Angel Olsen

Angel Olsen has partnered with PLUS1 so that $1 per ticket goes to supporting Voter Formation Project and their work increasing participation in elections using digital communications strategies to engage, register, and mobilize new and infrequent voters of color.

Angel Olsen is a songwriter, musician, performer and director of music videos. She delivers vulnerable songs with a distinctive warble informed by vintage country. Her early, spare, acoustic songs grew increasingly lush and dramatic across her several albums. Olsen debuted with the reverb-heavy solo indie folk of 2010’s Strange Cacti, expanding to an alt-country power trio for her third album, 2014’s Burn Your Fire for No Witness, her Billboard 200 debut. Two years later, My Woman reached a career-high number 47 on the chart. While maintaining an intimate character and a haunting sound reinforced by stylized echo, Olsen recorded 2019’s All Mirrors with a 14-piece orchestra. The follow-up, 2020’s Whole New Mess, offered an overhauled solo version of All Mirrors that included a pair of original songs. Inspired by both love and loss tied up in coming out as queer, her sixth studio album, Big Time, followed in 2022.

She has performed on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and Austin City Limits TV, and has been profiled in The New York Times Magazine, Rolling Stone, and Pitchfork, to name a few. Her albums are regularly regarded as some of the highest lauded albums each year of their release. Olsen has collaborated with artists including Mark Ronson, Sharon Van Etten, Cass McCombs, Hamilton Leithauser, Marissa Nadler, Jim James, Madi Diaz, and more.

On this tour, Angel will be performing solo, exploring songs from her entire catalog, digging into songs and eras she does not often get to when performing with her band.
