Vivian Punk (Soprano)
Vivian's love for music began at the age of seven years old. Coming from a very musical family, the nature of singing became natural through the influence of her mother and father. Her parents were singers and musicians who would play and sing Christian music every night before she went to bed. This introduced Vivian to her lifelong love of melody. Vivian began her singing career strictly in ensembles throughout primary school to high school. However, in her teenage years she was interested in also making her own original music. From then on, she decided to also focus on becoming a songwriter as well as a singer. This continued as she attended college; she would sing in choirs and sing solo at college events. She decided to make music her major and took classes regarding music theory, music history, and also songwriting. After she graduated from Cal State Dominguez Hills with a B.A. in Music Education, she decided to focus on performing as her career. She’s been working with producers to release her first E.P. which should be out late 2017.
