Two self-released albums headline her resume. Sivan’s debut album “Broken Lines” (2016) received immediate international recognition and media coverage. In his extensive review, Travis Rogers, Jr. – The Jazz Owl wrote: “Broken Lines” is a wonder. Sivan Arbel has captured love and longing, respect and reflection, and then set loose an emotional and lyrical watercolor that remains fresh and lively long after the album has ended. To transmit such joy—and for it to remain so long after—must be the greatest gift one can give. So it is with Sivan, she imparts joy and it remains.”
