VIVA releases Rhinestones And Rust this week and is on road through the Fall surrounding the release. The video for “A Thousand Horses” premiered last week at No Depression and features BMX trickster Tory King, a park carousel and the band performing the 6/8 shuffle in a half pipe in Queens. Mia over at AfterEllen picked up the clip as well.
VIVA will be at SULLIVAN HALL in NYC tonight for her CD RELEASE PERFORMANCE and hits the stage at 8:30pm.
Baltimore City Paper recently praised, “Viva has a beautiful voice, solid songwriting chops, and she f*cking shreds the guitar… she and her band are getting down and dirty” and The Daily News in PA affirms, “Fans of rockabilly and old-school rootsy rock should devour the release.”
The Aquarian calls VIVA, “The love child of Joan Jett and Little Richard,” Burlington Free Press anoints her a “guitar wizard” and Scott Bernstein of Glide Magazine’s Hidden Track dubs her, “One of the more inventive guitarists on the scene.”
Vintage Guitar sums, “Viva DeConcini proves she’s a force to be reckoned with if rock and roll is to survive and grow.”
