Described as a 'quintessentially English Joni Mitchell', Olivia is one of the greatest new voices in English folk. An accomplished lyricist and multi-instrumentalist, Olivia is signed to iconic US label Nonesuch Records, home to Laurie Anderson, Emmylou Harris and Joni Mitchell herself.
A self-taught multi-instrumentalist and accomplished lyricist and vocalist, Olivia Chaney graduated from the Royal Academy of Music and learnt the guitar from her father's renditions of Bob Dylan, Fairport Convention, and Bert Jansch, among others. Since then she has built a loyal and growing following, both in the UK and internationally, through her acclaimed live performances, as a solo artist and also in collaboration with a diverse range of artists, including Alasdair Roberts, Zero 7, and The Labèque Sisters. In February 2013, she self-released her eponymous debut EP, which has found her further fans with media and public alike. Co-produced with Leo Abrahams, it included the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards nominated-song "Swimming in the Longest River," as well as "The King's Horses," a track that "confirms Chaney's arrival as a major talent," according to BBC Music.
