Artist Biography

Born and raised in California, Olivia Fleming came out of the womb influenced by music. Her mom is a professional singer and vocal coach. “She was recording in studios all throughout her pregnancy with me. I feel as if I was being fed her musical ability and experiences from even before my birth, and my musical journey started very early.” She began lessons at 4, playing drums, violin, cello, guitar, and piano. She also began singing at 5. Olivia began writing music at 13 and recorded her first original song a year later, under the name “Lovey”. 

Her first big show was performing at the Jon Lovitz Comedy Club in Universal Studios Hollywood. Performing with Aremenian blues artist, SUR as guest vocalist, Olivia played an original along with an “outrageous version” of Tracy Chapman's “Give Me One Reason”. Of the performance with a full blues band behind her, she says it's still one of the coolest nights of her life.  At age 15, Olivia knew that she wanted to pursue music as a career.  “I told my parents that I was going to become a serious artist. I’ve never been afraid of failing, and I think that is what drives me in all my creative passages; the courage to fly,” she explains. 

Olivia began writing her own songs four years ago. The music is usually inspired by strongly emotional event & the songs just flow. She states that the songs are representative of whatever is going on in her life at the time and come from a subconscious level. After sustaining a traumatic brain injury from a concussion she received during a dance performance, it influenced her current album. Olivia has been recovering for a year and has battled through extreme pain, anxiety, and many other neurological problems. “I am still sorting through and living with every day. As you can imagine, this is a very powerful moment in time for me both energetically, and physically, and songs of suffering and pain I was going through just started flowing through me.” 

Influenced by her mother and grandmother, Olivia explains that her songwriting takes place on spiritual level. “I often have a spiritual experience of meditation when I am writing, as if the words are coming through me instead of from me, and I seldom ever know what a song is truly about until I discover it a few months or even years later. It is an incredible self-exploration as well as artistic expression.” She states that everything she does is to be the light for others who have none as it is her sole purpose in life. “All my songs, no matter how dark, have an uplifting, hopeful message encoded in them. Art, after all, is not only about beauty of the human expression, but about impacting others and contributing a positive message to the world around us. As an artist, this will always be my first and foremost mission.”

Though still young, Oilvia has accomplished a lot. Her biggest accomplishments thus far are her fashion blog ( http://theindiegirl.com) and philanthropic online store/organization (http://shopfrenchfunk.com). The blog began as a hobby and quickly evolved into a full time endeavor.  She works with companies worldwide to bring quality styles & looks to her readers. French Funk where she sells hand-picked vintage collections with 100% of proceeds going to charity.  “So far, I have helped sponsor a young girl’s brain surgery, fund a Parkinson’s clinic, and am half way there to sending two kids recently diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes to a juvenile diabetes camp this summer where they will learn how to take care of themselves on their new journey.” Olivia describes the organization as her most meaningful purpose and she hopes for the e-store to grow and reach more people. 

Olivia has an important message to her fans, “as always, I would never be anywhere if there weren’t people I love and don’t even know clicking on my site, buying my clothes, and listening to my music. I am eternally grateful to everyone out there who has ever supported me, and I just want to say to each and every one of you, from the bottom of my heart forever, thank you.”
