Behind the Artist

ABOUT THE ARTIST

   

Vivien Aisi is described as a sultry, soulful voice -one of Far North Queensland's upcoming performers. Discovering her love of singing from an early age, music has been a major part of her life and upbringing. Vivien, originally from Papua New Guinea, moved to Cairns to further her career opportunities.

Motivated by her own journey as well as the stories of others, Vivien writes about life, creating an experience she likes to refer to as, ‘music for the soul’ blending various genres embellished with Soul and R&B undertones.

Vivien has graced stages such as The Tanks Art Centre, Courthouse Gallery, Munro Martin Parklands to a residency amongst the Crystalbrook Collection Hotels and many more venues. 

With her Debut EP under her belt, Vivien was selected as one of eight Regional Delegates for the Australian Woman in Music Awards & Conference in May 2022 followed by Women In Music Mentor Program - Professional Development which she is currently undertaking under the guidance of the Australian Independent Record Labels Association 

Vivien’s aim is to take her music from the Far north and highlight her versatility as a singer, songwriter, and a performer on stages throughout Australia and around the world.

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.
