Born Dec. 9, 1979, to a Japanese mother and an American father, OLIVIA was discovered while attending the legendary Okinawa Actors' School. In 2004, Avex released her sophomore full album The Lost Lolli, in Japan, as recognition for her growing popularity.

After enjoying a musical hiatus, during which OLIVIA gained respect as a fashion model and designer, she was chosen by popular Nana manga author Ai Yazawa to provide the singing voice of character Reira Serizawa on the television program. She has since performed three songs for the opening and final credits. The first single, "A Little Pain," ranked at #8 on the Oricon charts and sold 20,162 copies in the first week. Offscreen, Nana has sold an astounding 22 million copies of its first 12 volumes.
