Kiven (Kee-vehn) is authentic music created by four college students based in Southern California. We are influenced by all sorts of bands but the ones who come through prevalently in their songs thus far are Thrice, MuteMath, Minus the Bear, Radiohead, and Incubus.
We approached our new EP with no real goal in mind in terms of sound and had to wrestle with about 12 songs before we went in studio to record these four. We are really proud of what we've done and we can't wait to record more music to share with anyone who wants to listen in the near future.
The band consists of Tyler Demorest, Matt Cohen, Danny Schnair, and Teddy Boldt. They have all been in their fair share of bands and have used that experience to approach Kiven in a very organized, mature manner.
We focus on the songs and how we can share those songs with the masses. It starts with getting a good recording, but the backbone of music is the live experience. We spend a lot of time preparing for our shows to keep crowds interested. Thanks for your support, we really appreciate it. www.myspace.com/kivenmusic
