"SD17 is the rebirth of a dream once thought dead."


- Tim H. -


SD17 is the brainchild of guitarist and songwriter Tim Haverman. After taking a break from the music scene for what seems and was many years, Tim is back with a new project, and has found some incredible talent to help bring the music to life once again.

A $20 dollar guitar and amp from a garage sale was all it took to get the musical journey started. With early influences from Elvis to AC/DC, and an amazing teacher that was a master on a 12-string acoustic, music was forever going to be a major part of his life. A seven-year detour in the military after high school delayed the band idea for a while, but in the early 90s the first band was formed. Life happens, bands break up, other priorities arise, but now it time to get back at it.

"Nyx provides the amazing vocals of SD17. As I began to write more music, the voice I needed became more clear. It had to be a badass female that could tell the stories. The challenge was finding someone that could make what I heard in my head become reality. Nyx made that happen." - Tim

"I needed a drummer that could create a wall of thunder. There is nothing better than going to a concert and feeling your clothes vibrate from a wall of sound. The drums are that backbone, and Sam brings that same thunder to SD17 recordings." - Tim
