This young talent proves not all country music starts in Nashville. Born and raised in the Hawaii Islands, JoLivi’s love for country music started at a young age. While some may not correlate country music and the aloha state, the rural landscapes and laid-back lifestyle emulate everything we love about the genre. JoLivi caught the music bug as a child and quickly began singing wherever she had a chance. Now with her latest single, “Vinyl” she continues to share her unique sound.
After graduating with a Theatre degree from Colorado State, JoLivi decided it was time to make the move to LA to pursue her music career full time. While in LA, she had the opportunity to open for artists including Andy Grammar, Gavin DeGraw, Lindsey Stirling and more alongside the release of four singles garnering more than 670K views on YouTube and 20K streams on Spotify. Her vocal prowess turned critics heads with Perez Hilton stating she possessed ‘star potential’ and alt radio stations around the US spinning her singles.
JoLivi also appeared on Nashville’s premiere entertainment show, NBC’s ‘Today in Nashville’ to perform “Vinyl” before its release. Catch the performance HERE
Currently working closely with industry vet Johnny Garcia (Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood), the release of “Vinyl” follows JoLivi’s debut and sophomore singles “Take a Shot” and “Crooked Crown.” With ‘the contemporary appeal of Maren Morris, vocal strength and uniqueness of Melissa Etheridge and the grit of Bonnie Rait’ (Country Music Tattle Tale), JoLivi is well worth the time to get to know.
