Hey! My name is Shivan, and I’m from Davis, California. I hope, like most, that my music speaks for itself – but to be sure, my heart lies in songwriting and the complete product that it can hold..though you will hear a whole spectrum of influences in my mish-mash of creative projects.

My musical journey starts like most choose-your-own adventures of its type: I was a teenager and I found solace in my CDs, so I picked up a guitar and a pen. And the rest really is history. I never stopped writing since that time, and I have played in many bands and collaborated with many other artists. I learned the art of recording and processing audio through my work at a recording studio at UC Berkeley during my college years, and have since set up my own recording rig in my bedroom. Most of what you hear is the result of long nights in my room, learning as I go, and re-tracking instruments and vocals until I’ve irked everyone within earshot.

Though I’ve been at it for about a decade now, I’ve been busy doing a lot of other things (I just finished my Ph.D. in neuroscience at UCLA studying genetic programs that underlie learning and memory!) – but my musical reach is growing and I am SO excited to pour myself into it now that my time is opening up. Please contact me at contact.shivan.music@gmail.com and let me know what you think!!

Peace and love,
