"Transparent vocals & a deeply percussive guitar style blend funk and folk in Elion Olson’s intimate stage performances.
Elion Olson view's songwriting as a way of giving back. Where some musicians compose as a way of channeling their life struggles, Elion's hope is that his listeners will hear something that makes them feel better about their own lives. His guitar playing style, like life itself, is rhythmic, exciting and edgy. His voice expresses a transparent heart with a soft, welcoming quality and is immediately infectious. His songs build emotionally like a romantic railway journey through beautiful landscape. Olson is a great example of how music should be experienced - as a gift for everyone to share."
Percussionist/Vocalist - Glenn Frey Band
“Music and words can tear into you so quietly, starting a brushfire come full force to change you forever. The song that uplifts you today can be the reason for your hiding tomorrow. A hundred songs later, the road less traveled is, at times, lonely on the journey and filled with friends in the clearing. Sometimes finding that way takes asking for help inside and out. Sometimes it’s on paper before I’m ready. I’m so grateful for what music does for me and I always look forward to sharing the good times and bad, distilled down to an evening in a well lit room, for friends I don’t yet know. This record is a history of love and a stepping into what's next. Some of these are 10 years old. 'Maybe' is 2 weeks young.
