Once you hear what Olivia Lane has to offer, you’re hooked. Lane grew up in Houston listening to and mimicking her mother’s singing. When she reached her teenage years, she picked up a guitar and her whole world got a whole lot bigger. From there she would start playing music and writing her own songs. After graduating from USC where she studied music, songwriting and acting, she jumped ship over to Nashville to pursue her dreams of becoming a country music star. A dream and goal she gets closer to every day.
With a Sara Evans-esque tone, the girl can hold her own in the singing department. Mix that in with the high energy she possesses, there is no slowing Olivia Lane down. “Good thing I am blessed with all this energy that keeps me going,” says Lane. “I know how much drive, talent and determination it takes to make it in this business. I have watched, I have listened, I have dreamed and now I can say that I am ready to introduce my music to the masses.”
Ever since Olivia made the move to Nashville, she has made it her objective to be seen and spread the word about her music as she pretty much became a permanent fixture in a lot of Music City’s most popular venues for catching up and comers. Whether it was playing her own gigs or participating in songwriting showcases, there was a good chance that you were going to catch her performing. It took hard work and dedication, but one year after her move, Lane has landed a deal with a publishing company and was able to record an EP titled Love Thing with award-winning producer Ilya Toshinskiy (Dolly Parton, Sheryl Crow, One Direction, Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan). The 3-song EP was released in August 2014.
