      Olivia Chaney


      Classically-trained singer/pianist Olivia Chaney graduated from England’s Royal Academy of Music, before teaching herself guitar and Indian harmonium, delving back to the inspiration behind the British folk revivalists. She has since built a loyal and growing following as a songwriter and interpreter, both in the UK and internationally, through her acclaimed and eclectic live performances and much lauded recorded works. 

      Last year Olivia featured on two collaborative albums including The Queen of Hearts by Offa Rex, an album by a new band formed between Olivia and The Decemberists, which was nominated for a Grammy at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards in the “Best Folk Album” category.

      On June 15, 2018, Nonesuch released Olivia’s second solo album, Shelter, which was produced by Thomas Bartlett (David Byrne, Sufjan Stevens, St.Vincent, The National, Florence Welch). Already applauded as a sophomore triumph, the media says: “A finely wrought piece of work, with Chaney’s swooping delivery turning songs into dramas. An elegant, luminous album.” – Observer and “A beautifully haunting meditation on the human condition.” – Sun.

      Over the past few years, Olivia has collaborated and shared the stage with a diverse range of artists including Robert Plant, Eliza and Martin Carthy, The Decemberists, Shirley Collins, Alasdair Roberts, Kronos Quartet, Zero 7, and The Labèque.
