Carla Olson & Todd Wolfe in Concert, April 20, 2019
Carla has made her career as a singer, songwriter, bandleader, and producer on the West Coast. Carla appeared in Bob Dylan's first video (Sweetheart Like You). Dylan gave Carla one of his songs (Clean Cut Kid) to return the favor! Her 1984 debut album, Midnight Mission, was as leader of the Textones and included Gene Clark, Ry Cooder and Don Henley as guests. A few years later Gene and Carla recorded what many view as the first Americana album, So Rebellious A Lover. Since then Carla has released solo albums and a live record with Mick Taylor. She is one of the few currently active women record producers and includes among her credits Paul Jones, (Manfred Mann), Phil Upchurch, Joe Louis Walker, and Barry Goldberg (Electric Flag, The Rides). Her recent duets album, Have Harmony, Will Travel, featured Richie Furay, Juice Newton, John York and James Intveldt. Carla has worked with Mick Taylor, Percy Sledge, Ry Cooder, Eric Clapton and many others.
Todd spent five years touring the world with Sheryl Crow including writing and recording with Sheryl. Since Todd’s departure from Sheryl’s band, he has spent the past 15 years touring Europe with his own band, The Todd Wolfe Band and releasing nine solo albums. Todd has also recorded with legendary Mountain guitarist-singer Leslie West. Todd can be heard on two recent albums by Leslie West as well as two albums by Mountain! Todd has appeared on two of Carla Olson’s albums as well as joining Carla on a tour of Japan in the early nineties. Some of Todd’s songs have been covered by artists, Stevie Nicks, Faith Hill, Larry McCray and Deborah Coleman to name a few.For more information about the artists:
