Biography


Vivien is influenced directly by life around her. Her songs are generally positive ways at looking at things that at times are not so positive... heart ache, bereavement, family and life in general, all feature in her songs.
Vivien only grew the confidence to sing in public three years ago, but since then, has supported Charlie Pride on his UK tour, supported Sandi Thom, appeared on television and performed over 75 gigs in the year of moving to Glasgow from the Highlands, where she lived for 6 years.
Vivien was born and brought up in a village called Carmunnock, on the outskirts of Glasgow, and then moved up north when she was 18 with her mother and some of her sisters after the split of her parents.
Vivien decided that for the sake of her career, she should pack up her car, once again, and head for the Glasgow city lights and venues to further her career. It was obviously the correct decision to make.
