The OK Factor Bio
Olivia Diercks and Karla Colahan, cellist and violinist of The OK Factor, have one word to describe their musical connection: lucky. The ease with which they write and perform their original music is organic, and their new-classical crossover style has caught the attention of the Minnesota music community in which they live and work. It continues to bring them success on stages such as The Dakota Jazz Club, The Cedar Cultural Center, The Aster Cafe, The Stone Arch Bridge Festival and more.
Olivia and Karla are passionate about educational outreach and community engagement. They conduct workshops for string students of all ages, using their instruments as vehicles for creative and innovative musical thinking. Olivia and Karla also provide programming to reach community members where they're at, creating an experience that inspires and encourages communities to explore music, and cultivate a curiosity about its role in their lives.
Following four years of writing, performing, and regional touring, The OK Factor is excited to share their fourth studio album, "That's Enough of That", released in August of 2016.
