Kristina Olsen is one of the most entertaining and compelling performers on the international acoustic circuit, a superb multi-instrumentalist (acoustic guitar, steelbody slide guitar, saxophone, concertina, banjo, mandolin and piano) as well as an award-winning songwriter with a big bluesy voice.
Her mix of powerful songs ranging from sassy bottleneck blues to lilting ballads to swing jazz to raunch and roll (as well as her hilarious storytelling) makes for a diverse and satisfying musical experience.
Los Angeles Times: Olsen is an eclectic artist worthy of much more acclaim.
Acoustic Musician: Strong songs and guitar playing, great singing and intimate stories... after hearing it I’m in love with the lady.
Folk Almanac: This is Olsen playing solo to the world, and the results are stunning...playing slide guitar with a fury, finely crafted songs, personal and delivered with fire...
Boston Herald: ..wicked blues slide guitar...soon her storytelling becomes so wonderful, and her music so expressive, one realized that the untamed Olsen is more valuable than any slicker version could be.
