A couple months ago, Bozeman singer Olive Nichole changed her stage name to sorryimolive, a one-word mumbled apology that had been her social media handle since middle school.
In some ways sorryimolive, whose debut album “Sorry To Be Emotional But…” is out Friday, embodies an apologetic epithet. In an interview over coffee for this article, she apologizes for an almost indistinguishable stutter, for the hoodie she is wearing to keep warm in air conditioned rooms, and for the logo on the hoodie that may be a distraction when she has her photo taken.
Friends will make jokes about the apologies. “I say ‘I’m sorry,’ and they say ‘Yeah,you’re Olive,’” the artist explained.
