Melbourne art-pop artist Olympia is about to become a household name across the US and UK with the announcement of three major international label and agency signings.
TIO can exclusively reveal Olympia, aka Olivia Bartley, has inked deals with UK label Opposite Number Records (Lowtide, H.Grimace), Coda Agency (Billie Eilish, Maggie Rogers) both for the UK, and Paradigm Talent Agency, (Coldplay, Flume) for the US and Canada.
Speaking to TIO, Olympia’s manager Jess Beston of Tiny Monster said:
“It’s been a very inspiring couple of months for us in Camp Olympia. The reaction to Liv at her solo shows in the UK last year was utterly thrilling to observe, from both fans and industry. They led to two very exciting signings, with Paul Buck at Coda, and with Stan Raymonde at Opposite Number Records.”
Fun fact: Raymonde is the on of UK industry giant Simon Raymonde, who was the bassist and keyboardist for Cocteau Twins, and heads up UK record label, Bella Union.
“Raymonde has literally grown up in the industry, he has spent his life at shows and devouring new music,” Beston added. “He has a great ear, he is in love with Liv’s new record, and he is exactly the kind of passionate tastemaker we want leading up her team over there.”
