Vivian Green

Vivian Green, critically acclaimed singer, songwriter, actress and activist, returns to Bethesda Blues & Jazz bringing back her signature sound, influenced by a variety of musical genres.

Inspired by her mother, Ms. Green sang in church at the age of five, began playing the piano at age eight, and writing songs at eleven.  Her first break in songwriting came at seventeen, writing with Boyz II Men.  The next one came at nineteen when she joined Jill Scott's tour as a backup singer.   

In 2001, she signed with Columbia Records and released her first album, A Love Story, with “Roller Coaster” as the smash hit single.  In 2003, she received three nominations for the ninth annual Soul Train Lady of Soul Awards for Best R&B/Soul Single; R&B/Soul Album of the Year; and Best R&B/Soul or Rap New Artist.  In that same year, she took another direction and landed a small part in the TV drama, American Dreams, going on to take a role in DeLovely, a film about the life of Cole Porter.

In 2005, she wrote the music and assisted in producing her second album, Vivian, which debuted at number five on the Billboard charts.  In 2007, She appeared on Guru's album Jazzmatazz, Vol. 4: The Hip-Hop Jazz Messenger: Back to the Future.  Her third album, Beautiful, was released in 2010.   

“Longevity relies on progression. A lasting catalog evolves with its creator, growing, changing, and expanding in tandem with the artist.”  Vivian Green continued to move progressively forward with the release of Vivid in 2015.  The album, going Top 10, earned her highest chart entry in over a decade on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart and garnered acclaim from Vibe and YouKnowIGotSoul, for a bona fide hit in the form of “Get Right Back To My Baby.” While she cumulatively averaged over 110K Spotify streams monthly, the single quickly approached the 2-million mark.

In 2017, Vivian began recording with Kwamé.  The first single from that collaboration, “I Don’t Know” illuminated her progression by including Reggae guitar and drums, infused with a scorching verse prior to the delivery of a soulful, sexy confession during the hook of the song.

“I love songwriting and want to take that into different avenues,” Green told Billboard.  “I want to do whatever comes across the table.”
