ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
When Olivia Mancini was a little girl in Washington, DC, she dreamed of being a
rock and roll star. If not a rock and roll star, at least she would like to play in a rock
and roll band. “Drum set” and “electric guitar” topped her Christmas list for years, but
never appeared under the tree. With the necessary implements out of reach, Olivia
concentrated on classical music, playing French horn in orchestras and bands. Then,
one fortuitous day, Olivia crashed her mother’s car and was grounded indefinitely. But
before the shackles were securely in place, she purchased her first guitar and spent
the long hours of imprisonment rocking out. It was, oddly enough, a very liberating
experience.

Olivia took her rock and roll dreams and ran with them, playing bass in the Washington
Social Club (Badman Records) for several years, before starting her own group, Olivia
& the Mates. Hit fast-forward and Olivia Mancini has been touring the U.S. and Europe
for more than 15 years, performing with top acts like Pat Benatar, The Hold Steady, STARS, Matthew Sweet, Bob Mould, and Melissa Ferrick. Her music has appeared in Gossip Girl, Entourage, ER, and Live with Regis and Kathy Lee. Later, Olivia teamed with Virginia Coalition’s Jarrett Nicolay to make albums under the moniker Astra Via (Aerobic International).

Over the years, the press has warmed to her engaging, personable, often
humorous, upbeat folk-rock/jangle pop hybrid. “Olivia Mancini’s sense for melody will
make any songwriter jealous,” quips WTOP radio, while NBC New York says, “Patsy
Cline meets Tom Petty sounds flip, but it’s accurate when it comes to this DC-based
singer songwriter.”

Versatility is Olivia’s true charm - she can stretch the boundaries of musical genres
without sounding as if she’s out of place. To make the most of her musical palette, Olivia
creates music in several groups, including the more electro-pop Astra Via (Aerobic
International), the rootsy Donny Hue and the Colors (Kora Records), and the retro-pop
Ed and Donna. Olivia also writes music for movies and TV, including the National Geographic Channel.
