Hey Olivia! So excited to be chatting with you again! Can you tell us what you’ve been up to since last we spoke?
Hey! So great to finally catch up! I’ve been focusing on school and other hobbies! Due to the pandemic I’ve had so much time to do other things I’ve always loved! I’ve been a yoga teacher and artist my whole life so to fill up my extra time I paint and craft everyday as well as starting up a yoga page! I post about stretches and offer private classes!
You just released your new single “Not Your World”! What’s been your reaction to the fan’s love for your new single?
I was not expecting this kind of reaction but everyone was like wow, you grew up. Which is true! I’m 19 and can finally dress, act and sing about whatever I want to. This was also the first song I had complete control over and did 100% by myself. People are finally starting to see me as an artist with no filter.
Can you tell us what this song means to you?
Music has always been my emotional outlet, so many people can relate to me on this. But song writing has been something that helps me grow as a person because when I sit down and think about those situations that weigh on my mind, I can see them more clearly. I get to not only process my emotions, but create something others can relate to. This song represents the end of a big chapter of my love life but the start of my musical journey.
Can you tell us what the song is about & how the concept came about?
I broke up with my boyfriend and turned to music to fix my problems. It helped me get over him and focus on what truly matters at the end of the day, me and my music. I wrote the lyrics before I did anything, I sat down and wrote out my emotions like a story then had my friend Geoff Doubleday lay down some guitar so I could create a melody and the song was created in less than an hour.
How excited were you to get this single out into the world?
I wrote this back in March and due to the pandemic, I didn’t get to do anything with it until August. Then it took even longer to get into a recording studio due to the pandemic. The whole song writing process had to be dragged out due to covid regulations which just built up so much anticipation inside of me, that I released the music video literally less than a week after it was shot.
Do you have any release plans for 2021? Maybe an album?
I already have two more songs written. I don’t have anything planned, I’m letting my music flow. I could push myself and make an album but right now I’m focusing on pushing Not Your World and growing my fan base first.
What do you hope your supporters will think of the new music?
I hope they just like me. As simple as that, I want to not only make relatable and dope music but I also want to let myself shine through and be a person that people can see as a friend.
Will there be a music video for your new single? If so, can you spill any details about the video?
The video is out!! Check it on vevo now!!
Do you have any other projects in the works you could tell us about?
