Olivia Chaney

London-based singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Olivia Chaney follows up her 2018 Grammy-nomination, appearance on Later…with Jools Holland, and sold-out Kings Place performance with a concert specially curated for Venus Unwrapped. Olivia pays tribute to her favourite female singer/songwriters, such as Joni Mitchell, Sandy Denny, Kate Bush and Kate McGarrigle.


Classically-trained singer / pianist Olivia Chaney graduated from England’s Royal Academy of Music, before teaching herself guitar and Indian harmonium, delving back to the inspiration behind the British folk revivalists. She has since built a loyal and growing following as a songwriter and interpreter, both in the UK and internationally, through her acclaimed and eclectic live performances and much lauded recorded works.

In 2013, Olivia self-released an eponymous EP, that was followed by her critically-acclaimed 2015 Nonesuch debut, The Longest River. The latter, which The Guardian hailed as ‘an enchanting and stately creation’, was noted in a number of ‘Best Of 2015’ lists, (Uncut, Mojo, PopMatters, Chicago Reader and more); whilst The Independent featured it in their Top 5 Albums of the Year, calling it ‘A landmark release’.

Olivia then featured on two collaborative albums in 2017:  the first – Folk Songs – with fellow Nonesuch artists; Natalie Merchant, Rhiannon Giddens, Sam Amidon and Kronos Quartet; and the second – The Queen of Hearts – by Offa Rex, an album by a new band formed between Olivia and The Decemberists, which was nominated for a Grammy at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards in the ‘‘Best Folk Album’ category.

In 2018, Nonesuch released Olivia’s second solo album – Shelter – which was produced by Thomas Bartlett (David Byrne, Sufjan Stevens, St.Vincent, The National, Florence Welch).  The album was widely applauded as a sophomore triumph by critics: ‘even the simplest arrangements seem to ooze with an inherently fluid musicality. From the deathless serenity of the opening title track to the neo-classical closer “House On The Hill”, here is transcendent refuge from the storm.’ – Uncut; ‘A finely wrought piece of work, with Chaney’s swooping delivery turning songs into dramas. An elegant, luminous album.’ – Observer; ‘A beautifully haunting meditation on the human condition.’ – Sun.
