KHALYSIS is the new name for LIV’n’G, after the sisters, Olivia & Georgia took advice from the music industry (including Dave Stewart - Eurythmics) about their styling, branding and sound.  Pronounced ‘Cal’–‘ee’–‘Sis’ it is derived from several different words in various languages for the likes of Queen, Warrior, Powerful and Loving.   Their original Electro R'n'B Pop infused with Tropical Rhythms is fresh and always has the crowd dancing, and when you add their infectious northern charm you have a very special act indeed.  They have already had a No.4 in the Official UK Charts, been on Vodafone's 'One's to Watch List', released their debut EP, performed over 400 gigs, played to crowds of over 40,000 and supported the likes of The Vengaboys, Rebecca Ferguson, Stooshe, and Alexander O'Neal.
