Pop tour de force Olivia Rox introduces “Princess,” a track from her debut album, Poprox, via Songbird Records.
Olivia first burst onto the scene on Season 15 of American Idol, where she was a Top 10 Finalist. Since then, she’s performed throughout the world, including North America, Europe, Mexico, and Asia, followed by releasing a series of Top 40 singles, including “It Girl,” “Galileo,” “Shooting Star,” “Go Vote,” “Outcast,” and “I Will Be.”
With nearly 500,000 streams on Spotify alone, “It Girl” was the recipient of Best Pop Song. Three of her music videos – “It Girl,” “Galileo,” and “Shooting Star” — garnered nominations for Best Independent Music Video and Best Producer/Production.
Vaguely reminiscent of Katy Perry, Olivia’s stunning 4-octave vocal range and crème de la crème timbres elevate her music to Empyrean heights, as dazzling layers of leitmotifs swirl and glow beneath her gilded vocals.
From a musical family – her mother, Tamara, a former singer/producer, her dad celebrated saxophonist Warren Hill, Olivia’s tantalizing sound reflects elements of pop, rock, R&B, and jazz.
“Princess” opens on sparkling, delicate colors as Olivia’s incomparable voice glides overhead. As the rhythm takes hold and the music builds, Olivia’s vocals soar aloft, energizing the lyrics with brilliant hues and mounting timbres.
“The full moon is just above the rooftops / You can almost catch that shooting star / And everything will glisten as you let it / Cuz you will finally know just who you are / If only this could be a fairytale then I would be your shining star / If only this could be a fairytale then it would all not seem so far away.”
Once the harmonics descend, Olivia imbues the lyrics with affluent textures, followed by a brief pause before the chorus, where her exquisite voice parades its vast coloration and scope. When she hits the towering crescendo, the only term coming to mind is Diva.
Olivia Rox has it going on. With “Princess,” she amalgamates arresting pop flavors with the fulgent sonic compass of her bewitching voice.
