Hello all friends and family of Niviane. I would like to let you all know how important and appreciated your support has been over the years since this band started in 2015. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time in Niviane and have the upmost respect and love for the guys in the band. I’m extremely proud of what the band has accomplished and I believe there are more accomplishments to come. At this point in my life, I feel myself being pulled in new directions creatively and personally, and as such, I have chosen to step down as bassist of Niviane to see where these new paths will lead me. Although you may no longer see me on stage thundering the bass in Niviane, I certainly will still be supporting the band and their future endeavors. Once again, thank you to the guys in the band, and especially all the fans who have supported us and will continue to support Niviane. As I like to say… “HEAVY METAL! Ooh Yeah! Well Alright!!
