Olivia Isabel Rodrigo grew up attentive to the music of her parents, there are home recordings of her dedicating a song to her friends and her family. Since she was a child, she took music classes where she learned to play the piano and the guitar and, of course, also acting lessons.

Of course, it should be noted that those home recordings that many artists share and already look yellowish and old are different from Olivia’s, because she interprets her, who filled the lists of the best of music in 2021 with her name, just finished turning 19 last February.

It seems that 2003, the year Olivia was born in Murrieta, California, was yesterday for many, but no. Although Olivia shares the feeling with them when she remembers that her life changed from one moment to another, in the blink of an eye.

And it is that if something defines Olivia’s music that goes through the pop and pop rock genres, it is the sentimentality with which only a teenager could compose, those feelings on the surface that are felt like in no stage of life, that pain when the first love leaves and you have to deal with it, and Olivia enjoys it to the fullest, there is no better place than the one that saves her, as she points out:

“I believed that being a songwriter is the best job and the best skill. Nothing connects with people better or truly portrays human emotion like music”, she points out and there is no refuting it when thousands go to her concerts to sing her songs.
