Biography

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's 'Window on the West' and 'Fluor Rope Square', BVJ, Westerner Days, CFR & 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 a catalogue of more than 100 original songs and has co-written with over 40 songwriters from North America and England. In 2012, Olivia's talents caught the ear of TV producer/host Michael-Ann Rowe of the Emmy award winning Detroit PBS show "Off the Beaten Palate". Rowe heard Olivia's song 'Alberta Pride' and requested to use it the Alberta segment. She also asked Olivia to write a specific song for the series and the result was 'Taste the Sun'. This song, produced by Danny Colomby, was used in both Ontario and Alberta segments of the Canadian food & travel show that aired June, 2013.

Earlier this year, Olivia, Sophie Serafino and Dan Hill penned the title track for the Every Woman Organization compilation CD called Be Yourself produced by Rob Wells. Olivia's first song cut (by Connor James) was #Awesome and co-written with songwriter Chard Morrison. Folk/pop singer Rebecca Lappa released the song Empire, co-written with Olivia, on her latest CD. In 2013, Olivia was invited to participate in the prestigious Songworks Camp hosted by the Songwriters Association of Canada (SAC) & Vince Degiorgio, where Olivia collaborated with top producers Rob Wells, Ari Rhodes and Dan Davidson & Canadian artists Bryan Finlay, Jimmy Whiffen, Cecil Frena, Sophie Serafino and Rachel Woznow.

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, & Co-Songwriter (w/ Larry Wayne Clark).
