Strong, empowered and confident; there are few words more fitting to describe the sound of Canadian pop phenom Olivia Penalva.
At just 20 years old, the west coast songstress has continued to prove she’s a relative tour-de-force. With over 7 million streams under her belt, and almost 6 Million YouTube views and more than 44k subscribers already taking notice of both her inspirational message and honest lyricism, it’s not hard to see why.
Earlier this year, in addition to having her cover of 'Have a Little Faith in Me' featured on American Idol and 'You Are The Reason' cover on America’s Got Talent, Olivia unveiled a pair of brand-new offerings with her singles ‘Vanilla’ and ‘No Rush’ to her already extensive resume.
Keeping up the momentum, Olivia released her current single 'Love Me' this past September and it’s racing up the charts on Canadian pop radio, about to crack top 20 and the single can be found featured on several editorial playlists on your favourite music service.
At the young age of 13, Olivia found success, achieving her first Top 20 single at Canadian radio with Christmas for Two in 2013 — with the track going on to win an Independent Music Awards (IMA) nod for Top Holiday Song. By 2016, Olivia was named Starlight Music Chronicles TEEN Artist of the Year. Success continued with her release of Skyline (The Madlucky Remix), which earned her two iHeartRadio Future Star Awards, in addition to charting in the top 30 on three different formats.
Olivia has been actively working on her new record, with critically acclaimed songwriters across North America and is set to release her highly anticipated third album in 2021.
