It sometimes takes a lifetime to find their authentic selves, but for Hawaii Born and Los Angeles-based artist JoLivi, it took a little loss, some good ‘ol fashioned heartbreak, and a newfound sense of confidence to find who she truly is as an artist.
Formerly known as LeiHoku and today known as Jolivi…Jo has gone through a lot of difficult things from her grandfather passing to her going through a really bad breakup. Jo got her heart broken over and over, but she kept going back to the relationship and it made her feel things she never felt. It made her think about things on a deeper level. It changed her. It helped her grow as a person and as a writer, so she got my pen and paper out and started writing in a way she never written before.
Through the process joLivi found her true voice. The result has become a Electro-Pop sound of songs filled with passion and a personal side hailing from the darker recesses of her mind and heart. Songs like GAMES, DON’T MATTER and CHAINS.
Grammy nominated Brandon Friesen, who has racked up six Juno Awards, produced her EP. He helped her find the inner soul of her voice in a way that she was able to share her feelings – whether it’s being sexy or reserved or just allowing herself to feel sadness. Jo’s vocal emotion is present throughout her music.
