With the release of her debut album “Running On Empty”, rising hard rocker VILIVANT comes out of the gate with an elegant fury
VILIVANT (Julia Gentile) is a Canadian hard rock/alternative rocker that quickly gained success in the music scene at the very young age of 3, starting with the piano and picking up the guitar and bass along the way. Drawing heavily from influences such as HALESTORM, THE PRETTY RECKLESS and fellow Canadian rockers THREE DAYS GRACE, she would soon after create her first self-titled EP.
Her first two singles ‘Never Again,’ and ‘Stabilized’ saw radio airplay, bringing the tracks to #89 and #98 on the top 100 Canadian rock radio charts; thus garnering a fanbase across the country and internationally.
Though LIVE shows were at a standstill during the pandemic, she continued to play at virtual festivals. During this time she was selected as a Top 5 Regional Finalist for Jim Beam’s National Talent Search and won the Toronto Region with her LIVE off-the-floor performance video of her song ‘Stabilized.’
VILIVANT was also given the opportunity to open for Canadian award winning rocker Lee Aaron at the sold-out El Mocambo. After receiving the Juried Sound Recording grant from FACTOR Canada, VILIVANT released her full-length album titled, “Running on Empty” with the help of producer Sam Guiana (SILVERSTEIN).
Her two singles, “Running on Empty” and “Drown” both reached over 50k views on the music videos and continues to climb steadily. You can also check them out below.
“Running on Empty” also currently has over 130,000 streams on Spotify.
