Vivien's soulful sound
Growing up in a musical family in Papua New Guinea, Vivien Aisi has always had music in her blood.
“The first time I sang for others was when I was five. My Dad was playing ‘Sad Movies’ by Sue Thompson on the guitar, and I burst into singing it and surprised everyone. That was my singing debut,” she said.
This natural ear for music has continued with Vivien throughout her life, and culminates in the release of her five-track debut album ‘Lost in Time,’ which is available on online streaming platforms from today, Friday November 13.
Vivien will be joined by a five-piece band as she performs her live album launch at Elixir Music Bar next Thursday, November 19, from 7pm in what is sure to be a powerful performance. Tickets available at www.vivienaisi.com.
After moving to Cairns ten years ago, Vivien has lent her vocal skills to various bands and recording artists and in 2015 she began showcasing her own original material in open mic nights around Cairns.
In 2019 Vivien collaborated on Rap Artist MC Pyrit’s debut single ‘Dream Walkers,’ and then went on to record and release her first ever single and video titled ‘Lost in Time’ which has found its way onto various Spotify playlists including the Caribbean Broadcaster Network Spotify Playlists and Q Music’s Keep Listening Playlist .
After losing her job in tourism due to COVID-19, Vivien decided to make the most of her time in 2020 to work on recording her debut album with two tracks recorded at Coconut Groove studio in Kuranda and the other tracks by a producer in Rockhampton.
Vivien is a versatile singer known for her distinct soulful voice and whether it’s a pop tune or a rock anthem she is sure to deliver an emotionally charged vocal performance.
Motivated by her own journey as well as the stories of others, Vivien writes about her life experiences touching on the raw emotions of love, life and loss creating an experience she likes to refer to as “music for the soul.
