An eclectic blend of indie-folk sounds, laden with infectious hooks, foot tapping rhythms, and memorable harmonies. This is the core of Grand Rapids, Michigan’s emerging artist Olivia Mainville and her debut EP “Full Steam Ahead.”
In July of 2014, the eighteen-year-old’s five song EP, was independently released, featuring performances by noted Michigan artists the Accidentals, Don Julin, Billy Strings, and the Appleseed Collective’s Vince Russo. “Full Steam Ahead’s” tracks vary in style from the driving, gypsy-swing of the title track, to the bluegrass influenced “Thorn of a Rose,” to the atmospheric “Sault Ste. Marie.” Mastered and mixed by Nashville based Quad Studio’s Rob Feaster (Johnny Cash, Bruce Springsteen, George Harrison), “Full Steam Ahead” showcases a dynamic soundscape to be enjoyed by listeners of all ages.
Olivia has spent the majority of the last summer supporting the Accidentals and played in over fifty shows during this span, including sets at Blissfest and Holler Fest and tours of Nashville and the East coast. Olivia and her new 5 piece band plan on hitting the road this summer for the ultimate tour. Stay tuned, dear friends.
