Carla Olson

Biography

Alongside Kathy Valentine (another person in the Go-Go’s), Carla Olson shaped the Textones in the first ’80s for a couple singles in IRS. (Many of these paths appear on With the Canyon [Rhino] and Back in its history [Demon U.K.].) The band’s major-label debut, Midnight Objective (A&M), included help from Don Henley, Ry Cooder, Barry Goldberg, and Gene Clark. Cedar Creek, the band’s second record, made an appearance in 1987 on Enigma Information. Olson then done many tasks, including types by John Fogerty, Henley, and Eric Johnson along with a duet record with Clark. In 1988, she documented a self-titled single record (for Amigo Musik) in Sweden, supported by Wilmer X. After another duet task, this time around with previous Rolling Rocks guitarist Mick Taylor, Olson’s second single LP (In a Ace) premiered in 1993 on Watermelon Information; Reap the Whirlwind implemented the next season. That record signaled an interval of relative calm through the guitarist, as she vanished into private lifestyle while her best-of collection strike the cabinets. It wasn’t until 2001 that she came back, boasting The Band of Truth, an recording offering Taylor and a small number of roots rock music that showcased her weathered vocals and comfy sound. Olson in addition has found success on the far side of the studio room glass, producing information for Barry Goldberg, Performña Oxford, Jake Andrews, Joe Louis Walker, Davis Gaines, Mare Winningham, Paul Jones, Ana Gazzola, Chubby Tavares, and Phil Upchurch. In 2013 Olson started making her personal music again, liberating an LP of cover tunes called Have Tranquility, Will Travel, which presented a bevy of visitor vocalists, including Peter Case, Juice Newton, Scott Kempner, and John York. In 2015 Omnivore reissued extended editions from the Textones albums Midnight Objective and Cedar Creek, and in 2017 Sunset Blvd Information offered Olson’s 1988 eponymous single debut, documented in Sweden, its 1st U.S. launch.
