About Patrick Olivier
Patrick Olivier is a musician based in Richmond, Virginia. Born and raised in Galveston, Texas, he has been increasingly incorporating his heritage and upbringing into his musicality.
With roots also in Louisiana, Patrick embraces his creole culture, especially in food and in music. Aside from the vast and flavorful cuisine, Zydeco is a major musical staple in Louisiana and Texas culture and it has inspired Patrick’s soulful and rhythmic style throughout his musical career. The percussive nature of Zydeco makes you want to immediately get up and dance, something that Patrick takes pride in at his shows – the freedom people feel to dance and let loose while he’s performing is invaluable to him.
As a young man, Patrick accelerated into adulthood by joining the United States Marine Corps where he served for 5 years as an Avionics Technician. Around this time, he discovered and fell in love with the classic sounds of legends like George Jones, Merle Haggard, Eddie Arnold, among many others.
