Biography

Olivia Anna Livki was born in 1984 in Poland - behind the Iron Curtain, where the streets, buildings and birds were grey and brown and the coloured stuff had be bought with dollars in shops called “Pewex. Her Polish mum and German dad had met in Jordan (where their jobs had brought them) so English became her second mother tongue and the Arab Emirates soon her second home and happiest childhood memories. At age 7, Olivia moved to South Germany and had to discover that without learning the language quickly she would have to take more sponges thrown in her face by schoolmates. So she did and after surviving the torment of being a cultural and intellectual outsider for 13 years, she graduated from school with German Sheffell Literature Award. At age 16, she began playing bass and singing (after her mum accepted that she would never play the piano a g a i n), though her first priority still was filmmaking, which she had begun at age 10. She recorded a great number of minimalist Voice’n’Bass-demos, soon increasingly experimenting with layers of voices and drums. Her first studio-demo was recorded in 2007/8, her second, self-produced The Smiling Face of Progress in 2009. In 2009, after Film School and studies in her new home Berlin, she eventually decided to make music her first career in 2009. Two internet-videos (live-video “Girl Vs. City” and stop motion animation-video to “Hologram”) were directed and edited by herself in the spring of the same year, in July she began playing her first concerts.
