. 

'Poetry In Motion', also from the new album has just been used in a campaign designed to encourage young people to talk rather than facing their problems in isolation. BBC radio 6 and various folk shows have also supported the track.
