It’s looking like January is shaping up to be a good month for singer-songwriter Olivia Nelson. The London native made a splash in 2017, truly kickstarting her career and living a long awaited dream.
Nelson got to be a part of Jarreau Vandal’s ”Someone That You Love,” which grew attention from Apple Music and BBC 1Xtra. The song is also up to over 5 million streams. On her own, the soulful popstar released her own singles, “Cleopatra” and “Up All Night,” as well.
With influences from artists like Lauryn Hill, Stevie Wonder, Frank Ocean, Prince, John Mayer & Whitney Houston, Nelson is breaking through 2018 with her latest hit, “Hideaway.” This time Vandal is featured on Nelson’s track, and a whirlwind of sound sets it off. While Nelson keeps it simple, her voice is still compelling, and you can sense the talent. It is a great setup for the upcoming releases scheduled for later in the month.
January will also see Olivia Nelson’s debut at Sofar Sounds London, something fans across the pond will definitely want to check out. For now, take a listen to Nelson on Spotify.
