The word JIVA (jee-vuh) means the living soul. For this Detroit based band music and soul go hand in hand. Thier sound is a mix of rock and R&B, kind of a Hendrix meets Prince vibe. Rock influences include Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and Jimi Hendrix, where Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson round out a R&B feel. Fans and critcs have described Jiva as "modern rock with a classic soul".
Jiva's single Set Me Free made its mark on FM radio in Detroit as well as college stations and other FM radio across the midwest and earned the band a spot on Detroit's 89Xs Homeboys show Best of Detroit for 2008.. The singles Crazy and Rise have been featured on Ann Delisi's Essential Music Show on WDET 101.9 FM. JIVA's music has also been featured on various films and TV shows including Mob Wives, Flipping Out, Last Call with Carson Daly, and a Madden EA sports commercial.
Jiva recently released our new album Breathe which is available available digitally through jivamusic.net, iTunes, Amazon and Napster.
