Call in to speak with the host
Due to conflicts, Brad Webb is being rescheduled.
She goes simply by Olga and it the only thing simple about this rising star. Born and raised in San Francisco, Olga was classically trained in music as a child. Her parents encouraged her as she began writing songs on the piano at the age of five. In high school, Jimi Hendrix provided her first taste of the blues.
As a teen she was introduced to the band Los Lobos and to singer Maria Muldaur, under whom she apprenticed. She learned of Jessie Mae Hemphill and ended up moving to Mississippi where the two women became close friends. Olga spent years honing her sound in the hill country of northern Mississippi and has released three albums to date.
So much to ask this young woman with a talent that has been equated to Bonnie Raitt.
Oli Brown picked up a guitar in 2002 for the first time and since then he has played with the likes of Buddy Guy and Taj Mahal.
He also won the 2010 2010 Brtish Blues Award for Male Vocalist of the Year and Young Artist of the Year.
He and his bandmates, Wayne Proctor on drums and Ron Sayer on bass are currently storming around America making new fans.
Olie will take some time away from playing to relax and take a seat on The Couch where we will discuss his career, the current tour and what is in his future.
