Vivien Aisi – Take me There

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 23rd!

Recorded and mixed by Damien Codotto at Purple Sound Studio in Cairns, “Take Me There” was then mastered in Melbourne by Nicholas Di Lorenzo. The track features band members Jochem van der Reijden on guitar, Warwick Pardey on keyboard, Andrew Matheson on bass, Eamonn Sheehan on drums, and multi-instrumentalist Matt Gerdes adds melodic fills with his saxophone.

Vivien explains the meaning behind the track, “Take Me There is written about my love for music and where I want it to take me. All my hopes and aspirations, inline with my relationship with music, have been a rollercoaster where I have struggled to fit into the industry, juggle a healthy balance of work, family, and at the same time stay true to who I am as a performer/singer/songwriter. I enjoy a variety of genres and don’t really write to suit a particular style. I allow creativity to take me there and produce what is authentic to me at the moment. It was a good break from all the heavy emotional stuff I generally express through my songwriting.”

With over ten years of experience performing at various venues, bands and ensembles, 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 theAustralian 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!
