Olya Viglione

Originally from Moscow, Olya found herself falling in love with New York at the age of 21 on a summer student program. She came to study English to be able to speak the language of her rock-idols, to write the lyrics in a language that seemed most appealing to her. 

Growing up in 1990s Russia right after the collapse of The Soviet Union, Olya had a thirst for music and literature as her ways to escape to a different world. She would wake up in the early morning before school and set the VCR to record the videos of American and European bands on foreign channels that would broadcast only in the off-peak hours - early mornings or late evenings. She started playing piano at the age of 5, and received a classical piano training at Prokofiev Moscow music school # 1, where she was one of the top students. She dropped out of it, being sick of her teacher’s way of schooling through punishments and humiliation, she made her parents sell her piano and hadn’t touched an instrument in 2 years. Olya realized afterwards that music was a part of who she was, and that it had nothing to do with curriculum. She never stopped playing and writing music since. 

A whole new colorful world of New York opened up to her with its melting pot of cultures, languages, styles and different kinds of music. She found herself in the most creative place she ever been to, free of society’s dictates where you could shape your own reality, and use your vision to the full potential, constantly getting inspirations from every corner of the city, from every character you meet, from every melody you hear. 
Olya began discovering her ‘true’ self through music, expressing her deepest feelings and sacramental ideas in writing her songs. Binding her reality with the worlds of her first heroes - Kafka, Sartre, Dostoevsky, Kundera, Marquez, Murakami and finding her biggest musical inspiration in evocative stylings of Queen, Bowie, T. Rex and Radiohead, she’s bringing her passions for music and writing together. 

In her time in New York, she’s studied with renown vocal instructors, Craig Derry and Lucas Hall, collaborated and toured with singer-songwriter, Jesse Malin, at South by Southwest, recorded with dark-cabarat musician, Voltaire, and is working on her first full-length album with her husband and drummer, Brian Viglione (Violent Femmes, The Dresden Dolls). Olya will be a featured performer at the Steampunk's Worlds Fair 2015 and booking shows through the end of the year.
