Olivia Ooms has the mature vocals and songwriting prowess of an old soul. With the upcoming release of her newest single, California Country, Ooms channels the roots of her western beach town.
“Growing up in a western beach town, some say I can’t be a true country singer because I'm not from the South. This song attempts to dispel that thought and embrace the carefree California lifestyle that bridges the gap between the West Coast and the South.”
During CMA Fest 2019, we had the opportunity to chat with Olivia Ooms about the inspiration behind her upcoming release, performing at CMA Fest for the first time, and more in our exclusive interview below.
The Huntington Beach, Calif. native caught the attention of Radio Disney and CMT with her new single “Thoughts of You.” Both of those national media platforms debuted her music through the RDYou station and CMT Artist Discovery program. The multi-talented entertainer’s passion for country music is evident in every performance from opening for Lady Antebellum and Old Dominion with her band Olivia Ooms and Highway 39 at Coastal Country Jam, to entertaining crowds of fans during CMA Fest, and opening for country music icon Tanya Tucker, whose path Ooms can certainly relate to as a teenage songstress rising to fame. While not on the road, Ooms is actively involved with her performing arts magnet program at her high school and throughout the community through her involvement with the Community Outreach Alliance, Alzheimer’s center and work with children.
We've teamed up with Olivia Ooms to present fans with an exclusive first listen of her upcoming release, California Country, which will be available on all streaming platforms July 26th.
