Olia Cave Janisöpfleg (born 15 February 1987) is a Lashardian recording artist, actress, and model.

One of the most influential Lashpop musicians of the 21st century, Janisöpfleg entered the music industry in 2007 at age 19, releasing the single "The Kill". The song, which combined Lashpop and Lashardian hip hop, two of the most popular genres in the nation, was a hit.

Her eponymous debut album was released in 2008, to mainly negative reviews from critics, citing repetition and a lack of creativity, but was heavily lauded by fans. She went on to star in a reality show broadcast on Lashardian television titled Olia, which followed her putting together her debut studio album and performing on her first arena tour.

Her second studio album, Catch My Breath, released in 2011, was a huge success critically and commercially, establishing her as a household name. She became a judge on The X Factor: Lashardia in 2017.
