Livi Yiu is a ray of sunshine on a cloud day. A singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist, Livi combines the bright, upbeat sound of the ukulele with the resonating bass of the cello to create unique songs that will not only lift your mood but pull on your heart strings as well. Singing with a voice that is sweet yet strong, Livi also performs in her songs with the guitar, piano, melodica, xylophone, and bass ukulele. Even though she is influenced by a wide spectrum of artists, from Jack Johnson to the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Usher to Queen, Livi uses her own experiences to fill her lyrics with tales of life, love, and everything in between.
Livi Yiu found her passion at an early age and has always advocated that music is the universal language. She moved from Hong Kong to the United States when she was just twelve-years-old and didn't speak a word of English, but this life-changing experience taught her an important lesson: music can be understood in any language. Livi has gone on to share her music in Los Angeles at the House of Blues on the Sunset Strip, Genghis Cohen, Witzend, Republic of Pie, and busking on the 3rd Street Promenade, as well as internationally, like at the Wanch in Hong Kong. She currently lives in Portland, OR where she looks forward to spreading the language of her music to all those who are listening.
