Canadian singer and songwriter, Olivia Penalva, is this month’s ‘One To Watch’ artist.



Strong, empowered and confident; there are few words more fitting to describe the sound of Canadian pop phenom Olivia Penalva.


At just 20 years old, the west coast songstress has continued to prove she’s a relative tour-de-force. With over 5.6 million Spotify streams under her belt, and more than 5.5 million views from her 43k YouTube subscribers, fans are already taking notice of both her inspirational message and honest lyricism.



Olivia’s career first kicked into high gear after scoring her first Top 20 single at Canadian radio with Christmas for Two in 2013 — with the track going on to win an Independent Music Awards (IMA) nod for Top Holiday Song. By 2016, Olivia was named Starlight Music Chronicles TEEN Artist of the Year, while her acoustic version of Florida Georgia Line’s H.O.L.Y. was chosen by Whiskey Riff as one of their top country cover songs.




Success continued with her release of Skyline (The Madlucky Remix), which earned her two iHeartRadio Future Star Awards, in addition to charting in the Top 30 on three different formats.  And the hits just keep on coming.




Earlier this year, in addition to hearing her cover of Have a Little Faith in Me featured on American Idol, Olivia unveiled a pair of brand-new offerings, adding Vanilla, as well as the current single No Rush — thanks to a deal with UK-based record company FrtyFve —to her already extensive resume.



Next up, Olivia is set to release her highly anticipated third album in Spring of 2021.


Olivia says, “I’m really excited. It’s definitely taken me some time, but I feel like I’ve grown so much as a musician and songwriter, this next record is going to be something really special. I can’t wait to see what comes next.”
