An act maturing with every show, and now displaying that precious ability to write songs that capture an audience's heart. Anthony John Clarke

jiva’s songs are eminently companionable creations, replete with pleasing choruses and writing that espouses both wistful reminiscence and sensible, positive life-philosophy. Dave Kidman

Based in the north east of England, jiva regularly travel further afield and are available to play at folk clubs, concert venues, festivals, corporate and social functions, fundraisers, coffee mornings, care homes, etc (with our own state of the art Bose L1 Model 2 sound system - or AER acoustic amp setup for small intimate venues - if required)... or even a 'house concert' in your front room!

jiva provided tonight’s support (for Jez Lowe) with 6 songs, 4 of which were self written, all excellently delivered on beautiful Taylor 6 and 12-string guitars, with brilliant harmonies in which you could hear a pin drop. ‘Two Old Friends’ especially was magnificent – lots of lovely descending bass lines and some wizzo dextrous displays from Jimmy in ‘When’. They made such an impression in their 30-minute slot - inciting some chorus singing on their own lovely songs, ‘Best Friends’, ‘Different Dreams’, and 'One More Song'. The question in many locals’ voices at half time was another ‘When?’ – when can they have them back? Rothbury Roots
