Angel Olsen hails from sunny, gorgeous, post-industrial St. Louis, Missouri. Beginning her performing career at 16 in coffee shops, she honed her craft further in Chicago through both solo performances and contribution to the album and tour for Bonnie “Prince” Billy’s “Wolfroy Goes to Town.” 2014 marks the release of her sophomore album to coincide with an international tour across Europe and the US.

Olsen’s intimate songwriting is coupled with a strong, ethereal tone and hypnotic rhythm acoustic guitar, with varied influences including Skeeter Davis, homespun Americana, Spanish guitar and the French New-Wave chanteuse Francoise Hardy. Her first LP, Half Way Home, is available through Bathetic records here: http://batheticrecords.com/half_way_home/ with upcoming album “Burn Your Fire for No Witness” available for preorder from Jagjaguwar at http://jagjaguwar.com/onesheet.php?cat=JAG24.
