Sound Series: Angel Olsen

The Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh, PA
The Warhol welcomes Chicago-based singer-songwriter, Angel Olsen for the first time to the Museum’s intimate theater, on a tour supporting her latest release, Half Way Home, on Jagjaguwar Records. Olsen has collaborated with Emmet Kelly and his collective, the Cairo Gang, adding her unique vocal harmonies and textures to the Bonnie “Prince” Billy releases The Wonder Show of the World (2010) and Wolfroy Goes to Town (2011). In just three years into a solo career, Olsen has found a distinct voice with intimate arrangements that fall comfortably between the darker side of 50’s/60’s country crooners and her indie, alt-country/folk contemporaries. The lush harmonies of drone/folk ensemble, Pillars and Tongues, opens the show.
