​“I am drawn to Rivky by her raw talent. What I love about her as an artist is the strength in her vulnerability- absolutely beautiful. I can’t wait to hear more from her!” –Grammy Winner, Amy Lee, Evanescence

Rivky radiates a folky, bluesy, caba-rocker, Jacques Brelian, Joplin-esque sweaty mess by the end of a song, a melodic nostalgia, a longing for the old days yet something never heard before. Beautifully hard to pin down, a fleeting rainbow of a Billy Joel, Freddie Mercury, Jaques Brel, David Bowie, Amy Winehouse, Sarah Vaughan, Sarah McLachlan, Leonard Cohen, Tori Amos and Regina Spektor.

Rivky’s latest, produced by Grammy winning Pop Artist, Amy Lee, Evanescence:

Sounds of pastime radio mall music, perhaps some Jewish cassettes but mostly just silence, was her backdrop. Rivky was raised in the Amish-like Hasidic cloistered walls of Boro Park, a hidden prodigy invited to a stage, jump-starting her career Off-Broadway, releasing an Album-EP, Angel Sings The Blues, with Cellist Brian Sanders, bringing them to stages like The Kennedy Center and events featuring legendary Suzanne Vega. Rivky currently studies at Juilliard while she continues writing, recording and painting at her home in Brooklyn. www.rivkygee.com

“A powerful, powerful singer. Capable of reaching notes too high and low for most -and capable of hitting them with emotion.” –Howard Bloom, Former publicist for Billy Joel and Prince.

Rivky tip-toes the NY scene, reading her poetry, painting, selling to collectors like Sheila Gray, wife of Macy’s President, including a recent painting published in Yale‘s literary magazine. At the age of eleven she taught herself piano, singing, composing and painting.

Rivky mostly spends time in her kitchen or yours, feeding people, like a good Mamaleh should. Hosting “Culinary Concerts” to nourish tummy AND soul! Current recipes: Pistachio Bourbon Butter and a really mean “Curryaki” Matzoh Ball. Yes. It’s as good as it sounds. Just show her your pantry.
