Amazon Music has announced that London singer-songwriter Olivia Dean has been selected for Breakthrough, the streaming platform’s developing artist programme.
In the past year, she’s orchestrated a socially distanced tour in a bright yellow truck, released her EP What Am I Gonna Do on Sundays? and sold out two upcoming headline shows at London’s Jazz Cafe set to take place in June 2021.
As a Breakthrough artist, Dean will receive substantial support from Amazon Music including bespoke video and audio content, global marketing support, increased visibility across Amazon Music’s playlists and programming, and a high-profile Amazon Original track available only on Amazon Music.
Dean joins 2020 Breakthrough artist picks Arlo Parks and Jay1. Parks had a curated live special on Amazon Music (Tonight with Arlo Parks), while Jay1 was supported with the +44 Presents: Jay1 documentary.
Olivia Dean said: “I am so excited to be announced as Amazon Music’s Breakthrough artist. I am so grateful for their support and excited to work with their amazing team. We have so many fun things planned and I know they’ll be the best partner for realising them.”
Dean recently recorded two exclusive performances of What Am I Gonna Do On Sundays? and Echo for Amazon.co.uk’s virtual International Women’s Day event, which are available to watch exclusively for Amazon Music Unlimited customers in the Amazon Music app.
