Olivia Castriota, the sassy NYC based artist just recently relesed her cover of Justin Biebers “Sorry” as a video and man will her vocals blow you away! So much vitality in one voice. Her impassioned approach to the pop song is so tranquilizing and reassuring to the soul. Hear for yourself!
Originally from York, PA, where the powerhouse of a singer developed and recognized her talents–it was there where the history of her success began. Around the tender age of 13, young Olivia discovered the high-spirited performer in herself. From choir, to musicals, to singing competitions, you name it!
It was’nt long ago when she moved to NYC and released her Debut Album “All At Once” which climbed all the way up to #2 on iTunes US New Album Release Charts. But, Castriota did not stop there! Her sexy, vivacious “I Wanna Know” video won Best R&B Video by The Academia. After watching it I thought, How could I not post it?!
Olivia has had the priviledge of singing at the world famous Apollo Theater a handful of times as well open for artists like Lil Mo’, The Shades, and RANN and even got her gracious hands on the opportunity to perform with Marky from the Ramones. I knew she was a lovable character when I asked her who her Idols were…
” Jessie J, Ed Sheeran, Lukas Graham, D’Angelo, and Joss Stone “
“…my music effects people in many ways but I guess that’s just it…it effects people. It makes them feel something. And that’s really the point of the whole thing….to feel. “
– Olivia Castriota
