Read what the press is saying about JIVA
" With Zep-worthy riffs, Motown's five-year-old foursome Jiva has pile-driven its way to the forefront of the Detroit Rock scene. Dig It: Soundgarden, Lenny Kravitz, Aerosmith. "
-Mike Breen, Cincinnati CityBeat
"Growing up on the eclectic Motor City music scene, it's no surprise these moody modern rockers have a sound all their own. Mixing alt-rock with R&B, this fierce foursome is like Aerosmith meets Lenny Kravitz."
" Familiarity works when the alt-rock wallop is right, and the Detroit area outfit really nails it on such tracks as "Far Beneath" and especially on "Heavens Too Late"."
-Johnny Loftus, The Metro Times
" You can expect to hear them on rock radio in the next year or so. "
-Scott Wherle, Randomville Magazine
" Jiva's got a sound that many will jam by...Larger than life guitar solos and riffs bring the "attitude" out of Jiva! All tracks are very well produced and uniquely arranged. It's obvious these musicians care about their music. Haunting...Welcome Jiva! "
-Catsask Music and Entertainment Magazine
" Their songs creep up on you; seductive at first, then suddenly shifting into rhythmic overdrive and inevitably carrying you out on a wave of climactic guitar. Good music, powerful performance, what more do you need? "
" Moody modern rock..."
-Adam Graham, The Detroit News
The band specializes in "Gritty Sexy Detroit Rock" that is sure to knock your socks off! Try to think of Black Sabbath, Incubus, and Led Zeppelin rolled into one unit.
-Tyrone Reed, TheMusicSyndicate.com
"The overall stage presence was pleasing, and hard to take your eyes off. They seemed experienced (started in 2001 after all), and all memebers seemed confident in their music, which was mind-blowing to say the least. "
-The Sunflower Live Journal
" This whole band comes across in a different light than most acts out right now. They stick to the basics, and throw their own little twist to create the unique sound that is Jiva. "
-Keith Stanton, Jam Rag Magazine
