Thanks Olivia Somerlyn. The soulful 16-year-old from San Francisco has provided us with our current music obsession, her new track, 'Not Your Girl.'
A high school Junior, Olivia is balancing music and homework -- "I'm inspired by the creative process of songwriting, and I'm passionate about telling stories through music, so I'll always make the time," she told JSYK. She writes her own music, plays the guitar and piano and cites some other cool artists as influences.
"I'm mostly inspired by personal experiences and small pieces of sounds I come across from many different artists rather than the work of a few specific artists," she says. "love the stories Taylor Swift tells through her songs, the musicianship of Nick Jonas, and the individuality of Lady Gaga-there are so many amazing young artists that I'm influenced by in all different ways."
Listen to two additional songs by Olivia here. We really like her acoustic version of 'Not Your Girl' as well. What do you think about Olivia's music? Leave a comment below.
