Vive is a 6-part vocal group who re-imagining the a cappella sound. These young and talented musicians, mostly recent graduates from the Guildhall School of Music, have already worked with some of the finest names in jazz and a cappella, including Dame Cleo Lane, the Swingle Singers, and Alec Dankworth. Their run of sell-out shows at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2013 received huge critical acclaim — Vive are now one of the hottest young jazz a cappella groups on the circuit.
Consisting of an uncommon line-up of five guys and a girl, Vive combines tight harmonies and award-winning arrangements to create a contemporary yet accessible sound through their covers and original songs. Taking inspiration from artists as diverse as Take 6, the Real Group, and Ella Fitzgerald, Vive brings together pop, fusion, harmony, jazz, and spirituals to create a unique and uplifting sound-world. The result is “a team that works together to bring great melody to life and lift songs up into the air where they belong” — [The Curator, Instrumental].
