Olivia Mae is a 17-year-old singer/songwriter from Melbourne whose Aussie twang and frank lyrics charmingly contrast with her lighthearted arrangements. Olivia has been a performer since her dad could get a guitar in her hands and regularly busks around Melbourne. She has had the privilege of performing in various settings such as an event for The Push in 2016, various carols services over the past 8 years, opening for Didirri in 2018 and numerous other gigs and events. Olivia's original music is largely inspired by the complexities and unpredictable nature of teenage life, "grotty boys" who are "no Bakers Eddy" (thanks Mum), and an endless endeavor to find a socially acceptable level of recalcitrance. Her perceptive lyrics open an avenue for all listeners to relate and interpret as they like.
