Liv Phoenix

From the depths of experience, Liv Phoenix is inspired to share her voice of healing and celebration. She embodies the storytelling of folk with the rich roots of jazz and blues-drawing influence from Joni Mitchell, Fiona Apple, Tori Amos, and old jazz standards. Her soulful and wide vocal capabilities are a tool to paint her intimate and unapologetic experience of life, and her use of unique guitar tunings and free open chords are her canvas.
Liv’s music is for anyone who resonates with the Phoenix-a story of fiercely rising from darkness into empowerment again and again. She took on this name to embody this and to channel it into the music. Her struggles with anorexia and depression over the years kept her hidden - but now she is here, breathing life into this music to inspire and heal. Her darkness has been the greatest teacher, and she is honored to have her voice as a carrier of story to get to a greater place of personal and collective understanding.
Olivia Roumel, known as “Liv Phoenix” grew up in the rich artistic community of Ann Arbor, Michigan. She started singing as a child and soon began writing to go alongside that-writing some of her first songbooks at the age of eight. Creativity has always been a vital part of how she makes sense of things. Whether directing an all-female A Cappella group, fronting jazz bands, or collaboration with Boulder local hip hop artist, YashAkasha, Liv is hard to pin into a single style or genre.
At eighteen, she went to study at Berklee College of Music, a contemporary music conservatory in Boston, in study of vocal jazz performance, theory, and songwriting. This is where the story really begins – as this time lead into a major and sobering life shift, eventually taking her to the Front Range in Boulder, Colorado. It isn’t until she moved here that she began recording her first album, “Blip”, to tell the story of the past years in this transformation. Submergence in nature has been her form of worship, and a great well of inspiration to continue creating music. As well as music, Liv is also a passionate astrologer, visual artist, and writer, and spends her days hiking, cycling around, working and hanging out at Trident café on West Pearl.
