Siv Disa is a sullen piano girl for the new millenium. Drawing inspiration from an array of sources spanning from The Supremes to Shostakovich, she writes songs that have been described as both emotional and experimental in their composition. While piano and voice are her primary instruments, Siv also plays the guitar, ukelele, autoharp, and musical saw. Through experimenting with them, she enjoys broadening the scope of her songwriting abilities. At live shows, Siv enjoys playing with an eclectic melange of other musicians and - experimenting with instrumentation. Frequent collaborators include: sitarist Sharmeen Malik, violinist Katherine Kyu Hyeon Lim, drummer Shira Adams, and guitarist Zoe Clayton.
In the summer of 2017 Siv released her first EP entitled "June"- recorded with producer Josh Gold. Lyrically diverse, each song on "June" explores themes common to Siv's work such as feminism, identity, and vulnerability. Looking ahead to 2018 Siv intends to release another EP mid-year, and continues to be actively composing for theater and dance in addition to her songwriting pursuits.
Siv likens herself to a wayward migrating goose, and throughout her life has spent time living in Illinois, North Dakota, New York, and Massachusetts. She currently lives, works, and plays in New York City.
