Discovery: Olivia Ellen Lloyd

Olivia Ellen Lloyd is an indie folk artist from West Virginia, USA who tells a deeply personal tale in her new song Emily.

By Graeme Smith

The song is a dedication to her childhood friend, who sadly passed nine years ago. Today would have been her birthday. It’s a lovely tribute, steeped in imagery and storytelling, sung with authentic emotion and accompanied by acoustic guitar and flashes of electric organ.

It’s a difficult and powerful thing to turn grief into something positive like music and Olivia has done a wonderful job of it with¬†Emily. You can check it out below.
