Olivia Castriota is a NYC-based Vocalist and Recording Artist. Since the age of 11 with bedazzled purple hairbrush in hand, Olivia hasn’t stopped singing, constantly inspired by Joss Stone, Etta James, D'Angelo and Ed Sheehan.
Long gone are the days of bedroom performances in front of Seventeen Magazine posters—Olivia has since graced stages across the country, from intimate performances to sold-out shows, including venues like the world-famous Apollo Theater and the electrifying MetLife Stadium. She brings a unique blend of pop, R&B and soul, turning heads with her powerhouse vocals.
After her debut album, All At Once (2015), peaked at #2 on the iTunes US New Album Release charts, Live For Live Music labeled her sound as “irresistibly slinky.” Meanwhile Grammy Winner Vlado Kolenic crowned her "one of the most talented vocalists in years!"
With the upcoming releases of several new tracks, including the highly anticipated single, Weekend Lover, on August 3, 2018, and its accompanying video on August 17, 2018, Castriota is ready to continue taking the music scene by storm.
