This morning, EILE brings you Los Angeles-based pop/Americana singer-songwriter, RIVVRS, and his latest powerful single, Don’t Give Up On Me, a heart-wrenching ballad, where he pleads for his love not to give up on him towards the end of a relationship.
This is the lead single from his latest full length album, Cosmic Dream, which is due for release in 2018. The track starts off with the verse section pared right back, with just slow piano and single beats, and then comes in with a sudden loud and exciting intensity for the chorus. Rivvrs has been collaborating with other musicians on his latest project and says:
“Music is a connection, and if you’re the only force it doesn’t always work. Co-writing is where I can get out of my head and open the creativity up into a place I won’t arrive on my own.”
He writes so that people can identify with what’s going on in their own lives, and says:
“I hope people listen to the songs that I have, and can somehow hear what is happening in their own lives. Everyone wants to feel a connection.”
He has over 30 song placements on network television shows, and over eight million Spotify streams. His debut single, I Will Follow You, was written into the script of an episode of About A Boy in 2014, and these ongoing sync usages allow for a full-time living as a musical professional. “It’s been a real privilege to continue without having to grind,” he says.
The video was filmed and directed by Noah Applebaum – Produced by Alan Stephens
