"Only as high as I reach can I grow, only as far as I seek can I go, only as deep as I look can I see, only as much as I dream can I be" is the quote I live by. In order to achieve your dreams, you have to follow your heart and never back down. When someone says you can't do it, all you have to do is turn around and say "Watch me".
Hey y'all, I'm Olivia Jo. I'm a singer and songwriter born in a small, southern Virginia town. I started singing when I could talk and began playing guitar when I was six. Honestly, I can't remember any part of my life that hasn't involved music. Music has always been my friend when no one else was; it gives me an avenue to truly and authentically express myself. Music brings a feeling of peace like no other. It truly heals the soul.
Living in an area of Virginia, rich in traditional music, I naturally fell right into the vocal Bluegrass scene. I recorded my first album at the age of 11. This gained me exposure in radio and television where I enjoyed moderate success with two Bluegrass albums. When I was 13 I was one of the featured female artists for a PBS television documentary called "Women in the Arts". Since that time I have recorded and performed with numerous groups and artists in several different genres of music.
In 2016, I released my first country album titled "Something Real Good" which showcases 10 of my original songs. I have recently joined forces with the prominent songwriter, Larry Cordle. I have been very fortunate to work with him over the past few years. He has become an incredible influence, mentor, and friend. I'm determined and dedicated to my music career. I'm living life to the fullest, having fun, and embracing every moment. I can't wait for so many things, but mostly I can't wait to meet all of you.
Come share this journey through music (and into the music business) with me.
