⭐️ STARS CROSSED ⭐️ 11/22

A post shared by Olivia Sanabia (@oliviasanabia) on

What made you want to jump into music now?
Olivia: The timing worked out, because I had been playing piano and guitar for forever and songwriting more than ever, so everything was kind of in a place where I was happy with it.

How would you describe your sound?
Olivia: I would say that it’s got definitely some pop elements, but also some soul and pop, with a little bit of folk in it, but those are probably the main three.

What message do you hope to express through your music?
Olivia: My message that I always try to share with people is to work hard and be kind. I’m a big dreamer, so I always encourage people to dream big as well. Mainly, I think that if I can share one thing with the world, it would be a message of spreading kindness, so I hope that my music can do that for people.

When it comes to your debut single “Star Crossed,” were you inspired by that same message?
Olivia: I wanted the song to tell a story, so when I was writing this song, it was kind of based on personal experience and also based on my love for Romeo and Juliet, but I think it’s an alternate take on the story.

How did Ruby [Rose Turner], Dakota [Lotus], and the rest of your “Coop & Cami” castmates react to the song when you played it for them?
Olivia: I think they knew I was working on music. Everyone was super sweet about that. Very sweet and kind!

What’s next for you?
Olivia: You can definitely expect more music soon. I’m working on it, and I am so excited for people to hear what’s next.
