Our next showcase artist is an excellent singer-songwriter from Leicestershire, Olivia Broadfield. Olivia has recently released her fourth album 'Jacklumber' through a Pledge campaign. The beautifully sublime 'Soften and Shake' (above) is taken from her 2014 'Paper Dolls' album. All of us here at LCM love Olivia's pure vocal & songwriting and she is on our LCM 2015 'Ones to watch' list.
Olivia signed publishing deals with pigFACTORY and Lionsgate in 2007 and released her debut album Eyes Wide Open in 2007. Her songs have frequently been played on TV and in films, with songs in One Tree Hill, The Hills, The Real World, The Dead Zone, Wildfire, A Shot at Love, Making His Band, Ghost Whisperer, and The Vampire Diaries.
Olivia gained the notice of blogger Perez Hilton and TV star Jessica Simpson. She signed a record deal with U.S.-based Vagrant Records in February 2009. Her debut album, Eyes Wide Open, was re-released in the U.S. on July 14, 2009. The song "Don't Cry" was released as a single.
Her second album, This Beautiful War, was released in 2011. Her third and fourth, Paper Dolls (2013) and Jumberlack (2015) were released through Pledge Music.
