Bio

Usually found hunched over her laptop or with her head wedged inside her makeshift wardrobe vocal booth, 21 year-old producer/multi-instrumentalist/singer Felicity Vanderveen creates her warm, soulful and earthy tunes. Her introspective music translates in a way that is there for you in the darker and more somber moments, yet simultaneously at the forefront of your mind when someone asks: ‘You want the AUX cord?’

Her DIY sound pairs sophisticated Neo-soul footnotes with dreamy trip-hop textures, and has been accurately described by Earmilk as “a genre-fusing act... making her mark with her unique pop-tinged soul music.”

In a live setting, her homegrown tunes are brought to life by her 4-piece live band. FELIVAND have performed alongside the likes of Tora, Odette, Tyne-James Organ, ASTA, Golden Vessel and CLEA to name a few.

Yeah this is nice.. "Ebb & Flow" makes me feel just fine. The R&B/Neo-Soul textures all layered in on the sweetest dreamy layer cake. Got that late arvo, Lofty apartment vibe to it, I say cut that slice FELIVAND and let them eat cake.

No Olympic Games in 2020 means we don't get to watch athletes smashing records this year. That's where FELIVAND steps in - all year she's been beating her personal best, and now FELIVAND has dropped what I reckon is my favourite track of hers yet.

Looking very forward to the EP this week lady! This feels balanced, gracious and oozes through with so much ease.
