Five years ago we were approached by a young girl by the name of Olivia Foy. Olivia told us of her passion for music and her love of Kpop groups. Fast forward to 2018 and we were excited to hear from the Melbournian again, this time informing us that she has found a love for county music and has released her debut EP.
Based in Melbourne, Olivia is one of Australia's newest faces in Country Music. Having fallen in love with music from a young age, she knew that there was nothing else in the world that she wanted to pursue. Armed with her first guitar at 12 years old, she began her song writing and producing journey. Growing up, she looked up to artists such as Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood for inspiration. This ultimately led her to major in Music Technology at university, where she affectionately became known as "Asian Taylor Swift".
It was in her final year at university that Olivia started working on her debut EP, which is due late 2018. The first single from her debut EP "Kiss Me" is out now and it has also been added to the Asian Pop Radio 24/7 radio stream.

Listen to our interview with Olivia as she reflects on her music career so far and explains how she has come to love country music and the work she is doing to break into the challenging music market that it is. There may even be a little Kpop chatter in the mix, but you will just have to see for yourself.
