SIVA Addiction is a well known American hard rock band formed in 2007, from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The band is currently composed of:

Bridgette Oliver - lead vocals
Andy Hopkins - lead guitar, backing vocals
Jesse Slone - bass, backing vocals
Vince Lindstrom - rhythm guitar, backing vocals
Brandon Fields - drums

SIVA Addiction debut with their recorded single, “One Night Rodeo” off their sophomore album, produced by Cody Hanson of Hinder and Marshall Dutton of Faktion. Due to its tremendous success, SIVA Addiction continues promotion of "Dirty Secret”, produced by Platinum Producer, David Prater (Dream Theater, FireHouse, Patti LaBelle, Cyndi Lauper, Texas Hippie Coalition) performing shows nationwide.

With the video and full-length album, Bad Decisions, available now, the single has already gotten positive response from both critics and fans alike. SIVA's successful debut album Artifice, released February 2009, has received international radio airplay and landed the band several endorsement deals.

While touring regionally promoting Artifice, SIVA developed an affectionate and loyal fan base. Now after the release of Bad Decisions, they continue meeting new friends and are growing each day proving SIVA is 'destined for success’ as the Sanskrit name implies.

According to Rob O'hara of Review-O-Matic, SIVA is grouped with bands like Disturbed, Drowning Pool, Mudvayne and Evanescence. SIVA's heavy but not too heavy. Easily falling within the confines of radio-friendly song lengths, hovering around the four-minute mark, this five-piece packs plenty of interesting hooks showing comprehension of musical dynamics, building up before rocking out.

"Bridgette and The Queen"

Switching from a soft melody to hard-hitting power notes throughout most of the album, front woman Bridgette Oliver's vocals are strong. "Teasing listeners with her soft whispers and then attacking them with her full range. Through her clear vocals Oliver channels Evanescence's Amy Lee, though broken up with flashes of screams and growls. Oliver proves that women can rock just as hard, or even harder, than their male counterparts." says O'hara.

SIVA's lineup includes Bridgette Oliver as lead vocals, Andy Hopkins on lead guitar, Jesse Slone on bass, Vince Lindstrom on rhythm guitar and Brandon Fields on drums.

Collectively, SIVA is poised to blow people's heads off with aggressive beats, solid rhythmic bottom end, monster riffs and powerful vocals.
