Our one year anniversary 

It has been a year now since our band played their first show together!  It has been a great one and we have come a long way.  We appreciate all of your continued support and we can't wait to see what the next year will bring.

We just added a few things to our website store that you can buy online or at our shows. We have signed posters available in the store and brand new yellow tank tops with a new design that were a huge hit at our last show, when they were first available.  Also make sure to check out one of our newest releases on itunes called "When She Let Her Hair Down."

In the last couple days we have been writing a lot of new songs and we wrote one called "Caught in the Rain" that we have started to play at our shows that we really love.  We hope that you will be able to catch a show and listen to it but keep an eye out for a recording of it soon.

We are still showing all of our new songs to our connections that we have in L.A. and Nashville and they say they are waiting for the song that is going to be a sure fire hit.  Maybe it will be "Caught in the Rain" maybe the next one we write?  Who knows :) But we know it's coming. 

New Songs! 

We just returned from Nashville were we wrote a few songs that we are very happy with!!  Since we got back we are have been practicing with the band and taught them the songs and learned some new covers.  It feels great to be back at it with the band after James got his cast off from his broken finger.  Make sure you make a show sometime soon!!  
     Our trip to Nashville went really well and the publishing company we were writing with is talking about coming up to watch a show and hiring us on to write songs with them.  We were stoked to learn that they want us to keep the songs we write for our own album instead of trying to sell them to already established artists.  They want us to continue to write until we have a stockpile of songs with a few sure fire hits and then they are going to show all of that to Sony Records!

     We like where this is going!  Oh ya and we got hired to play at The Washington State Fair this year twice! Check the dates on the show tab!!  

     We are also very excited that we have been sponsored by Northwest Hydro Print based out of Montesano!  They Coated our speakers in Camo and engraved our band name into them also!  Make sure you hit them up with all your camo and laser engraving needs.  Camo Bands has also sponsored us and you can go to their website (http://camobands.com/) and get a 20% discount by typing in "Olsons2014" when you checkout!

    Luke has been busy recording our new tunes so be on the lookout for new releases and music videos.  Imperial Cymbals just reached out to us and is interested in sponsoring our drummer James Blackburn who just got our band's name on his kick drum!!  

    We can't wait for all the shows coming up and all the opportunities this summer will bring! 

Yeehaw! 

The end of the school year is in sight for the bros!  Just a few more weeks and we'll be down in Nashville again.  Check the schedule out!  There are a ton of new shows that we have booked recently where we will be headlining for some big venue and fairs!!  Also check out some of our new tunes that we have been writing on the music tab.  Words cannot describe how ready for summertime we are.  Can't wait to have more time to write music and be playing huge shows!!!  Thank you to everyone who is out there sharing the word about our band, a bunch of the shows that we have booked have come from our fans who are out there telling people about our music!  We really appreciate you all.

Much love,
The Bros

Looking for a Sponsorship 

As the list of larger shows for this summer continues to expands with the addition of the Okanogan, Whitman, Clallam, and Yakima County Fairs we are realizing the need for a trailor to haul all of our equipment around!  We are searching for someone who would want to front the money and have their company logo on the side of the trailor that would be seen everywhere our band went and everywhere we play!  Sounds like a good deal to us ;)  We recently played at the Grays Harbor Rodeo and had a very large rowdy crowd.. It was awesomeeee.  Summer is just around the corner along with lots of big things coming for the band!  Stay in the loop by following us on Facebook :)  https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Olson-Bros-Band/143307939114922

Writing, Booking, and playing shows. Podcast

We have been keeping very busy lately!  We wrote a new song called let your hair down that is on the website playlist.  It is one of our best songs yet so make sure you check it out!!  Lately we have been booking more big shows for the summer time, including a headliner spot at the Clallam county rodeo, Grays Harbor Rodeo, and the Whitman County Fair, with a few more in the works.  We also nailed down the dates that we will be going to Nashville to write with hit songwriter Brandon Kinney in May!  Lots of exciting things in the works! We will keep you in the loop!!!

Much love from - The Bros

  1. When She Let Her Hair Down

Nashville! 

