From his early days as a child plunking out notes on the piano bench next to his grandfather, a jazz pianist, Vivino has tried to make music that comes from his heart. In his current work you can hear the pangs of heartache, the pictorial expression of true love, and the yearning and self-conflict of finding one's own place in the cosmos.
Vivino tries ardently to express these age-old themes in a modern musical fabric before fine-tuning everything with the best musicians he can find in the studio. He has said, "Everything I write about comes out of something I have the urge to express, be it a feeling or an idea or a story that I think is funny or interesting in some way."
Wanting to further bring his music to the world, Vivino put together a group of musicians who have each enjoyed much experience performing around New Jersey and New York at various venues, including Maxwells, Pianos, the Knitting Factory, and the Crash Mansion. Combining the forces of Josh Forsythe (Lead Guitar), Jon Crane (Bass), and Jason Dodds (Drums) they have created a new, eclectic, jazz-tinged pop-rock sound that is sure to delight the listener.
