About Aviva and the Flying Penguins

Thank you for being with us on our journey as a band for almost ten Years now.  You have supported our first CD release of Painted Truth on December 21st 2012, have helped us raised funds for the upcoming "Key Of You" recorded in 432hz, and have joined us on our Sunday Songwriting journeys and challenges at www.youtube.com/avivasingsout
    This journey began in the town of West Hempstead, Long Island and some parallel universes like South Africa and Atlanta, GA.  Aviva grew up in West Hempstead where she wrote songs for as long as she remembered being alive.  A good student of piano and trumpet, she played in front of her first huge audience with an award winning composition at 8 years old.  She was recognized as Most Musical her Senior year of high school and wasn't sure if her peers knew what musical meant beyond the notes she played.
    No, the heart wrenching experiences that brought the music out of her was mysterious and personal.  To have a career in music without it being her own music felt empty.  And so she found her community of Flying Penguins gathered in Atlanta, GA starting with Simon Xulu.
    Simon Xulu came to the US from apartheid South Africa to tour with a dance troupe including his two brothers.  His real dream has always been music.  Highly talented in singing, dancing and acting, it seems effortless to hear him harmonize as if it is coming from a divine place.  Isaac Xulu joined the band for the second studio album set to release soon enough.
    Bobby Andre is the other penguin staple along with the talented dancing Jenny Nichols.  The multi-cultural band has performed at outside solar-powered stages & festivals, coffee shops, and music venues such as cafe 290, Steve's Live Musice, Smith's Olde Bar, Red Light Cafe, etc.  And has toured up the east coast several times along with Colorado, Michigan and California.  
    For the past 5 years Aviva has been writing a song almost every week or featuring a local songwriter in the weekly youtube  "Sunday Songwriting" She has gotten loads of feedback about the messages and content being much needed positive energy for this often beat down world.  Often she adds motivational talks on her healing journey as well as relaxation exercises and recipes.  She spends 10-60 hrs on each episode including writing, filming, traveling in some cases, and editing.  Up until now as we await Episode #176 (hopefully with the help of Patreon) she has not received any monetary support or sponsorship.
    The album has been halted since the studio she was working with has been under a transformation and thus needs to renegotiate and get more funds.  
      But all is well as the music never stops.  This story continues and shows keep getting booked.  We would love to play at a town near you.  We have accomplished quite a bit with small donors here and there.  We are excited to see what a steady flow of income through dedicated backers like you can do for our mobility, productivity, and growth.
    Besides finishing "Key Of You" as a major milestone we have half a dozen music videos ready to film with proper backing.  And we plan to keep them coming.  We are exciting about what is to come and what is already here.  
    Having your backing allows us to finish these and begin more projects as we hire talented teams of artists and musicians for videos, recordings and tours.  Money facilitates us reaching a broader audience through proper promotion and advertising. And the backing allows us to make a living doing more of what we love, music, with all of its heart wrenching, rich, and inspiring energy. 
Thank you.  
Love You.  
We are honored to share this journey with you.

YES I am going to Hawaii to Film the Hemp Revival Music Video and a team to make this happen isn't cheap.  Top Notch Video Equipment, visuals, actors, dancers and props are gong to blow this message through the roof and I cannot WAIT to show the world how imminent HEMP is for our future with this visual and audio entertainment story that will rock any one who watches it down to their bones. Thank you forever for helping with this co-creation.
