There is more than one artist under this name:
1. OLIVIA - OLIVIA inspi’ REIRA (TRAPNEST), Japanese singer
2. Olivia Longott, American r&b singer

1.OLIVIA (OLIVIA inspi’ REIRA (TRAPNEST)) is stage name for japanese singer Olivia Lufkin, born on December 9, 1979 in Naha, Okinawa, Japan. She is the daughter of an American father and a Japanese mother. Olivia attended the Okinawa Actors School, alma mater of famous artists like 安室奈美恵 (Namie Amuro). She was discovered there and signed to Avex Trax in 1996 as part of the idol girl group D&d, which had an Eurobeat sound. When the group disbanded, OLIVIA became a solo artist. In contrast to her work with D&d, her first single, I.L.Y. ~欲望~ (I.L.Y. ~Yokubou~), released in 1999, had a driving rock sound. Her first two singles were written by others, but she wrote her third single, Dear Angel, and all her singles since then.
In 1999 and 2000, she released six singles altogether, all with a pop-rock or alternative sound, and at the end of the year, released her first album synchronicity, containing all her singles to date. In 2001 and 2002, she released two more singles.
Although critically acclaimed, her solo singles were not chart toppers; her biggest hits, her second and third singles, both peaked at #29 on the Oricon, and her successive releases charted lower and lower (her final single peaked at #99).
