“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 nostalgia, a longing for the old yet something never heard before. Beautifully hard to pin down this fleeting rainbowed Billy Joel, Freddie Mercury, Sara McLachlan, Jaques Brel, David Bowie, Leonard Cohen, Tori Amos and Regina Spektor.
Rivky’s latest, produced by Grammy winning Pop Artist, Amy Lee, Evanescence:

Minimally influenced by radio mall music, some Jewish cassettes as a kid but mostly just silence filtered through. Rivky was raised by a Venezuelan mother and an Israeli father in the Amish-like Hasidic cloistered walls of Boro Park, cut off from mainstream culture with strict dress codes. A hidden prodigy with a brain sensory disorder, Rivky was recently 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 remains an autodidact but walks the halls of Juilliard while she continues writing poetry, recording and painting at her home in Brooklyn. Download music here, https://rivky.bandcamp.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 also selling art to collectors such as Sheila Gray, wife of Macy’s President, including a recent painting published in Yale’s literary magazine. At the age of eleven the discovery of an old piano collecting dust was salvation, training herself in piano, vocals, composing and painting. Rivky performs live when she’s able to. https://rivkygee.com/artist/# jp-carousel-686
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 Tamale. Yes. It’s as good as it sounds. Just show her your pantry.
