Three New Releases by Chris Olson - Over Three Decades in the Making!

“Just the right amount of too many guitars” - After 37 years of playin’ the guitar, I’ve finally decided to “officially” release some of the music my fingers came up with.

Where Were You” - Instrumental Rock - a funk-rock muscle car with a 500 horsepower MotorHead engine, a Ramones transmission and a set of Foo Fighters slicks that are barely street legal and ready to melt the pavement!  (Also featured in Kourtney & Kim Take New York)


What I Remember” - Instrumental Rock - A night in Seattle capped off with a drunk driver hit-and-run on the top level of the viaduct inspired this song.

Blizzard Song” - Instrumental Rock - A tribute to Randy Rhoads through the distorted fingers of a guitarist he inspired as a kid.

- Chris Olson is a veteran of the Seattle Grunge scene of the late 80’s and 90’s as both a musician and a sound engineer. He has shared the stage with members of Pearl Jam, Nirvana and Soundgarden to name just a few. His catalog spans multiple styles of music -  “If Johann Sebastian Bach, Robert Johnson, Jimi Hendrix, Mark Knopfler, Ottmar Liebert and Kurt Cobain formed a band together, you’d get the genre bending collection of tracks found in Chris Olson’s discography!”





"(ORIGINAL ROCK INSTRUMENTAL BLIZZARDSONG) Love the song! Has an epic feel to the structure ... like, kinda... Arm-hairs raised up epic! (Braedon)"  Braedon, Riffworld

"(COVER OF TOM PETTY BREAKDOWN) Shit, your music proves yer state of talent....I keep comin back! (AlteredAxis)"  AlteredAxis, Riffworld

"(COVER OF JIMI HENDRIX LITTLE WING) -- Another sparkler. The classical piece was great and this back to basics set is one to savour. Guitar and vox is my favourite style. Less is more musically and you are proving that here! -- MacMurphy"  MacMurphy, Riffworld
