Born in Philadelphia Vivian Green was raised in a home where Motown and other R&B classics were always playing. At fifteen she began to record at multi-platinum group Boyz II Men’s studio and soon received her first professional songwriting credit for the song “Dear God” from the group’s platinum selling album Evolution.
Determined to be a recording artist, Green continued to write and record relentlessly. Her mature, sultry voice and knowledge of the material allowed her to perform in some of Philadelphia’s premiere clubs at an early age.
At 19 Vivian landed a recording deal with Sony Music and released her debut album A Love Story in 2002. The album contained her first #1 hit “Emotional Roller Coaster”. The album and single were ultimately certified Gold.
Her second album Vivian released in 2005, produced her second #1 hit “Gotta Go Gotta Leave”.
In 2015 Vivian signed with producer and recording artist Kwamè Holland’s label Make Noise Recordings (Capitol Records). The first release was Vivid written & produced by Vivian & Kwamè. This garnered her biggest hit in 10 yrs with “Get Right Back To My Baby”. The single reached #2 on the R&B charts & garnered Vivian a Nomination for a Soul Train Award. The album also included the song “Grown Folks Music (Work)” which was a top 15 Billboard Adult R&B hit.
Vivian & Kwamè followed up with the album VGVI in 2017. The single “I Don’t Know” quickly became Vivian’s 7th top 10 R&B hit.
In 2019 Vivian Green and Make Noise records joined forces with The SoNo Recording Group for her 7th studio album Love Absolute. Once again produced by Kwamè along with Vivian, the album keeps her energetic tone while her writing dives deeper into a soulful vibe. Vivian touches on romance, heartache, pain, self-love and the as always socially conscious issues. With guest appearances from Ghostface Killah on “Light Up”, Mike Philips on the classic W.C. Handy tune “Harlem Blues”, and even her family members including her sister and son Jordan.
