Olivia Lynn is a New Age/Electronica recording artist.
Olivia's lifelong dream is to share her music with the world as a recording artist. Creating music fulfills her heart and soul. Being able to share it with the world is just a bonus for her.
Raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Olivia's love of music started early in life. She loved playing the piano at home. By the time she was eight years old, she taught herself how to play by ear with her favorite TV theme show songs. Olivia also began composing music and writing song lyrics.
When she was in third grade, Olivia asked her parents if she could take piano lessons. She took lessons for a year before she grew bored of practicing out of the lesson books. Olivia then decided to quit the lessons and backed off from playing from awhile.
When Olivia got into Jr. High, she took up piano playing again. She wanted to learn how to play the songs she heard off of the radio, and started buying sheet music to teach herself. The first piece of sheet music she bought was Richard Marx's 'Right Here Waiting'. Olivia was drawn to songs that had beautiful piano parts in them. It was during this time that she got her first keyboard, a Casio, as a Christmas present. Olivia loved all the different sounds it could make, becoming fascinated them and started composing songs with them. She then wondered if there was any electronic music like hers already released in the world.
“I've been wanted this for so long, and now I’m finally making it happen! I couldn't be more happy knowing that my music truly touches people's hearts and souls!! I look forward to professionally recording my music and make my own albums!” - Olivia Lynn
Olivia Lynn realized right then....
Olivia Lynn's question was answered shortly thereafter when she spent one afternoon at a friend's house. Her friend had played a CD by Yanni, someone Olivia had never heard of before. As the music played, Olivia realized that the music playing sounded like the music she wished to compose and share with the world. Right then she realized what she wanted to do with her life: compose and perform electronic music. This type of music came to be known as New Age music in the 1990s.
When Olivia was in high school, she gave her first public performance playing her keyboard at her school's art festival. During her Senior year, Olivia wanted to participate in the school's Jazz Band. Normally, the school didn't have a piano player in the band, so the music teacher had to get special permission allowing her to participate. The music teacher got approval, making Olivia the first piano player at her school to participate in the school's Jazz Band.
Shortly after Olivia graduated from high school, her dreams of having a music career was put on hold when she started a family. Meanwhile, she continued to play the piano, write songs, and compose music. She knew that someday she would make her dreams come true.
Olivia, determined to get her music out into the world, took a leap of faith in 2008 and created a music profile on Myspace. She posted two songs there, 'Romantic Twilight' and 'Realize'. The response from listeners was amazing and encouraging! Then when Facebook became popular, she created a music profile there as well, though she ended up deleted her profile years later due to her lack of activity on the website.
Still, Olivia Lynn never gave up...
As time went on, Olivia continued to educate herself on becoming an independent musician, building her online presence, and reaching out to fans around the world!
In April of 2011, Olivia launched her own website! Though she was still not fully ready to move forward with a music career, that didn't keep her from continuing to write songs and composing music. Olivia knew that someday she would make her dreams a reality!
