biography

Meg Olsen, American songstress, was born in Memphis, TN and raised in Las Vegas, NV so it comes as no surprise that music and the desire to perform run deep in her veins. That said, her first musical release had been a long time coming. After studying film in Seattle, WA and living in London, England for a spell, Meg settled finally in Los Angeles; working for a below-the-line film agency, developing a widely-followed style blog, Don Juan’s Reckless Daughter and secretly writing songs. By night, Meg was on the music scene and found many artists and musicians friends along the way. In 2010 she casually lent her voice to the duet “Saturday Night” by cult-favorite LA-band The Idyllists. Her recording debut caught the fans' attention and quickly parlayed itself into other musical opportunities including a stint in LA-based cabaret act, Dime Store Dollies with singer-songwriter Beth Jean and a spot as back-up singer for Canadian artist, Lucette on a European-tour supporting the Secret Sisters. Spurred on by these developments, Meg was encouraged to take her own songs to producer Daniel Dempsey (Until June, Jamestown Revival) and production company Bad Transmission and in late 2012 they began recording her first EP entitled “Deal from the Bottom”. After the very warm reception of the EP, Meg set her sights on finishing a full-length album. Reteaming with Dempsey they began work on Meg’s full-length debut, “CHARADE". The album was released worldwide in 2014. \\ Meg’s sultry voice could be compared to Hope Sandoval or Neko Case, but there’s a boldness and glamour to her sound that makes it very much her own.
