Vivascene began in September of 2010 with the launch of a series of articles entitled 30 Songs, 30 Years.
After a lifetime of collecting vinyl records, owning an audio store, and devouring every issue of The Absolute Sound, I decided to write about the music that had inspired me over the years. Others joined me – we shared a love of music and writing.
Since our beginning, we have published nearly 2,000 articles. Our mission was always to discuss music that we believed would last, but content volume began to dominate over content quality. In December of 2020 we scaled back and reclaimed our original vision.
We have adopted a new design which enables the creation of Essentials lists from our five areas of interest: Popular Music, Blues, Classical, Country and Jazz. Our goal is to discuss remarkable recordings from all time periods that we deem essential to creating a diverse music library.
Our audience can sample album tracks, as well as Vivascene-curated playlists streamed on Spotify and/or Apple. We continue to write about new music that we think will interest our audience.
