Viva releases Rhinestones & Rust on Tuesday, October 9. The album is more roots-rock leaning, moving on from the outlaw-glam of her previous releases.
Viva has played everywhere from Bonnaroo with Cyro Baptista to Monterey Jazz Fest with Peter Apfelbaum. She has produced sell out music, burlesque and variety shows at The Slipper Room and Joe's Pub, and is one of the few females to have been featured in Guitar Player Magazine (2009). In 2011 she made her NYC theatrical debut as the musician in Taylor Mac's play WAAFME, which the NY Times hailed as one of 2011's ten best. She will also be performing with him throughout this next year as part of his 24 hour-long concert of imperfection.
For the past 3 years, Viva has delighted audiences regularly at NYC's finest underground party, Rubulad, sharing the stage with acts like The Beets and Lady Rizo.
Viva will be on tour through the Northeast starting this week and through September, hitting the East Coast and Midwest in October and November, anchored by a CD Release Show at Sullivan Hall in NYC on Wednesday, October 10 at 9pm.
