ABUDDING pop­star from Scaris­brick wowed crowds as she per­formed at BBC In­tro­duc­ing Festi- val.

Olivia Kar­al­ius, known on stage as Livvy K, was the open­ing act at the Fes­ti­val of Mak­ing at Black­burn Town Hall, on Sun­day, May 13.

The 16-year-old per­formed tracks from her de­but EP, The Jour­ney Be­gins, and she was sup­ported by her two dancers So­phie Rough­ley and Elise Helm.

Since the launch of her EP in Fe­bu­rary her tracks have been played on BBC Ra­dio Mersey­side and she ap­peared live on BBC Ra­dio Lan­cashire with Sean McGinty.

The for­mer Burscough Pri­ory stu­dent also re­cently per­formed a live acous­tic ver­sion of her song Sun­rise at Mighty Ra­dio South­port with Christo­pher John Stret­ford.

It seems as though the op­por­tu­ni­ties keep rolling in for Olivia, as she was asked to per­form at the Miss South­port 2018 con­test on Fri­day. May 18.

She has also con­firmed that she will be the main act at the Liver­pool Fringe Fes­ti­val on June 30.

Com­ment­ing on her per­for­mances and up­com­ing ap­pear­ances, Livvy K said: “I have re­ceived an amaz­ing re­sponse from peo­ple when I have per­formed my songs live on stage and to see such a pos­i­tive re­ac­tion from the au­di­ence is so en­cour­ag­ing.

“I am look­ing for­ward to the next live events and ap­pre­ci­ate all the sup­port from ev­ery­one.”

Over the past three months, Olivia has been work­ing with her song writer and cre­ative di­rec­tor, John Gil­lette, and his team from KMGLife in Co­larado on the next stage of her al­bum.

She has plans to re­turn to the USA later in the year to con­tinue this work­ing on this col­lab­o­ra­tion.

Her de­but EP The Jour­ney Be­gins is avail­able for stream­ing and down­load on a va­ri­ety of mu­sic plat­forms, in­clud­ing iTunes and Spo­tify.
