Seventeen-year-old singer-songwriter Olivia Ooms has the mature vocals and songwriting prowess of an old soul.
With her new single "California Country," co-written and produced by ACM Award winner Jamie O'Neal, the Huntington Beach, Calif. native combines her coastal roots and southern sound.
"California Country" follows Ooms' debut single "Thoughts of You," which landed the emerging entertainer a spot in CMT's Artist Discovery Program, a performance on CMA's Spotlight Stage and placement as the first female country artist featured on Radio Disney's RDYou Station.
Ooms' passion for country music is evident in every performance from opening for Lady A and Old Dominion with her band at Coastal Country Jam, to entertaining crowds of fans during CMA Fest, and opening for country music icon Tanya Tucker, whose path Ooms can certainly relate to as a teenage songstress rising to fame.
While not on the road, Ooms is actively involved with her performing arts magnet program at her high school and throughout the community through her involvement with the Community Outreach Alliance, SOS 4 Life and beach cleanups.
