Aviva sings heart songs – some for love lost, and others for humanity forgotten – with a tone and cadence that conjure both the vintage pop of the Fifties and the dark, dreamy sounds you might hear coming from that haunted backwoods bar in 1990s Twin Peaks, Washington. She offers a frequency of hopefulness, a frequency to cry to, a frequency that begs you to dig a bit deeper. Her songs are honest and endearing, bold and restless, easy to listen to and sometimes hard to hear. Aviva’s music invites you to look into the dark cracks of everything – it can be intimidating, but we all know that’s how the light gets in.
Aviva is a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist originally from the Bay Area, and has traveled far and wide to share her songs and play music with friends. Over the last few years, Aviva has supported John Craigie, Josiah Johnson (The Head and the Heart), Rainbow Girls, Chelsea Coleman, Cassandra Lewis, and Kit Center & The Hollow Bones, and shared the stage with Langhorne Slim, The Tallest Man On Earth, Skyway Man, and Twain.
