Chris Olson music review

"Fans of Britpop, Indie Rock and Soft Rock rejoice, Chris Olson's latest release "Dirty Summer (Remastered)" is the perfect blend of classic sound with a fresh twist. This first single from his upcoming album, "Building Stampedes", is a reflection on the ups and downs of teenage life, with a road trip vibe that transports listeners back to those nostalgic days."

El News

"This exquisite tune actually features a traditional folk melody that is seamlessly blended with a dash of alternative country, with hints of rock escaping through as the track gains pace. Detail-oriented and exuding a fully-realized and graciously nurtured arrangement that recalls the sound of the great singer/songwriter hits of the 1970s, this is an easy recommendation for any and all folk, country and rock fans - particularly those who appreciate punctilious song crafts as the one displayed here."

Chris Olson Music Review

"For the melody, Chris brings a country that helps in storytelling and when expressing emotions combined with a touch of indie rock. His voice is also powerful and delivers a certain aggressiveness that goes very well with the lyrics."

Chris Olson review Daily Music Spin

"His own sound is a culmination of visionary, forward-thinking, glistening, and somewhat mesmerizing soundscapes backed by tenderness and a soulful vibe to appeal to a wider fan base. His 2009 "For Emma" EP introduced to the music world an artist with a good ear for sound design and a knack for hit melodies!"
