Olivia Wik is a 19 year old singer/songwriter who recently signed with Chapter 2 Productions Inc./Cymba Music Publishing. Olivia is a 3-time ACMA nominee (Female Artist & Fan's Choice) and 2014 Edmonton Music Awards nominee (Artist to Watch). She has been entertaining audiences at main events such as the CCMAs 'Diamonds in the Rough Stage' (3 consecutive years), 2013 Royalty Records CCMA Industry party, Calgary Stampede's 'Window on the West' & 'Fluor Rope Square', Big Valley Jamboree, Westerner Days, Summer SendOff Festival, River City Round Up, FarmFair and New Year's Eve at City Hall in Edmonton. Olivia has also performed the national anthem for the Edmonton Eskimos, Edmonton Indy, and Edmonton Prospects. 

Olivia has written and co-written over 100 songs with over 45 songwriters from North America, Barbados and England. Earlier this year, Olivia, Sophie Serafino and Dan Hill penned the title track for the 2014 Every Woman Organization compilation CD, called Be Yourself, produced by Rob Wells at OCL Studios. The country hit song, #Awesome, was co-written with songwriter Chard Morrison and released by Connor James in May, 2014. This past June, folk/pop singer Rebecca Lappa released her new album and the song Empire was co-written with Olivia. In 2013, Olivia was invited to participate in the prestigious Songworks Camp hosted by the Songwriters Association of Canada (SAC) and Vince Degiorgio, where Olivia collaborated with top producers Rob Wells, Ari Rhodes and Dan Davidson & Canadian artists Bryan Finlay, Jimmy Whiffen, Cecil Frena, Sophie Serafino and Rachel Woznow.  It was during this camp that Olivia, Rob Wells and Bryan Finlay wrote the pop hit song 'She's So Hepburn' which was released by YTV's 2014 The Next Star contestant Ryland Clark. 

In 2012, Olivia's talents caught the ear of TV producer/host Michael-Ann Rowe of the Emmy award winning Detroit PBS show "Off the Beaten Palate". Rowe heard Olivia's song 'Alberta Pride' and requested to use it in her TV series. She then asked Olivia to write a specific song for the series and the result was 'Taste the Sun'. This song was produced by Danny Colomby and used in the Ontario and Alberta segments of the Canadian food & travel show which aired June, 2013. 

As winner of the 2012 Global Country Talent Search (Youth), Olivia traveled to Nashville and Pigeon Forge for the 2013 NACMAI (North American Country Music Associations International) competition. In the 17-20 division, Olivia won awards for International Female Vocalist, International Female Entertainer, Songwriter, and Co-Songwriter (w/ Larry Wayne Clark).

Olivia provided entertainment for the 5th Annual Helping Families annual art exhibit in support of the Helping Families Handle Cancer Foundation. In October , 2013, she was one of the opening acts for the band PRISM in support of the Dreamcatcher Foundation. Olivia was the sole entertainer for the official launch of the Strathcona County's 2011 Relay for Life Cancer fundraiser, performing at various locations in Alberta's Capital Region and has entertained at several events such as the 2012 Tulong Sa Kapwa benefit for Philippine flood victims, Invisible Children Benefit concert, Run Wild Marathon, Adam Stock and Playing for Change.
