Triveno is a singer/songwriter from Paarl. He writes and sings about life, love and everything that happens in between. Triveno’s musical journey started as a teenager when he’s dad brought home a guitar because his old man wanted to play. In the end Triveno got hold of the guitar and has since become inseparable.
His first professional recording was in 2012 at Franschhoek Recording Studios with Uys Visser. In 2014 he released his first 10track album – Brighter Day. From 2015 till 2018 he was the frontman for the band Southern Lights. The Band recorded numerous singles and also had a TV appearance in 2016 on the youth TV show Hectic Nine-Nine. They also played at the KKNK Fees from 2017-2019. Their music can still be heard over SA radio stations including, RSG, GrootFM, CCFM and Radio Tygerberg to name a few.
In 2017 his wife Alecia, who was also the Bass Player for Southern Lights, lost her battle against cancer. It was a difficult time for Triveno and their daughter Gabriella who was only 6 years old at that time. They were married for 11years. This was a time of deep reflection and soul searching for him.
In 2018 he got married again with Christelle and she has inspired him to get back into performing, writing and recording music again.
2019 was a new beginning for Triveno when he released two singles as a solo artist. Both songs, “Not Perfect” and “Foreign Land” did well on the South African Radio Scene. Not Perfect got Number 1 on Cape Town Radio Station CCFM’s Top 10 chart and Number 8 on Algoa Fm’s Top 30 Chart in the Eastern Cape. Foreign Land got playlisted on National Radio Station RSG and also got up to Number 6 on Algoa Fm’s Top 30 Chart. Ignite “feat” Ruth J, his first single for 2020 also went on to Number 1 on the CCFM Top 10 chart.
The new single “Lost in Berlin” is a vibrant and heartfelt pop tune inspired while Triveno and his daughter were staying in Berlin, Germany in October 2017. Gabriella asked her dad after a long day of exploring the city : “Dad what would happen if we would get lost?” He went on to tell her “As long as we are together we will be fine. It doesn’t matter where we are”. There and then the song was birthed.
