CHECK BACK FOR THE SINGLE
Olivia Trace is a singer/songwriter from Berks County, Pennsylvania, She currently lives with her mother, brother, and sister in Exeter, Pennsylvania. Olivia was a creative and energetic child, always searching for a new adventure. She has been singing from a very young age and begun learning how to play the guitar in the 7th grade. Olivia’s fascination with writing and vocabulary began in her early years of high school. With this on her mind, she began to write poetry, using it to express different emotions that she was going through. Eventually this idea turned from writing poetry, into writing full of songs for Olivia to play and sing. She was a star-athlete, a talented musician, and an honors’ student. Unfortunately, at age 15, a series of stressful events resulted in her taking a break from her current life to focus on her mental health. Through this stress and difficulty, Olivia could always find solace in music. Over the next five years, Olivia spent a lot of time by herself, with only her guitar and a journal she was given to write in. Not having much to do, she began writing songs while she was in recovery. She quickly realized that even at her lowest times, sharing her music with the people around her brought her a sense of belonging. Whenever she met someone whose story inspired her, she would write them a song. She realized that she was not only healing herself, but helping to heal others. Through this, she learned that she not only had talent, but passion as well. By 20 years of age, Olivia is over one year sober and in recovery of mental illness. She has made it her goal to continue using music to spread the message that recovery is possible for everyone. Olivia seeks to pursue her music career using her inspirations like Karen Dalton, Linda Ronstadt, and Joni Mitchell. With the strength and support of all of those around her and the loving support of her family, Olivia was able to start her career as a musician.
