Olivia O’Brien Is A Young Talent Whose Future Looks Extremely Bright Young Singer Draws Impressive Crowd For Early Afternoon Outside Lands Performance
SAN FRANCISCO, CA-
“… I had heard a lot about Olivia O’Brien prior to my arriving at Outside Land from my indie pop loving friends. Though I could have easily just caught this Thousand Oaks, CA native and LA based artist perform in Los Angeles, it just so happened that I had meandered by her stage stage when her performance began.
For a 2:55pm start time, I was very impressed with this young singer’s turnout. There were hundreds of fans that were there in the audience to see her perform, and while that may not seem like a big deal at a music festival that hosts tens of thousands of attendees, the fact that literally all of them knew every single lyric she was singing was amazing. I was clearly the fish out of water here.
Her debut EP which was released in 2017, It’s Not That Deep, and is emotional dance-centric music and is like candy for the younger listener. It makes sense since Olivia is a teen (18) herself. With youthful themes like getting intoxicated on a crush and trying to fit in with a crowd running through her music, it’s definitely music that resonates with the youth and they were all eating it up.
For a young girl, Olivia has an ear for dope production. Her tracks are certifiable bangers, and she has unique vocal quality to boot. It will be interesting to hear how her music evolves as she matures into a young lady, and I hope she keeps affiliating with the right people to keep her on the upward track that she’s currently on …”
