About The Artist

     Vivaswan Shetty is a Recording Artist, Songwriter, Record Producer, Vocal Producer, Audio Engineer, 

Disc Jockey, Film maker, Actor, and Model.

 

Better known by his moniker "VivaSwan" , is a live and digital artist

born in  Mangalore, India, he is currently residing in Los Angeles, CA.

INITIALLY MOVING TO LOS ANGELES TO PURSUE HIS PROFESSIONAL ATHLETIC &

ACTING CAREER (AFTER SWEEPING ALL THE AWARDS AT THE INTERNATIONAL

PRESENTATION OF PERFORMERS AND BREAKING THE INDIAN MEN’S NATIONAL

RECORD IN THE 200M IN 2011), VIVASWAN WAS INTRODUCED INTO THE INDUSTRY SIDE

OF MUSIC THROUGH UMG, WHICH FORCED HIM TO STRUCTURE HIS RAW TALENT AND

ADAPT SO HE COULD KEEP UP WITH THE PROS IN THE ROOM LIKE TIMBALAND, TEDDY

RILEY, ETC. SINCE THEN, VIVÁSWAN HAS COLLABORATED WITH MANY DISTINGUISHED

ARTISTS AND PRODUCERS INCLUDING DR. LUKE, VASSAL BENFORD, DJ TIESTO, MAD

DECENT, ELLIOT WOLFE, ELIJAH STORM DANIELS/ROBIN THICKE, JACK EYE JONES,

ALONG WITH MANY OTHERS. HIS STYLE IS DISTINGUISHED BUT NOT LIMITED BY HIS

ANDROGYNOUS, ETHEREAL, AND VERSATILE VOCALS, WHICH ARE UNIQUE IN THE

CURRENT MUSIC MARKET.

IN FACT, MANY WONDER WHERE VIVASWAN GOT HIS VERSATILITY FROM. BORN IN A

UNIQUE 3RD WORLD VILLAGE THAT IS A FUSION OF AFRICAN +INDIAN CULTURE, AND

STILL AN INDIAN CITIZEN TO THIS DAY, VIVASWAN RELOCATED TO BOSTON AT 3 YEARS

OLD. SINCE THEN, HE GONE ON TO MOVE OVER 30 TIMES TIL DATE (FLORIDA, TOKYO,

DETROIT, INDIA, SAN FRANCISCO, LOS ANGELES, ETC). IN THAT TIME, HE TRAVELED

AROUND THE ENTIRE COUNTRY PERFORMING THEATRICALLY FOR ANYWHERE UP TO

15K PEOPLE AT A TIME, AS WELL AS IN THE INDIAN CLASSICAL DANCE ARTS HE WAS

TRAINED IN FOR 8+ YEARS, SOME NEVER BEFORE SEEN LIKE YAKSHAGANA & KOLA (

HIS FATHER WAS THE FIRST EVER TO INTRODUCE THEM TO NORTH AMERICA), AND

THE MORE POPULAR FORMS LIKE BOLLYWOOD AND BHARATANAYAM.

AFTER MOVING TO LA, HE WAS GIVEN MULTIPLE AMAZING OPPORTUNITIES TO

PERFORM AND OPEN UP FOR TALENTED ACTS SUCH AS JHENE AIKO, AKON, ETC.

HOWEVER, EVERYTHING CHANGED WHEN VIVÁSWAN MET SUPER PRODUCER JAY

SINGH. HIS PRODUCTION, COUPLED WITH THE MINDSET AND MUTUAL LOVE OF THEIR

HOMELAND CULTURE, WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY BEING RAISED IN THE URBAN COMMUNITIES OF THE

WESTERN WORLD FORMED A SPECIAL BOND. A PERFECT MARRIAGE OF VIVASWAN’S

VOCALS AND WRITING, AND JAY’S MUSICAL PRODUCTION SET THE STAGE TO

SPEARHEAD THE GLOBAL MOVEMENT THAT HAS COME TO BE KNOWN AS “INDIAN

TRAP.” THROUGH THIS MATRIMONY, THE TWO HOPE TO UNITE NOT ONLY INDIANS

(AND THEIR GLOBAL DIASPORA THAT IS A MAJOR PART OF AFRICAN, CANADIAN,

ENGLISH, AND CARIBBEAN CULTURE) BUT ALSO ANY AND ALL WHO LOVE AND

APPRECIATE INDIAN CULTURE TOGETHER, AND MOBILIZE THEM THROUGH THEIR

ARTISTIC INTEGRITY.

NOT ONLY DOES VIVASWAN THRIVE AS A MUSICAL ARTIST, OUTSIDE OF MUSIC HE

WORKS AS A MODEL AND ACTOR, DOING MAJOR CAMPAIGNS FOR CORPORATE

TREND-SETTERS AND GIANTS SUCH AS TOYOTA (CURRENTLY AIRING DURING THE NBA FINALS) FACEBOOK, APPLE, LYFT, MULTIPLE GOOGLE

ADS, BECOMING THE FACE OF TINDER, AND MUCH MORE.

HE BELIEVES IN BRINGING HIS EXPERIENCE AS AN ACTOR, FILMMAKER, AND MODEL TO HIS

MUSIC VIDEO SETSAND PERFORMANCES SO HE CAN TRULY BRING HIS STORIES TO LIFE.

EACH AND EVERY ONE OF HIS DIFFERENT MASKS BLEND SEAMLESSLY INTO THE MUSIC,

MELTING MULTIPLE WORLDS, ARTS, LOOKS, AND LINGUISTICS (4+ LANGUAGES), TO FINALLY

BRIDGE SOME OF THE WORLD’S MOST POWERFUL CULTURES LIKE NEVER BEFORE.
