EPK OLIVIA FRANCES
"Olivia's music is the real deal. In the crowded landscape of 21st century pop music, it takes a lot to stand out among the crowd. Her songs and performances manage to sound familiar and inviting without ever sounding quite like anyone else. Honest, fresh, and immediately appealing -- Olivia writes the kind of songs you wish you'd already been listening to for years."
- Mikey Shake, WEMF Radio, Boston, MA
When Olivia Frances walks on stage, her infectious positive energy and powerful stage presence captures a room. After winning four distinguished awards in 2018 alone, this pop/folk artist released her full-length, fan-funded, third album Orchid in June described by the Worcester Telegram & Gazette as “irrepressibly sweet — and eminently likable.” Blending nature-inspired lyrics with ethereal vocals and organic guitar picking, Frances’s unique “sunshine-story-pop” sound is a flowery mix of Colbie Caillat’s catchy acoustic melodies, Joni Mitchell’s unique vocal arrangements, and Florence and the Machine’s energetic, emotive performance.
With three albums out, this Cincinnati-native and environmentalist has been on the Nashville Songwriter Association International (NSAI) “Ones to Watch” list over a dozen times. Her songs on SoundCloud have gained over 100,000 streams, generating a loyal fanbase around the world. Her critically-acclaimed single, “Moon to My Sun” was the VOX Pop Winner in the Love Song Category at the 2018 Independent Music Awards, which “honor the year's most exceptional self-released & indie label projects from around the world.” She even won 1st place in the 2018 Singer-Songwriter Category in the New England Songwriting Competition…

“Olivia Frances’ voice soars. Dodging crosswinds and piercing through clouds as it ebbs and flows like a warm summer breeze.”
