Born in Belgium on August 12 1997, OT (Olivia Trappeniers) grew up in a very musical family where both parents played in a band. She started playing the guitar by watching and learning the songs of Hannah Montana, Miley Cyrus, The Pussycat Dolls, Fergie, Colbie Caillat, Taylor Swift on Youtube. She also took some pianolessons and at the age of 12 she sang in front of alive audience in church for the first time.
As a teenager she watched TV shows like The Voice, X-factor, Idols and was dreaming about being on a show like that, so she decided to participate in The Voice herself at the age of 16. She went straight to the liveshows by performing Blank Space by Taylor Swift where she stood out with her pure voice.
Even though she didn’t make it to the finals, she started working on her own career as an artist. Inspired by the music of Rihanna, Halsey, The 1975 and Astrid S, she’s now working on her own songs. Spending more time in the studio then in school, collaborating with DJ’s and in the meantime recording some acoustic covers, she’s releasing the first one There for you by Martin Garrix and Troye Sivan. It’s driven by only piano and her airy unique voice and it’s that combination that somehow could remind you of Birdy.
After winning the radio contest MNM Rising Star, DJ and hitmaker Regi sended her a track were she co-wrote the lyrics and melodie for . “You Have A Heart” reached #3 in the Belgian Charts and golden status.
“Where is my love” is the first release of her own written music
