Pennsylvania native singer-songwriter Olivia Farabaugh is excited to announce the release of her first single, “Righteous Dollar Bill,“ from her upcoming album, “Transparent,” available now on all streaming platforms.
The Story About Her New Single “Righteous Dollar Bill:”
The first single of Olivia Farabaugh’s debut album, Transparent, is a JAM! It’s a perfect blend of country, rock, blues and soul, just like the entire album she recorded. When Farabaugh first moved to Nashville, her music started getting swayed in different directions. She began questioning the direction her music was being pushed towards. During the beginning of the creative process for the Transparent album, she discovered this bible verse, Mathew 16:26: “And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? Is anything worth more than your soul?” Farabaugh realized God didn’t put music in her heart, help lead her husband and herself to move to Nashville from Pennsylvania just for her to be something or someone she’s not. She believes He created her to be unique and to follow her intuition to create the sound that is truly “Olivia.” That night she wrote this new song. The man she refers to in this song was the devil trying to weasel his way into her life and her music career. Instead of listening to people trying to change her look and sound, she allowed God into her heart to lead her in her daily life and stay true to herself. This song was written by Farabaugh and co-produced by Mitch Dane in Nashville, TN at Sputnik Sound.
“The music of the upcoming Transparent album is a compilation of songs influenced by my own life experiences and with stories shared with me by others on social media. My hope is that everyone enjoys and finds encouragement in my new music, plus it is also going to support a great cause that’s near and dear to me, Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome or CIRS,” says Farabaugh.
“My journey with CIRS has been one of my biggest personal challenges in many aspects between finding the correct diagnosis after years of searching, to tackling the financial and emotional challenges. Because the challenges are so great and vast in dealing with CIRS, caused many times from being exposed to black mold like in my case from a rental home, I want to help others going through this by spreading education and resources,” she adds.
