Biography

There is more than one artist with the name Shiv.

1. New Haven, CT's Shiv was a punk trio influenced by the aggressive noise bands who called the Amphetamine Reptile label home. They put out their debut, Flayed & Ashamed, in 1996.

2. Shiv plays an interesting mix of modern d-beat/dark hardcore and some mostly 80's influenced metal (think Paradise Lost, Judas Priest etc.). Their demo/ep/what-ever-you-wanna-call-it can be found @ http://subvultures.net/mp3.html and it contains three furious, uncomfortably dark songs with crushingly fierce vocals and a cold atmosphere which even some black or doom bands would envy.

3. Australian, Melburn Hardcore punk band.

4. shiv is a DJ turned singer-songwriter/producer based in Dublin with a unique sound and a varied musical background. Born in Zimbabwe to a musical family and then moving to Ireland at age 5, shiv's sound is influenced by the music that moulded her childhood and mastered by the mindful attention she applies to her craft.
Though she studied Psychology in college and planned to pursue a career in Educational Psychology, a song she wrote & sang for her sisters Maid of Honour speech and shared to Youtube, after being scouted soon her lifelong hobby became a serious career path. shiv's music is a unique blend of R&B and Low-Fi Hip Hop, with elements of Soul and Neo-Soul. In recent years shiv's work has captured the attention of UK and Irish radio stations such as 2FM and BBC, as well as being featured in Hotpress, Goldenplec, and COLORSXSTUDIOS. In 2020 shiv has moved up in the Irish music scene and beyond, and continues amid a challenging new musical environment to soothe us with her silky-sweet voice, soulful lyrics, and warm hazy instrumentals.
