Olivia Harris Olivia Harris

Olivia Harris is a prolific songwriter who uses her Caribbean, funk and R&B roots to create soul fusion, a unique, funky, uplifting sound that will keep your toes tapping. She grew up in Brooklyn singing every Sunday in her church choir, while dancing to Michael Jackson, as well as the reggae and bachata outside her window. She began playing piano at four years old, then moved onto arranging and composing in her high school a cappella group, which influenced her to pursue a degree in music at Columbia University. There, jazz empowered her to use the variety of music she had grown up with to create her own take on R&B. As Olivia K, she has played such venues as The Bitter End and the Highline Ballroom. Most recently, she played Times Square’s EcoFest with her band Olivia K and the Parkers. She has performed with The Songwriter’s Orchestra at 54 Below and The Laurie Beechman Theatre.
