Biography

Olivia Wik is an 18 year old singer/songwriter who is quickly making a name for herself within the industry offering a unique and modern country sound. 

Olivia is a 3-time ACMA nominee (Female Artist & Fan's Choice) and 2014 Edmonton Music Awards nominee (Artist to Watch). She has been entertaining audiences at main events such as the 2012 & 2013 CCMAs 'Diamonds in the Rough Stage', 2013 Royalty Records CCMA Industry party, Calgary Stampede, Big Valley Jamboree, Westerner Days, Summer SendOff Festival, River City Round Up, FarmFair and New Year's Eve at City Hall in Edmonton. Olivia has also performed the national anthem for the Edmonton Eskimos, Edmonton Indy, and Edmonton Prospects. 

Olivia has co-written with many North American songwriters and has published songs with Royalty Music Publishing Inc. In November, 2013, Olivia was invited to participate in the prestigious Songworks Camp hosted by the Songwriters Association of Canada (SAC) where she collaborated with top producers Rob Wells, Ari Rhodes and Dan Davidson & Canadian artists Bryan Finlay, Jimmy Whiffen, Cecil Frena, Sophie Serafino and Rachel Woznow. 

In 2012, Olivia's talents caught the ear of TV producer/host Michael-Ann Rowe of the Detroit PBS show Off the Beaten Palate. Rowe heard Olivia's song 'Alberta Pride' and requested to use it in her tv series. She then asked Olivia to write a specific song for the series and the result was 'Taste the Sun'. This song was used in the Ontario and Alberta segments of the Canadian  food & travel show which aired June, 2013. 

As winner of the 2012 Global Country Talent Search (Youth), Olivia traveled to Nashville and Pigeon Forge for the 2013 NACMAI (North American Country Music Associations International) competition. In the 17-20 division, Olivia won awards for International Female Vocalist, International Female Entertainer, Songwriter, and  Co-Songwriter (with Larry Wayne Clark). 

Olivia has been involved with several charities. This year, Olivia, Sophie Serafino and Dan Hill penned the title track for the Every Woman Organization compilation CD available March 12 on itunes. In October 2013, Olivia participated in the Dreamcatcher Foundation concert as one of the opening acts for the band PRISM. She was the sole entertainer for the official launch of Strathcona County's 2011 Relay for Life Cancer fundraiser, performing at various locations in Albertas Capital Region for the charity and has entertained at various fundraisers for the 2012 Tulong Sa Kapwa benefit concert for Philippine flooding victims, Invisible Children Benefit concert, Run Wild Marathon and Playing for Change with Bev Facey High School.
