Through compelling songs and charismatic performances, singer-songwriter RIVVRS radiates an endearing and optimistic vision. His music connects the authenticity of Americana with the accessibility of pop, framed by the artist’s empathic voice and eminently approachable songcraft.

A Northern California native now residing in Los Angeles, RIVVRS — née Brandon Zahursky – has over 30 song placements across network television shows, and over 8 million Spotify streams.

Beginning with his debut single “I Will Follow You,” written into the script of an episode of “About A Boy” in 2014, these ongoing sync usages allow for a full time living as a musician.

His latest full-length album Cosmic Dream is due for a 2018 release, and the lead single Don’t Give Up On Me is now available on Spotify and other listening platforms. While maintaining an
extensive touring calendar, RIVVRS previously tracked a full-length release Unfamiliar Skin, the EP Hold On, and a variety of singles to augment these projects. Now co-producing his next
release in Utah with Joshua James, he says that collaborating with other songwriters is fulfilling.

Buoyed by an animated onstage charm, he commands audiences with just his voice and an acoustic guitar, but he believes that his songs shine with a full band. “I love playing music with
other people. To me, that’s where the connection and chemistry come in, and where the songs open up.”

Raised on classic rock courtesy of his father, his early years were spent moving with his blended family across California, Washington and Oregon, then back to the Bay. It was a
nontraditional upbringing. He remembers at one point staying in a halfway house with his parents, a shelter where addicts could get clean.

As he now expands his audience through successive national tours, RIVVRS moves into a new phase in his creative future. “I spent the accumulation of my young adult years catching up, and
realizing that I could be the person I want to be,” he says. And he believes that interpretation is the power behind his music. “I hope people listen to the songs that I have, and can somehow
hear what is happening in their own lives. Everyone wants to feel a connection.”
The Guest And The Host
The Guest And The Host
The moniker of music maker Andrew Heringer, formerly of Milo Greene.

Admittedly obsessed with the classic rock sounds and songwriting of the 60's and 70's - Heringer has holed up in a house in the hills underneath the Hollywood sign that he's transformed into a recording studio that he calls Mirror Wall.

Taken from lectures by Qigong master and spiritual teacher George Falcon, the moniker "The Guest and the Host" represents the separation between awareness and the content of awareness.

As a writer, producer and mixer he's spent the last few years honing his sound collaborating with other artists (morgxn, Madi Diaz, Avid Dancer , Madi Sipes & The Painted Blue, Crywolf , Jens Kuross, Colyer, Luke Wade) - finding moments in between to build a new relationship with his musical identity - The Guest and the Host.
