Olivia Henry Single Review

Olivia Henry is sweet yet seductive singer and songwriter. The sexy and slow tempo of her music accompanied by her sensuous vocals allow for a sultry sound. Olivia Henry’s vocal reminds me of a soul singer from the 70’s, her sound is a mix of Amy Winehouse meets June Christy, creating the ultimate jazz sounding vocal.

The latest single Gotta Run is a work of art. The mix of instruments fit perfectly together and creates a smooth sound that you can’t help but drink up. The bewitching vocals paired with the soft drumbeat in the background create an almost R&B sounding track. The lyrics depict a woman waiting for her lover until she decides that she will no longer wait. This highlights something that all women go through in life and creates a sense of self-empowerment and freedom.

The single is very different sounding then her previous tracks. The latest record is a more seductive and soulful song that you would expect to hear in a smoky whiskey bar, where as the previous tracks is more jazz sounding with their vibrant piano sound. The previous tracks I believe were all test runs working towards this latest single where Olivia Henry really honed in on her sound.

Sadly, we don’t see much of miss Henry on Instagram, which in effect is a good thing, as when we do see her, her posts are always thought provoking as well as aesthetic, necessary within the music business. On Facebook though, miss Henry keeps all her fans fully involved with up to date and interesting posts advertising her future gigs and other opportunities. Olivia manages to keep her fans interested and excited for her future in the music world.

Ultimately, Olivia Henry has a promising future in the music world. Her unique sound paired with her sensuous image creates a thrilling listening experience. I personally am looking forward to her future releases and can’t wait to listen to them, as this single gave me an almost powerful feeling as I heard it. Keep a close eye on Olivia Henry!

Olivia will be playing Hotel Cafe's main stage for the first time on Saturday July 14th with some pretty amazing musicians.
