JoLivi has been on the music scene as a pop artist recording two EPs and three singles. Two of her songs charted well and during that time she visited and performed at over 50 radio stations across the country, set the stage at numerous live and industry events, and in the process garnered a significant amount of press, and a collection of over a million views on YouTube.

JoLivi, however, is new to the arena of country music, her twang comes with a bluesy soul and her buttery trills unwittingly rope you in.

Over the last year I found myself adding a favorite country cover to the song list of our performances. During rehearsals my producer Mark and I always talked about how we needed to someday write country music together.”

Their conversation soon became hooks and verses and they would discover that country for them wasn’t just another genre but a creative longing fulfilled.

“I am gearing up to release my third single, “Vinyl” which I wrote with the amazing Mark McKee. The song is super fun and everyone can’t help but dance when I play it live. Also looking forward to writing as much as possible this year for my debut album!”

Musical Influences : – James Taylor, Bonnie Raitt, Eric Church, Dustin Lynch, Maren Morris, Dixie Chicks, Rascal Flatts, Beyonce, Sia, Sara Barellies

Personal Influences: – My main personal influence has always been my grandfather on my moms side.  He was a beautiful hawaiian man, who sang hawaiian music and played multiple instruments.   My mother and father of course.. They always believed that singing would be my future and never ever told me it was a waste of time.  They have been very very supportive on this journey.  My manager/mentor/and friend Jenn Littleton .. To have someone have complete faith in you is an understatement.  She’s brought out the best of my talents and has guided me to being and living a better life for myself and my career.

Music Sounds Like: The contemporary appeal of Maren Morris, vocal strength and uniqueness of Melissa Etheridge and the grit of Bonnie Raitt.

Why You Should Be Listening: JoLivi’s Hawaiian upbringing and diverse influences set her apart from anyone else in country music right now. Her vocal chops are top notch with a touch a grit and charisma. Being from the Hawaii islands, she also embodies an infectious laid-back and happy-go-lucky persona.
