A key player in the new wave of contemporary folk singers, Olivia Klugman is an independent singer/songwriter with a rare vocal gift. Self-styled after genre icons like Joni Mitchell and Brandi Carlile, Olivia is known for their beautiful tone and vividly honest storytelling. Their sound is reminiscent of the Golden Age of American Folk Music, but with a uniquely modern lyrical sensibility
Following the success of their Tiktok video previews, Olivia released a series of new singles in the Spring and Summer of 2021. These songs chronicle Olivia's struggle to make sense of a senseless world and reflects their experience with queer identity, ambivalence in romantic relationships, and the struggle to establish adulthood in unprecedented times. Olivia released their single "Self Help" on February 4, 2022, a bittersweet tear-jerker about personal growth that received critical acclaim from multiple press outlets.
In March 2022, Olivia joined iconic power pop trio Jukebox the Ghost for two weeks of their national tour through some of the largest cities in the Great Lakes Region. Additionally, Olivia has shared their music in their hometown of Portland, Oregon's most notable venues including an opening slot for Noah Kahan at the Crystal Ballroom, support for Haley Johnsen at the Doug Fir Lounge, and headline shows at Alberta Street Pub and Laurelthirst Pub. Outside of Oregon, Olivia performed at New York City's historic Rockwood Music Hall and the Limelight Hotel in Sun Valley, Idaho. Since moving to Los Angeles in October, Olivia has played headline shows at the Silverlake Lounge and Junior High. Olivia most recently joined Semler on a short west coast tour in April 2022 and Mal Blum on a California tour in May 2022. Olivia plans to join Henry Jamison on a 7 city National Tour in June of 2022. Tickets can be purchased in the "shows" section of the website
