About Olivia Millerschin
Among her accolades, Millerschin has won a John Lennon Songwriting Award, an American Songwriter’s Award and, in addition to her new album, has a full album (“Yes. No. Maybe So.”) and an EP (“Over The Weather”) under her belt. She was also a finalist for the Detroit Music Awards, LA Music Critics Award and her songs have garnered radio play nationwide.
Having toured with Sawyer Fredericks, Teddy Geiger, Tyler Hilton, Orla Gartland, Ryan Cabrera, and Howie Day, Olivia has had pretty busy few years. She has also embarked on her own 40-city, cross-country college tour and has appeared on some of the nation’s biggest stages, including Radio City Music Hall and the Fox Theatre in Detroit.
Her music has been featured in motion pictures (“A Girl Like Her”), TV (“Finding Carter”), and one music compilation to a book. Olivia’s take on the 1930’s French song, “Parlez-Moi D’Amour,” was included in the musical companion to Mitch Albom’s best-selling new book, “The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto,” alongside musical legends Tony Bennett, Gene Simmons, Ingrid Michaelson and Matt Kearney.
The 21-year-old songstress “has a voice you melt into – it is beautiful, innocent, soulful and note perfect despite reaching some notes only dogs can hear!… As far as ‘uniqueness’ is concerned, this American has it in spades,” said Dom Flint, music reviewer, The Nottingham Post, during her recent UK tour with Irish singer-songwriter Orla Gartland.
