GETTING TO KNOW LIVIU BERGHIAN MUSIC
by Jacqueline Jax host of A.V.A Live Radio
Song name: Even Me
Music Genre: Christian/Gospel Blues
I am originally from Transylvania. I have actually written the story around the time me and my wife were hard pressed to either leave the US after I finished my studies or try to become legal residents. With a son in care the pressure was getting to us. The song came as a reminder that just as the sun rises and covers the earth with its warmth, God covers us all with his grace… “even me”.
Well, I guess I can’t exactly hide this….
I grew up in communist Romania–Transylvania more exactly–in a christian family. My dad was an active preacher in a day and age when the political machine decided that religious leaders had to either be silenced or eliminated. My father was silenced. I have experienced pain and suffering first-hand. But, in and through the life of my parents I have also witnessed the kind of grace and beauty that made God’s love and passion for me the only reality worth pursuing. I am simply a unashamed witness to God’s amazing grace!
I live in Bonham, Texas...
Not a lot of competition:)) Just kidding! Truth be told… it is either country or rock!! And it kinda influences me a lot. I recently wrote a few country songs I would be willing to record… soon! No kidding!!
It is very hard and expensive to pursue a music carrier…
It takes massive perseverance. Not for the faint-hearted, for sure! Luckily, social media and the online music platforms leveled up the playing field quite a little bit. It is actually possible to put yourself out there today in ways that was not possible just years ago. However, most of us do need all the help we can get!! I have actually recorded and mixed my album “You Never Change” in Romania, and then made it available through CdBaby and ReverbNation. I got the best of both worlds, I could say! It was much, much cheaper to outsource the recording and mixing, and then it cost nothing to post it on ReverbNation. OK! It does cost a little bit to let CdBaby upload them on all music sites, but it is worth it.
I would love to have 5 minutes alone with….