We just got back from Nashville!!  The first night there we went downtown and saw all the live music and had some fun.  It was amazing to see all the talent and history in Nashville and to get our dance on!  The next day it was time for business and we spent the whole day with Tom Leis Music.  To start the day off we played a few of our songs for the people in charge of the company and they want to have us back in May to write with some songwriters that have written quite a few #1 hits!            After that we took a tour of Music Row and  saw where all the big country singers write songs and record their music.  The lady in charge told us that she was thinking of showing our song to Darius Rucker!!  Next we went to Oceanway Studios and met the guy in charge there and played him a few songs. Countless stars have recorded in this studio and They were recording for Shakira that night.   He thought that our songs were hits and we were told “when he gets bored he likes to start up people’s careers.”  Needless to say we are hoping that he gets bored soon. 
            The last stop on our consultation day was with a songplugger.  He takes songs and matches them with artists and after he heard the song “The Hardway”  he said he wished that he could pitch the song to Jason Aldean right away but we would need to work a contract out with the management first.
            At the end of a very good day we watched the Texaco Country Showdown live competition and got to have our picture taken with LeAnn Rimes and we played a few songs with the whole band at the after party in Margaritaville downtown!
            Thank you all again for voting for us in this competition and giving us a chance to win.  We are flattered by all of your support and love seeing you all at our shows.  We are always booking more shows so check out our schedule and see if you can make any of them :) You guys rock!!!

Christmas Break 

Isaac got off school for Christmas Break a few days ago and you know what that means!  More time for music.  The Olson Bros have been on the grind the past couple days putting the finishing touches on their album "Sunrise" and calling up all the fun venues they can think of to get more shows!  Take a look at the schedule and see just how many new shows they are lining up! It's pretty exciting stuff and they hope to see some of you there.
Yesterday Luke and Isaac were at the 96.9 KAYO radio station downtown Olympia being interviewed so make sure you are listening in because that interview should be playing along with our song Sunrise!
The Bros are still riding high from their win in the Showdown and just found out that they are flying out on the 15th of January.  While they are down in Nashville they will be talking to Tom Lei's Studio which specializes in helping songwriters make it in the industry, they will be attending the live competition where they will be announced as the winners of the contest and hopefully have their song played at the Ryman Auditorium, and they are in talks with 5B Artist Management about extending their trip to record some songs in a professional studio.
Thank you all for your continued support, we will keep you updated! :)

THE OLSON BROS ARE NATIONAL CHAMPS!!!!!!! 

The Texaco Country Showdown Songwriting contest crowned a new national champion on November 25th 2013!  The Champion wasn’t from Nashville, Oklahoma, or Texas, the winners of the 2013 songwriters contest were The Olson Bros out of Olympia, Washington! The brothers, Isaac and Luke, composed the winning song “Sunrise” together this last summer. Sunrise won the National Contest where hundreds of songwriters competed throughout the USA for the title and grand prize.
 

The Olson Bros won $5000 and a trip to Nashville in January, where they will be introduced at the Texaco Country Live Showdown in Nashville and they will get to consult with professionals in the music industry.  The Olson Bros would like to thank their family, friends, and fans for taking the time to vote for their song, always believing in them, and for being the best!!!


“We will continue to keep you all updated everyday! But for now... we are gonna celebrate. WE’RE GOIN TO NASHVILLE!!!!!!” said Luke Olson.

The Olson Bros are Texaco Country Showdown National Finalists! 

The Olson Bros Band entered their original song "Sunrise" in the 2013 Texaco Country Showdown songwriting competition and won for the month of July! Their song is now in the running among 5 other monthly winners to win the grand prize (chosen by the judges) of $5000 and a trip to Nashville to consult with a big name record label! The grand prize winner will be announced near the end of THIS NOVEMBER so less than a couple weeks away! Sunrise is a feel good mainly acoustic guitar and mandolin song with awesome harmonies. You can check it out by watching the music video on youtube or purchasing the song on itunes! We all wish The Olson Bros Band the best of luck as this could be a huge breakthrough for them!

    Isaac and Luke came to play at McLane Elementary's last GRIN assembly of the school year last Friday. McLane is the boy's old elementary school and we loved having them come play for the kids and staff. The audience was energized and loved to hear stories about Isaac and Luke from their days at McLane. Great music and good times hanging out with the kids. Thanks for inspiring the next generation of entertainers!
