Olivia Frances at the Front Street Cafe in New Richmond in April

by David Miller,

When Olivia Frances ended her first tour, #SingleSteps Tour, it ended back in her home town of Cincinnati. I sat down with her a few days later to ask her about her songwriting and year-long excursion to Nashville which she describes as, “The town of dreams.”

We talked about how she goes about her writing and why so many describe the young musician as an old soul. She acquiesces to perhaps being a “Song Healer.”

I asked who her favorite female and male artists are now, and who’s hot now on the Nashville scene. Who should we be watching for?

She talks about the storytelling aspect of her songs and where she came upon the wisdom displayed by her lyrics.

The title track off her album, “Back to Happiness” won Best Pop Song of 2014 in the Ohio Music Awards. In addition, her original song, “Season’s Grow On” was placed in a documentary produced by an Emmy-award winning filmmaker, Melissa Godoy.
