Karl has been a freelance writer for over 10 years. He's passionate about music, art, and writing!


Rivita is a Brooklyn based electropop producer and singer songwriter. She creates music that showcases her powerful voice and lyric writing skills while exploring all of the complicated contours of human emotion. In an email, she told me about her creative process, how she started in music and her latest single Someone Else's Arms.

Karl Magi: How did you first start making music?

Rivita: I have always been inclined towards music, I first started out by singing in the school choir gradually picked up the electric guitar when I was a teenager and started tinkering with writing songs around the age of 12.

KM: Who are some of your musical influences?

R: Ah, it totally depends from phase to phase of my life. I believe in recently I have been hogging on John Legend, John Mayer and Kacey Musgraves but having said that, I listen to music from a lot of different countries and am influenced by the sounds of many origins.

KM: How do you approach the creation of new songs/music?

R: Usually I start by writing the lyrics and melody first, sometimes I just sit with my guitar or keyboard and hash out the song before recording a rough skeleton. Once I have a rough skeleton recorded, I proceed by figuring out the tempo and quantizing the song in my DAW (Logic X). I try to formulate a rough demo before sending it out to other musicians to add their parts and then finally once I have pretty much everything sorted I mix the song then it goes for mastering. Easy as that!

KM: Where would you like to take your music in the future?

R: Well, I am currently working on my 2nd EP which I am hoping would lead to my first studio album. The question right now is where would the music take me!?

KM: Tell me about the story behind your new single Someone Else's Arms? What inspired you to make it?

R: Someone Else’s Arms is a very personal song. I spent 2018 and 2019 thinking a lot about relationships and how extraordinary they are. I came to realize that most successful relationships are based on one factor and that is forgiving and moving forward with or without each other. With this theory in my mind and from my own experiences, I wrote this song. I feel that the song is pretty self-explanatory and my desire is that whoever hears it forms their own version and their own story of it.
