About Carla Olson

Along with Kathy Valentine (a future member of the Go-Go's), Carla Olson formed the Textones in the early '80s for a few singles on IRS. (Most of these tracks appear on Through the Canyon [Rhino] and Back in Time [Demon U.K.].) The band's major-label debut, Midnight Mission (A&M), included help from Don Henley, Ry Cooder, Barry Goldberg, and Gene Clark. Cedar Creek, the band's second album, appeared in 1987 on Enigma Records. Olson then worked on many projects, including ones by John Fogerty, Henley, and Eric Johnson and a duet album with Clark. In 1988, she recorded a self-titled solo album (for Amigo Musik) in Sweden, backed by Wilmer X. After another duet project, this time with former Rolling Stones guitarist Mick Taylor, Olson's second solo LP (Within an Ace) was released in 1993 on Watermelon Records; Reap the Whirlwind followed the next year. That album signaled a period of relative quiet from the guitarist, as she disappeared into private life while her best-of collection hit the shelves. It wasn't until 2001 that she returned, boasting The Ring of Truth, an album featuring Taylor and a handful of roots rock tunes that showcased her weathered vocals and comfortable sound. Olson has also found success on the other side of the studio glass, producing records for Barry Goldberg, Doña Oxford, Jake Andrews, Joe Louis Walker, Davis Gaines, Mare Winningham, Paul Jones, Ana Gazzola, Chubby Tavares, and Phil Upchurch. In 2013 Olson began making her own music again, releasing an LP of cover songs called Have Harmony, Will Travel, which featured a bevy of guest vocalists, including Peter Case, Juice Newton, Scott Kempner, and John York. In 2015 Omnivore reissued expanded editions of the Textones albums Midnight Mission and Cedar Creek, and in 2017 Sunset Blvd Records gave Olson's 1988 eponymous solo debut, recorded in Sweden, its first U.S. release. ~ John Bush
