She lived and grew up in neighboring Temecula. Rodrigo is Filipino American; her father is Filipino while her mother has German and Irish ancestry. She has stated that her paternal great-grandfather moved from the Philippines to the United States as a teenager and her family follows Filipino traditions and cuisine. Rodrigo started taking vocal lessons in kindergarten and learned to play piano soon after. She began taking acting and singing classes at age six and started acting in theatre productions in elementary school. Rodrigo was playing guitar by age 12. She grew up listening to her parents’ favorite alternative rock music, such as the bands No Doubt, Pearl Jam, the White Stripes, and Green Day. Rodrigo became interested in songwriting after listening to country music, especially American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift. She moved to Los Angeles after landing her role on Bizaardvark.

Rodrigo first appeared onscreen in an Old Navy commercial. Shortly after in 2015, at age twelve, she made her acting debut portraying the lead role of Grace Thomas in the direct-to-video film An American Girl: Grace Stirs Up Success. In 2016, Rodrigo received recognition for starring as Paige Olvera, a guitarist in the Disney Channel series Bizaardvark, a role she played for three seasons.

For the show’s soundtrack, Rodrigo wrote “All I Want” and co-wrote “Just for a Moment” with co-star Joshua Bassett. Rodrigo was praised for her performance, with Joel Keller from Decider describing her as “especially magnetic”. In 2022, she left the show at the end of its third season to focus on her music career.

Rodrigo signed with Interscope Records and Geffen Records in 2020. She negotiated the record deal to secure for herself ownership of the masters of her music. On January 8, 2021, she released her debut single, “Driver’s License”, which she co-wrote with producer Dan Nigro. Within the week of its release, “Driver’s License” was critically acclaimed, and broke Spotify’s record twice for most daily streams ever for a non-holiday song with over 15.7 million global streams on January 11 and over 17 million global streams the next day. It went on to break another Spotify record for the first song in history to hit 80 million streams in 7 days. The song debuted at number one on Billboard Hot 100 and reached number one in numerous other countries. Rodrigo stated in an interview that “It’s been the absolute craziest week of my life … My entire life just, like, shifted in an instant.”

She dubs The White Stripes band member Jack White her “hero of all heroes”. Her other influences include Alanis Morissette, Kacey Musgraves, Fiona Apple, St. Vincent, Cardi B, Gwen Stefani, and Avril Lavigne.

Olivia’s Music/Voice Type

Rodrigo’s voice type is identified as a soprano. Media outlets generally describe Rodrigo as a pop artist, musically rendering pop-rock, teen pop, and indie pop styles. Rodrigo has stated that she wants to be a songwriter and not “the biggest pop star that ever lived” and chose to sign with Interscope/Geffen Records because its CEO praised her songwriting, not her “potential star quality”. Music journalist Laura Snapes called Rodrigo a “flag-bearer” for a new wave of songwriters who incline towards power ballads “that are as emotional as ever, but a project that emotion inward, trading bombast for hush”, and described her musical style as rooted in heartache, mental health, and sadness, without being melodramatic, expressing more realistic perspectives than resilient.

Rodrigo became consumer beauty brand Glossier’s first-ever celebrity partner in April 2022.

Olivia is believed to be extremely friendly and carries a pleasant aura wherever she goes.

It’s always a joy to meet someone who accepts you for who you are, and that’s exactly who Olivia is. Her best friends recall several moments of Olivia’s generosity. The social media star apparently would share the last cookie with someone (who does that?!), and even times when she would let another person get in line before her during lunch.
