Moving from his homeland of Haiti to Connecticut at age 6, R&B/Soul vocalist RIIV (a.k.a., Riverson Joseph) led a troubled childhood for many years. Eventually landing in a group home, it was there that he—figuratively and literally—found his voice.
“RIIV enjoys… making people feel something.”
With iconic influences such as, Ne-Yo, Trey Songz, Brian McKnight, Maxwell, and Michael Jackson guiding his sound, RIIV has just released his debut single & video, Beautiful.
A classic R&B/Soul melody & beat with modern EDM underpinnings meld tastefully with a touch of island-living tones and—of course RIIV’s made-for-the-genre vocal timbre—in this ambient ode to new love. The silky smooth Beautiful is the sound-score to the perfect day off on the beach.
