Every singer’s roots start with their parent’s vinyl collection. Olivia West’s daddy’s first job was to chase the cows away from the radio tower in his small Arkansas town, so his vinyl collection consisted entirely of the Billboard Top 40 records they paid him with. Every year, every decade until he got a real job and started getting paid in cash. Growing up on a rich diet of hit singles resulted in Olivia writing a lot of catchy and universal tunes. Livi first started writing songs as soon as she learned to talk. Now that she can sing like Adele and play guitar like Sheryl Crow, they’re hard not to sing and dance along with.
Since moving to Music City to hone her craft, Olivia has sung on nearly every stage in Nashville and everywhere from Bleaker St in Ny to California wine country and the KY Music Hall of Fame Inductions. She has released 3 albums and has over 30 songs cut on independent artists across America and even overseas.
Olivia has aptly named her live performances “The Acoustic Jukebox,” whipping out those Top 40s she cut her teeth on and playing whatever the audience wants, even if it’s for the first time. “I’ll play anything from Patsy Cline and Hank Sr to Rihanna and Beyonce. I’ll even hit Metallica on the way. I don’t know everything, but I know the chorus to almost everything.” She promises a good time.
