New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Through compelling songs and charismatic performances, singer-songwriter RIVVRS radiates an endearing and optimistic vision. His music connects the authenticity of Americana with the accessibility of pop, framed by the artist's empathetic voice and eminently approachable songcraft.
His latest full-length Cosmic Dreams is due for a 2018 release, and the lead single from the project "Don't Give Up on Me" is now available on Spotify and other listening platforms. While maintaining an extensive performing and touring calendar,RIVVRS previously tracked the EP Hold On, a full-length release Unfamiliar Skin, and a variety of singles to augment these projects. Now co-producing his next release in Utah with Joshua James
he says that collaborating with other songwriters is fullfilling. "Music is a connection, and if you are the only force it doesn't always work.Co.writing is where I can get out my head and open the creativity up into a place I won't arrive on my own."
A Northern California native now residing in Los Angeles, RIVVRS-nee Brandon
Zahursky- has over 30 song placements on network television shows, and over twelve million Spotify streams. Beginning with his debut single "I Will Follow You
", written into the script of an episode of About a Boy in 2014, these ongoing sync usages allow for a fulltime living as a musical professional. "It's been a real privilege to continue without having to grind," he says.
Buoyed by an animated onstage charm, he commands audiences with just his voice and an accoustic guitar but he believes that his songs shine with a full band. " I love playing music with people. To me, that's where the connection and chemistry come in, and where the songs open up."
As he now expands his audience through successive national tours, RIVVRS moves into a new phase in his creative future. " I spent the accumulation of my young adult years catching up, and realising that I could be the person I want to be," he says. And he believes that interpretation is the power behind his music. " I hope people listen to the songs that I have, and can somehow hear what is happening in their own lives. Everyone wants to feel a connection."
