Allan Olsen

Allan Olsen is certainly a Danish folk-rock singer/songwriter who began his single recording profession in the 1980s and rose to chart-topping success in his homeland. Delivered on March 18, 1956, in Grønholt, Denmark, he was inspired primarily with the early- to middle-’70s vocalist/songwriter motion. He cites among his all-time preferred albums the Who’s Who’s Following (1971), Neil Young’s Harvest (1972), Nick Drake’s Green Moon (1972), Bert Jansch’s L.A. Turnaround (1973), Randy Newman’s CLASSIC Guys (1974), and Bob Dylan’s Prior to the Overflow (1974). While obviously inspired by American and United kingdom music, Olsen thought we would compose and sing his tracks in his very own local dialect. At age group 33 he produced his solo recording debut with Norlan (1989), accompanied by Gajo (1990) and Pindsvin i Pigsko (1992). His 4th recording, Dalton (1992), a cooperation with Johnny Madsen and Lars Lilholt, was especially successful, as well as the double-disc live recording Rygter Fra Randområderne (1994) premiered in its wake. He released fresh studio room albums every few years thereafter, included in this Jern (1996), Sange for Rygere (1998), and Onomatopoietikon (2000), and also a steady blast of live albums and compilations. Olsen’s recognition remained constant well following the turn from the hundred years as the studio room albums Gæst (2004) and Multo Importante (2007) topped the Danish albums graph and several compilations had been released.
