Olivia Harding made her a cappella debut in early 2014 when she began singing as a substitute bass with Element, an all-female group that competed on Season 4 of NBC’s The Sing-Off. She is a classically trained contralto and has performed in musicals, rock operas, and festivals across the country. Olivia is a founding member of Music the Gathering, an energetic and interactive folk trio that performs new arrangements of traditional music while incorporating elements of fantasy and roleplaying games. In the spring of 2020, she became a founding member and producer for the Digital Ren Faire, an organization that has supported live performers by offering them a virtual platform during the pandemic. Olivia graduated from Brown University with a degree in Comparative Literature (French and Old English) and Renaissance Studies.
