2016 Live Entertainment



Lisa Ols0n


From soft and sweet to bluesy sass and heart wrenching loss, the range in Lisa’s music reflects her mix of life experiences and exposures.  A San Diego native, she grew up on a mix of musicals, oldies and Ella Fitzgerald.  After college she learned to play guitar, found her songwriter voice and employed the toils of entering adulthood as fodder for songs.  Most recently her songs have been shaped by exploring fjords and Viking roots while living and studying in Norway.
