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.
Spanning multiple genres, it’s hard to quantify in one statement, but - “If Johann Sebastian Bach, Robert Johnson, Jimi Hendrix, Mark Knopfler, Ottmar Liebert and Kurt Cobain formed a band together, you’d get the same genre bending collection of songs as you do from this artist!” (Riffworld.com)
3 NEW SINGLES RELEASED!
“Just the right amount of too many guitars” (Riffworld.com)

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