Already on the radar of some major players, Viv’s songs have been supported by the likes of Radio 1, Ministry of Sound Radio and sister label of Shogun Audio, SGN:LTD.

Recognised for her vocal and songwriting ability, Viv was selected to write and record a remix of Zero T’s song ‘Refusal’ which is now part of the Drum & Bass Course at Pointblank Music School. Viv then went on to catch the eyes and ears of over 100,000 viewers when she took part in the Ableton Push Challenge: Viv wrote and recorded an undeniably clever and catchy song in less than an hour, all whilst being broadcast live on YouTube!

Viv followed up with two releases on Dispatch Recordings – featuring on DLR’s ‘Seeing sounds’ album and Amoss’ ‘Shadow Theories’ E.P.
