AViVA implores her listeners to be themselves as she encourages them to continue expressing themselves and taking ownership of their uniqueness.

A multidisciplinary artist, AViVA has just released her debut novel “SELF/LESS” via Macmillan this past month. Set within a closed society in which all forms of self-expression and creativity are outlawed, the book follows its 17-year-old protagonist Teddy as she rebels against her upbringing and discovers a secret world beneath the walled-in city where she was raised.

Driven by a mission of uplifting and uniting outcasts everywhere, the Sydney-born, LA Based multidisciplinary artist has built up a strong community of fans she lovingly refers to as “Outsiders”. An unstoppable creative force, she spent 2021 releasing new music while gearing up to deliver her debut novel “SELF/LESS” Pan Macmillan (available now.)
