Aviva Jaye is a musician, performing artist and composer who loves connecting with people at the intersection of heart, brain and art. A vocalist and multi-instrumentalist currently residing in Brooklyn, she is dedicated to empathy and diversity through music. From the studio to the stage, Aviva takes a homespun approach to her own compassionate expression, using minimal acoustic instruments and equipment to share raw material that still shimmers with a certain finesse. Her songwriting is a clear contribution to the refined sound that results, with simple yet haunting motifs and transparent lyrics. Fans of a trained professional who draws from the simplicity of Simon & Garfunkel, the depth of Feist, the clarity of Regina Spektor and the comfort of an old American musical theatre number will be pleased.
Aviva has enjoyed a plethora of musical collaborations from theatre shows and choral concerts to studio albums and live bands, singing, dancing and playing a cadre of instruments along the way. Current group projects include background singing with Emily King, singing and playing keys with EchoBloom, a folk project, and with The Booboo Danger, an old-timey outfit in Brooklyn, songwriting for producers across the web and preparing for an independent release of her original work.
