Discover The Artist: shiv
The rising R&B star burst on the scene in 2020 with the debut EP 'Me 2 Me'.
‘Discover the Artist’ is our blog series where we introduce you to artists you might not have heard of yet… but need to listen to.
Zimbabwean-Irish singer-songwriter shiv is rightfully being tipped as one of the next r&b voices: honing her craft in delicate yet personal storytelling along with self-taught production sets this young star apart. Understated tracks that immediately pull at the heart strings, her debut EP is an honest journey of what it’s like to be human and to feel every feeling by letting go of any anxiety stored up inside. The future looks bright for this young star.
Garnering plaudits across the breadth of the music media with singles ‘You and I’, ‘Hold Me’ and ‘Letting You Know’, the journey of discovery for this young talent has been rapid. With soulful, r&b and melodic tinges throughout the record, it shows vulnerability and the crippling fear that most young adults encounter throughout growing up.

Written, recorded and produced entirely by shiv in the space of a year, the six-track EP is an exploration into the artist’s inner world. “It was only when I listened to these songs in a particular order that I felt I was truly immersed in the story I had been trying so hard to tell,” explains Shiv. “This EP is essentially a look into my relationship with myself and my creative process.”
