Biography

Kenny Olson Highlights:

Kenny Olson is the best rock guitarist who you might not have heard of. But that won’t be for much longer.

Let the words of his peers tell you just how accomplished this multi-platinum guitarist is:

“Kenny Olson is one of the best rock guitarists on the scene right now.” — Keith Richards

“I love listening to Kenny play. He’s got a real voice with his guitar, which is a rare talent.” — Paul Rodgers.

“Kenny is and always will be considered part of the Metallica family. As for his guitar playing - that simply speaks for itself and needs no further comment.” —- Metallica

You get the point. Olson has chops, sure, but he matches that with instinct and passion, grit and originality. All of that is heard on KENNY OLSON CARTEL, the Nashville-based axeman’s first full-scale solo album on an eye-popping resume that includes a founding tenure in Kid Rock’s Twisted Brown Trucker Band as well numerous appearances on the Experience Hendrix Tour and live or recording collaborations with the likes of Metallica, Aerosmith, Billy Gibbons, Buddy Guy, Run-DMC, Chaka Khan, Sheryl Crow, Faith Evans, Les Paul and the all-star group 7daybinge and more.

The world has heard a lot from Kenny Olson over the years, but this is the Kenny Olson the world has been waiting to hear.

“It’s just time for me to do this,” Olson explains. “I’ve been blessed. I’ve gotten to do pretty much everything one could dream of doing and work with some amazing people and explore a lot of different elements with my music. I’m always growing as a guitar player, and I have a lot of different influences from all genres. The Cartel lets me put it all out there in one fell swoop.”
