Her single “Catch The Vibe” was a lush record with organic energy. The beat has a enigmatic and perplexed atmosphere, making the song a little more mystic than it was.

Hi LUVA, care to introduce yourself to our readers?
Peace World, my name is LUVA. I’m an independent artist coming out of Shaolin aka Staten Island, New York. My style is a fusion of hip hop, jazz and neo-soul. My sound and my stories are my truth.
When did you get into pursuing music? How long have you’ve been pursuing it for?
I’ve always had a passion for music for as long as I can remember. I first began writing poetry around the age of 10 and shortly after that began developing my poems into song lyrics. I got into the booth at 15 and haven’t left it since.
If you could use 3 adjectives to describe your style and music what would you use and why!?
Sensual, for the energy that exudes from the tracks. Versatile, from the flows to the concepts to the range of emotions, there’s not just one sound to be heard from LUVA. Witty, for the way I craft and deliver my lyrics.
Is Luva your birth given name? Or stage name? If it’s your stage name, How did you come up with it?
LUVA is my stage name. I was always called Stef Luva growing up and since I do everything with love, the name just stuck.
How was the creation process for “Catch A Vibe”?
I created “Catch A Vibe” at a time in my life where I was I was growing distant from people and things that didn’t elevate me and if they didn’t understand me then, this vibes for them.
What is your goal for the new year?
I plan on getting these vibes out to the world, performing and showcasing my creations and continuously elevating.
