Olivia Panacci isreleasing her debut single, ‘Ready To Fall‘, on June 16, 2017. The Phoenix based artist was discovered at the young age of 16 by artist developer Jereme Eklund, and Los Angeles based songwriter/composer Mandi Kitchen. The pair quickly fell in love with her deep, raspy voice, and R&B, old-school flair.
“When I was about 9 or 10, I realized I had a voice. From then on I sang every chance I could get to anyone that wanted to listen.”
‘Ready To Fall’, the title track to what is shaping up to be a 3 song EP (late fall release).The single was written by Mandi Kitchen, and produced by Los Angeles based Trevor Okoren. The song (pop/tropical house) is a song about “facing fears, and rising above the pains we all encounter, as we go through life.” A second track on the EP also features more outstanding production and writing by the same team, and the third is written and produced by Nashville great Nathan Meckel.
Since inking a developmental deal with Jereme Eklund on October 10, 2016, life quickly changed. Olivia received some brief national and international attention when two iPhone created audio recordings hit the international songwriters market via UK based Songlink.com, prompting the response of over 500 writers from around the world to hit her website over the period of four days.
Olivia was born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada to her father (100% Italian decent), and her mother (Russian, Polish, and English decent) on August 16, 1999. She has one older sister. She lived in the Toronto area until the age of 5, when in 2005 her father moved their family from Toronto to Phoenix, Arizona, where her family currently resides.
At the age of 15 she began to post short videos of herself singing on a Tumblr site she had started. In less than a year she had managed to attract a following of well of 30,000 followers. Through the persuasion of her mother, in May of 2016 she started a YouTube channel and posted a few full-length cover songs. It was there that she was discovered.
“I believed with all of my heart that I could do something great with the voice I was blessed with. I am proud of myself and feel self-empowerment because of all that I have done so far, and all that is waiting for me to accomplish!”
“Ready To Fall”, is the work of a gifted artist, for one so young to bring out the mature inner self that looks towards a rewarding life and a rewarding love, it is just truly miraculous. life is not always as we would like, often falling prey to the fairy-tale romance and the swept of the feet moment, “Ready To Fall”, is a down to earth and realistic love song, with smokey lyrics and soft ambient over tones, it will definitely be some of the first lyrical steps in a long career in music.
Be ready to fall for Olivia Panacci !
