Behind the Artist

ABOUT THE ARTIST

   

Vivien Aisi is described as one of far north QLD’s most talented singers and has her heart set on the big stage. She discovered her love of singing from an early age, and music has been a major part of her life and upbringing. Vivien is originally from Papua New Guinea and moved to Cairns to further
her career opportunities.

Motivated by her own journey as well as the stories of others, Vivien writes about life experiences touching on raw emotions and expressions, creating an experience she likes to
refer to as, ‘music for the soul’. Now she is back with her new single, “Take Me There” – coming
September 23 this year.

With over ten years of experience performing at various venues, bands, Vivien released her first debut EP, Lost In Time, during COVID-19 lockdowns.

She has graced the stages from The Tanks Art Centre to kick start Grassroots Series 2021 to Cairns Eco Fiesta, and in 2022 Vivien was
selected as Regional Delegate for the Australian Woman in Music Awards & Conference.

Vivien’s aim is to take her music from the far north and showcase her versatility as a singer, songwriter and a
performer on stages and venues throughout Australia. Catch her new single, “Take Me There” on
September 23!

Vivien Aisi, Lost in Time (EP)

(Independent) ***

Providing backing vocals for fellow Cairns artist Mc Pyrit (more on him next week) inspired PNG product Vivien Aisi to try her hand at her own EP, and the results showcase the versatility of her velvety tones. Opening the set in affirmative style is Kiss the Stars, while doo-wop meets smoky lounge music on Yesterday. The slow percussive march of Nine to Five bemoans the soul-crushing workaday routine, while piano power ballad Just Leave is the penultimate peak, and she maintains the high with the outro Lost in Time.
