Dedication, Passion and Belief
Singer/Songwriter and Recording Artist, Carla Olive presents her dynamic musical abilities in pop rock riffs and rhythms with interesting melody lines. Her music speaks with dynamics and feel, as her lyrics challenge the heart and mind… passionate about social issues, and honest in difficulties of the heart.

With over 20 years on the music scene, she has produced six albums; performed countless venues and festivals all over North America; freelanced for some great artists; and continues to write, collaborate and record.
Passionate about encouraging and fostering original talent, Carla hosts an all-ages Open Mic every Sunday at Ma Miller’s Pub, and Rock Jam every Thursday at The Loft.

CARLA OLIVE SOLO:
Carla Olive solo shows present her musical abilities by means of a loop station – creating vocal harmonies and instrumental tracks on the spot, while soloing on guitar and piano. If performing in a lounge/restaurant scenario, she covers modern to classic tunes from Katy Perry to Neil Young, peppered with her own original material. A wide variety of audiences are engaged by her presence on stage.
An all female band, covering women in rock music. From Pat Benatar and Patti Smith to Alanis Morissette and Sheryl Crow, St. Cecilia aims to honour and represent the amazing talent of the women of rock. As host of the ‘Women In Music’ Series, St. Cecilia showcases women of the Victoria music scene to share their talents… these nights have proven to be a fantastic time of connection and celebration!
