About Abram Rivers

Abram Siegel-Rivers grew up in a multicultural home in the San Francisco Bay area. In high school, he discovered a passion for music as a creative outlet for his self-expression. He eventually started a band in college, The Voodoo Fix, and toured with them across the US and Europe for over 13 years. His varied experiences as a touring musician opened Abram up to a path of self-discovery.

After years of touring and recording, he journeyed through an existential inquiry, asking himself, “Who am I?,” “Why am I,” and “Why bother?”. It was at the end of 2019 when he discovered his calling, and the One Day vision and nonprofit was born. One Day is based in Nashville, TN and after launching in early 2020 it has opened up offices in Saskatchewan, Canada and Chennai, India.

Abram is committed to empowering individuals and connecting, inspiring, and amplifying  communities through music, art, culture, and events. His values of love, laughter and wonder have bolstered his commitment to peace and community for all and has resulted in him being the source of the #OneDayIsToday movement and the One Day global holiday. Abram is the founder and executive director of the One Day nonprofit where he has hosted over 100 virtual stages and has interviewed more than 200 guests including top authors (Jill Lublin , Elinor Stutz, Patrick Long , Colleen Biggs) , musicians (Paul Lloyd Warner), Olympic athletes (Sherry Winn) , poets (Stephen Wing) , actors (Kevin E.West, Ronald Fox) , inspirational entrepreneurs (Tom Kearin) , artists, storytellers, and many many more.

Abram is an accomplished performer, singer and songwriter and has recently completed an anthem for One Day due to be released in late 2021. Abram resides in Nashville, Tennessee where he enjoys creating new music, collaborative projects, gardening, serving the will of his three cats, and feeding his recent addiction to swing dancing.
