Her family migrated to San Jose California when she was 10 years old.
Coming from a family that is musically oriented and being around musicians all her childhood, her passion for playing the accordion grew stronger.
Liz received her first accordion lesson from her father Antonio Olivo in 1992 with a Hohner Corona II and was inspired with music from her relatives, and Chavela from Grupo Express who was the only female accordionist at that time. Hohner Accordions were her first choice as a beginner and after trying other brands she continues to play Hohner Accordions.

With big dreams and a humble heart filled with gratitude for everyone who has supported her in her musical path, Liz Olivo continues to perform giving her best in each note she plays on her accordion.
She will be performing with a back-up band consisting of bass, drums and guitar.
