Olivia Broadfield would be the first to admit that a common question when people see her name is "Who is she?" But she also realizes that their common follow up is "Why is she outselling everyone but Owl City on the iTunes chart?" Olivia is a self-producing artist who is more than just a gifted songwriter. She's has a gift for music publishing as well.
Where most bands finish their album, pile into a van, and start touring it around the country, Olivia takes to the modern online social networks to reach music supervisors and publishing companies. She has secured some of the most coveted film, tv, and commercial placements around, reaching audiences of millions with her music in the process. Most recently, Olivia was featured on Grey's Anatomy. It's a music placement which has made household names of artists like Imogen Heap.
We sat down with Olivia to hear about her early songwriting, what inspires her, and see how she's using Reason to create synth hooks from her vocals.

After a lifetime of piano-playing, songwriting, and performing, it was artists like Feist and Frou Frou that inspired Olivia Broadfield to get her copy of Reason and produce her own music. When a song from her debut album shot to number 2 the iTunes chart after being featured on a hit MTV show, Olivia recognized and capitalized on the music publishing business. Her second album came out last month and has already secured the highly sought after placement on Grey's Anatomy.
