Band on Band: Olivia Frances
Cincinnati native and environmentalist, Olivia Frances is a singer-songwriter and musician with a sunny disposition. Frances’s infectious positive energy draws from the same musical styles as Ingrid Michaelson, Lenka, and Sara Bareilles. Her single, “Moon to My Sun,” won Best Pop Song of the Year in the 2017 Ohio Music Awards, and is the FAN Nominee in the Love Song Category at The 16th Annual Independent Music Awards. Wisdom shines through her pop-folk creations, and she remains dedicated to her craft by honing her skills with disciplined daily practice and regular live shows.
In 2017 alone, Olivia played 50+ shows. She’s coordinated multiple tours through Florida, Kentucky, Indiana, and New York. She also performs live at festivals and events on the East Coast and in the Midwest from the Dover Arts Festival in New Hampshire to Bogarts in Cincinnati.
Olivia spent a gap year in Nashville before attending college. Her time in the Music City enabled her to focus on her distinctive blend of catchy-boppy melodies and the storytelling aspect of country music. She has graced the stages of some of Nashville’s most popular songwriter venues including the iconic Bluebird Café and the notable Commodore Grille. Since then, Olivia has moved to New England to attend college and expand her fanbase.
Lately, Olivia has been working on new material, co-writing with other songwriters from around the world, and honing her sound. Olivia currently resides in Worcester, MA.
Catch her live at Tavern at the End of the World on March 20th! Details here.
