Surrounded by a family of musicians, Olivia began her journey by singing when she was able to talk and begging to take piano lessons before her hands were big enough to reach the keys. After taking six years of lessons from her mom, Olivia's dad helped her discover the instrument that she would fall in love with: the guitar. At ten years old, she was strumming chords, picking melodies, leading worship at church, and performing Celtic music in her family's band. Songwriting was never in the forefront of her mind, but the emotions of junior high brought out a gift in Olivia that would soon propel her to places that she never thought she would go.

 

What started off as simple songs about life, relationships, and experiences, soon matured into tunes that began to touch people of all ages. As the young artist walked across the stage to receive her High School diploma, her path led her to Bradley University to pursue a major in Graphic Design. After a year of art classes, writing songs in her spare time, playing too loud in her dorm room and winning Bradley's "Idol Competition," Olivia realized that her heart was leading her towards a life of music and  entertainment. At the end of her freshman year, the nineteen year old’s experience at a Keith Urban concert was enough to launch her straight to a songwriter's festival in Nashville, TN. Olivia explained, "I was amazed that one person could touch a whole stadium of people with a three minute song. I knew in that moment that I needed to do the same thing." That summer, only a week in Music City allowed Olivia to find Treasure Isle Records where she would later spend a week in the studio recording her original CD, "Don't Come Knockin'".

 

The extreme focus, dedication, and sacrifice that the aspiring musician practiced when she laid down the tracks for her album has not wavered. Once the summer ended and the recording sessions were under raps, Olivia decided to hone in on her craft by earning a commercial music degree at Greenville College in Southern Illinois. During a semester of barely passing music theory, working hard at ear training, and exploring the world of Classical voice, she decided to take a leap of faith with the undying support of her parents. At twenty years old, Olivia dropped out of college in the winter of 2013. She felt strongly about immersing herself in the music business outside of school. She began building a career from the ground up, which would prove to be a long, rigorous journey for the entreprenuer as she went to every open mic she could, played at coffee shops, and quickly moved up to bar gigs, private parties, and weddings. "If I don't learn every single aspect of how to make a living by performing, managing myself, booking my own shows, and doing the grunt work, how will I know how to be a professional in this crazy industry?" the songwriter stated. As she perfected her skills, professionalism, and songwriting over the course of a couple years, Olivia met her current sound engineer and now husband, Jeremy Rollefson, who helped the process of developing her unique live sound. With the encouragement and love from her family, friends, and ever-supporting fans, the talented singer/songwriter received an opportunity in the spring of 2015 that would continue to spring her further in her career.

 

Boldly strumming her guitar, Olivia took the stage to directly open for the Coal Miner's Daughter, Loretta Lynn. The whole audience at the Arcada Theater immediately connected with the young performer's personality, performance and songs. "The most important thing I can do as a songwriter is to place my hand into the deepest crevices of my heart. This allows me to discover specific truths about myself in order to have a general understanding of the human heart as a whole. Each song I write needs to be honest, relatable, and strong." A true artist, songwriter, and lover of other people, Olivia makes one of her biggest goals is to write songs that simply take people with her on life's journey.
