The Onlies, Vivian Leva

The Onlies (Leo Shannon, Riley Calcagno, and Sami Braman) are prominent young interpreters of Old-time appalachian music. They have also developed an individual sound, with original songs that “demonstrate an enviable ability to move beyond the immediacy of their lives to touch at deeper truths, and...covers of traditional songs and tunes (that) harken to the original but are unleashed with the kind of wild, free abandon that only youth provides” (Kithfolk). Their albums have charted on radio stations around the country, and they have had the opportunity to perform and collaborate with Elvis Costello, Darol Anger, Bruce Molsky, Laurie Lewis, Altan, Tristan Clarridge, and John Herrmann.

Vivian Leva Music is a singer, songwriter, and guitarist from Lexington, VA. She grew up singing and playing traditional Appalachian and country music and attending fiddle festivals with her family. When she was nine, she began performing with her father, James Leva, and at 15, she was featured on her father’s album, " All Over the Map," which included one of Vivian’s original songs. In 2014 she traveled to France with the collaborative troupe, The Lost Tribe of Country Music, which included James Leva, Danny Knicely, Al Tharp, Cedric Watson, Jerron Paxton, Matthew Olwell, Emily Oleson, and Matty Gordon.
