“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 is a writer-painter-vocalist-banterer living with a form of schizophrenia, trying to get by in NYC just like any other old lunatic. An advocacy speaker giving musical performances while speaking of her lived experiences to students and mental health initiatives, shining a light on psychosis. Her music has been nominated by the IMEA Award and produced by Grammy-winning Amy Lee of Evanescence. Her career jump started composing for Off-Broadway where she met her bestie and 2 fingered Cello talent Brian Sanders. They play when they can and she keeps on keeping on when she can. With a giggle and a wink and one rolling tear for an added dose of a high end Jaques Brelian-Freddie Mercury Bourgeois.
