burning eyes and enchanting voice?
Olli Violet – the Shadowess of Pressure is our beautiful and strong female vocalist! With her fantastic
talent and spellbinding voice, she brings soul and a dimension that are unmatched in the metal scene!
We will let Olli tell you about herself:
Who is Olli Violet?
I’ve always seen myself as a part of a band. Especially a metal or hard rock band.
I started singing when I first heard the incredible Evanescence. It became my inspiration.
For the first time I thought about starting a band is when I heard Korn. I decided to keep that powerful
vocal message in my future gigs.
I started my vocal/music path in 2008. Had a great experience as a student. Attended numerous talent
contests and concerts hoping to find my own style.
By now I have formed as a singer with recognizable vocal delivery and stage image.
How would you describe your own voice/music style?
My voice is my way to express myself. If I’m an artist it would be my best painting. I’m still working on
it, I try to add more “color” in it, I try to learn and use different techniques.
But I’m still on the way to my ideal vocal that I have defined for myself.
What inspired your musical style?
I’m a huge fan of Korn and Slipknot. Their musical style is closest to my inner perception of music. As
for the vocals I’m inspired by many singers in different styles of music: from Bill Withers to James
How does it feel when you perform for a live audience?
I feel alive. It’s an amazing feeling to receive back the energy that you gave, even 10 times bigger..
Who are Pressure I hear you ask? Well, if you had to tag them with a genre the one that fits best is a ‘melodic rock’ but they are so much more than that. Hailing from Stockholm, Sweden and with vocalist Olof Jönsson , you can always guarantee soaring, athletic and committed vocals. Together with a twin guitar sound coming from songwriter and lead guitarist Simon “Siirpo” Forsell and Emil Salling. The addition of Olli Violet will be a definite asset to the band. As her addition widens the audience the band can win over.
Their work often focuses and embraces thepressures felt from everyday existence. Their lyrics ably demonstrating that there are two sides to everystory – the good and the bad. Every song has a double meaning and they truly see music as a tool to handle the different pressures thrown at us from the modern world.The band began their journey together in 2018, and since then they’ve worked tirelessly developing their sound and live performance, their aim? To make memories with their fans and to an epic musical soundtrack.
A quote that can summarize their lyrics is:
“How can you tell a story about life if you haven’t dared to live life to its fullest!
Pressure is all about every story, every moment, every Pressure”
