“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.

A hidden prodigy, scared shipless, navigating, Rivky is an extraordinarily gifted storyteller-singer with lyrical ingenuity, a Jaques Brelian/Kurt Weill/Freddie Mercury nostalgia, living with and sometimes candidly speaking on the awkward subject of psychosis, stigma, being quirky, funny, beautifully messy with unique beat structures, raw, theatrical, spreading light through song and curryaki matzoh-balls, a soulful foodie momma, nourishing audiences. Invited Off-Broadway, self trained in piano, vocals, writing, where began the kickstart album release with her beautiful two fingered friend and cellist Brian Sanders, (ah yes, a kook and a cripple, kismet at its best, ey!), performing at The Kennedy Center, stages featuring Suzanne Vega and Rivky’s latest, “Hear Me Mr. Honey”, produced by Grammy winning Amy Lee, Evanescence. Rivky was raised in the Jewish, Amish like, “frum” world, cut off from mainstream, prohibited from singing publicly in front of men. She was born to a Venezuelan mother and an Israeli father, making her mix up some Ay dios and Oy vey cocktails everywhere.

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
