BLUES: Delta Style, FOLK: like Joni
Hailing from San Francisco of Austrian parentage, Olga is among the vanguard of new blues artists combining innovation with a deep sense of roots. Like a backroads crooner come back to haunt us, her dedication to the blues shines through her voice and hollow-body electric Washburn. Having received classical training in voice, piano, and violin from a young age, she later discovered a connection to the genre; specifically classic and country blues.
Her early mentors Maria Muldaur and Los Lobos played pivotal roles in schooling this young talent. Under the tutelage of living legend Jessie Mae Hemphill, Olga continues her study of the blues. "Jessie Mae is without a doubt a major influence on me," she affirms, "I feel like I''ve been looking for her my whole life."
Olga now calls Memphis home. In addition to her extensive gigs producing local and nationally syndicated radio shows, she participated in Martin Scorcese''s documentary on the blues with Jessie Mae, among others. She''s shared the stage in recent years with Jimbo Mathus, Coco Robicheaux, Robert Randolph, DJ Logic, Mofro, Papa Mali, Hobex, North Mississippi Allstars, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Jim Dickinson, Los Lobos, Johnny Neel (Allman Brothers), and Matt Abts (Gov''t Mule).
