Olivia Lufkin is the obscure and talented bilingual artist, who has returned back to the music scene last year due to her involvement with NANA. She is currently with avex's sublabel, cutting edge. She comes from a family of musical talents, where both of her siblings are also working in the music industry.

Her history in the Japanese entertainment scene is quite long. Before her solo debut, Olivia was part of an eurobeat unit, D&D. They had moderate success and after their first album they disbanded. Olivia started releasing music solo and Aya & Chika only released two singles before they were cut from avex.

Her debut steered away from the bubblegum pop genres and she started to experiment with different genres and concepts. Thus her first solo album was a mixture of rock, pop, ethereal music and jazz. In the following years, Olivia would move towards the rock genre.

Following a difficult period in her life, Olivia's songs would become darker and more negative. Although several fans claim her second album was one of her best works, The Lost Loli would only reach #111 on Oricon. Feeling misunderstood and stressed, Olivia would go into an unofficial hiatus.

In summer of 2006, Olivia would return with a single with a tie-in with the anime, NANA. This signed a turning point for Olivia's music, where her music was more positive and pleasing to the ear. Olivia would go and perform in the States for the first time and in the following year she would perform in France.

Throughout her career, she has released ten singles, three albums and six mini albums. Hopefully we shall be getting some Olivia material soon, since she's definitely something one should look out for.

That's a shame. If I lived in France I would have gone to see Olivia for sure. About the new single I'm starting to worry about whether it'll be pushed back or not since CDJapan has removed the link to the single.

The new single could be called "Real Love", it's a new song that she had sung at her live in Paris ^^

And the single would be planned for this autumn now ...

In her myspace she posted how she's working on her album already and that a single is in the works. However they haven't chosen the song yet.

Livi is the affectionate nickname for Olivia. Many of her fans refer to her as Livi Smile

Ooh, an OLIVIA thread O:

I like her music, it's very good. It's a shame that I can't find synchronicity anywhere ]: I love that album.
