An evening of boundary-testing songwriting and arresting performances by an artist at the peak of her powers.

Olivia Chaney grew up listening to everything from Prince to Henry Purcell. This eclectic mix of influences sparked a passion for songwriting. After showcasing at SXSW and a stint as lead singer for electronica outfit Zero 7, Olivia signed with Nonesuch. This lead to collaborations with Kronos Quartet. She was Grammy nominated for Offa Rex, a collection of Fairport Convention-era classics made with The Decemberists.

Olivia’s first solo album (The Longest River), produced by Leo Abrahams, received rave reviews. Following this she recorded Shelter in NYC with genius producer-pianist Thomas Bartlett. These records established Olivia’s unmistakable brand of luscious and sophisticated music. Her songs explore inherited trauma, the clash of tradition and modernity, and the darkness and light of love.

Circus of Desire, released in March 2024, is Olivia’s first full-length album since she fled the capital, married her dream boy, gave birth to two children, and entered into the deeper mystery of things. The album features an all-star line-up of friends old and new, including Sam Amidon, Nico Muhly and remixes by Dave Okumu, Oliver Coates and Vessel.

Circus of Desire is Olivia set free. Catch these songs played live for the first time by Olivia and her band.

In her quiet way, she’s radical. The New York Times

Forget the labels, she is a major artist, and completely her own person. The Telegraph ★★★★★
