Introducing Livvi Franc

January 29, 2008

2008 seems to be the year for big things coming from Barbadian artists, an for once we’re not talking about Rihanna.

Also making her solo debut at the 2008 Barbados Music Awards was Livvi Franc, who signed with mega label Jive Records late last year.

Performing two songs, Bliss and Underground Sunshine her crystal clear voice calmed many a savage beast while her young sexy look riled them back up again. But this songstress has more to her credit than just being able to croon out sweet notes to perfection, she’s also quite the lyricist. Much like her counterpart Shontellle, she plays a major role in the songs she sings, drawing inspiration from such pop artists as Nelly Furtado and Dido to the classic stylings of Etta James. She is sure to have people talking.
