Olivia Scibelli is an upstate New York-raised, Tennessee-residing stylist, singer-songwriter, community-builder and co-owner of two small businesses in Nashville, where she’s lived for the past decade. Her day job: Crescent, a woman-owned-and-operated salon (motto: “No pretense, just exceptional hair”). Her passion project: Drkmttr, Music City’s premier all-ages space for live music, arts and activism since 2015 (“All ages, all people”). At Drkmttr, Olivia has built a thriving business from punk-rock roots with her ease of communication, genuine love for people and diligence with organizing and administrative work. She has stewarded a small but dedicated crew through numerous storms — closing and reopening four times, making an all-ages venue lucrative, and now — her greatest feat to date — staying solvent during a pandemic. How? By refocusing on the ever-present public service mission of the space (especially in the absence of shows), hosting mutual aid efforts, political outreach and calling on Drkmttr’s far-ranging extended family to raise $25,000 (and counting) to keep it operational. In her free time Olivia enjoys Broadway musicals, gardening, traveling, thrifting, cats, and spending time with her loved ones — her adoring partner Charlie, father Anthony and their three cats Townes, Elliott and Sandy. Post-COVID, her hope is to run for public office.
