Olivia Lunny is poised as the next breakthrough Canadian artist/songwriter. At seventeen she released her self-titled EP in early 2018 that garnered her a Western Canadian Music Award nomination for “Pop Artist of the Year”. That success led to her appearance on season two of CTV’s The Launch, resulting in her winning episode 4 and recording the Top 40 hit “I Got You” – which hit #26 on the charts and has racked up over a million streams. In the wake of that milestone, Olivia went on to perform as opening support for the legendary Lionel Richie. She released her second single “Blacklight” in October 2019 and has more music slated for this year. In April 2020 Olivia lent her voice to a rendition of “Lean on Me” alongside top Canadian artists including Justin Bieber, Avril Lavigne, Michael Bublé, and Sarah McLachlan in support of COVID-19.
The 20 year old Canadian talent has caught momentum with her recent singles, which have garnered her praise from Billboard, Parade, Amazon Music (Artists to Watch 2020 cover) and more. We’re gearing up to release her debut EP and I wanted to pass along the socially distanced music video for her breakup anthem “Think of Me” which explores what people miss about their exes. I really think it’s something you and the Outloud Culture audience will enjoy – would love roundup / feature consideration (out July 8th).
“We’ve all been there, we’ve all reminisced about our exes. Sometimes it’s simply the warmth of another body or the fact that this person truly makes you feel like you. The video observes people’s reactions when asked about their ex…maybe you’re not the only one driving yourself crazy.. maybe they’re actually thinking of you too.” – Olivia Lunny
