Vivian’s bio – every woman..

 ‘If art is to nourish the root of our culture, society must set the artist free to follow his vision wherever it takes him.’ John Fitzgerald Kennedy – United States President1-061

You have to believe in or feel something about what you’re saying if you want anyone else to buy into it, explains Vivian Sessoms with absolute certainty. It’s important to me to mean what I say when I’m writing or singing about something. It can’t simply be just a collection of words. For Vivian, a life surrounded by music have ingrained the passion and the power of music in her.

Born and raised in Harlem, Vivian, whose mother was a session/jingle-singer, and whose father was a flautist/percussionist (who’s played with the likes of James Brown), learned the wonder of music at a young age. Surrounded by nightclubs, churches and regular jam sessions at her family’s home, she was already singing by the time she could talk. Growing up, there was always music to express the way I was feeling. I was so immersed in it, that I kind of viewed music as a kind of backdrop to my life, she recalls.

Vivian Sessoms

Hailed by Rolling Stone and Billboard as an “exquisite” singer, Vivian Sessoms has performed all over the world with some of the biggest names in music. A wunderkind that got her start opening for Marvin Gaye at the age of 9, she’s worked with legendary artists like Michael Jackson, Cher, Stevie Wonder and many others throughout the course of her multi-faceted career. Her new album LIFE, is her third studio effort and first foray into the realm of jazz, and if you’re familiar with Vivian and her music, then you will be expecting a twist. How about a jazz record, served up with a side of funk, and beautifully garnished with lush orchestrations? Backed by a rotating lineup of all-star musicians, her first record in several years explores “How we as humans can come together to make a difference. I just know that when I hear a song I love, it takes me someplace beautiful, music has that power. I hope this music will inspire that.”

Press Quotes

ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE – Aidin Vaziri

“And Sentimental breezes by with a slightly bossa nova-ish, ’60s French movie feel and features an exquisite vocal by Vivian Sessoms”.

BILLBOARD MAGAZINE – Gail Mitchell

“On this album, Sessoms’ clear, exquisite voice (which has backed Patti Austin, P-Diddy and Rob Thomas) shimmers against a percolating R&B/jazz backdrop”.
