Being occasionally uncategorizable, it is without a doubt a Vivienne Aerts Jazz Performance is unique and personal. Through her music, Vivienne aims to create an intimate connection between herself and the audience. She plays in band formation, duo, solo, supplemented with synthesizer, loopstation and effects. Vivienne surprises, challenges and tells stories. Her lyrics travel to the core of recognition; talk to the soul and open a barrel of emotions. Heartbreaking, singing of happiness, sometimes humorous, she tells about the things that make life beautiful.
