Angel Olsen was born in St. Louis, lived for a time in Chicago, and currently resides in Asheville, North Carolina. She has recorded and toured with Bonnie "Prince" Billy as a backing singer, and has been releasing her own music since 2010. Olsen's first two albums were put out as cassette tapes, a format she is fond of, and still uses herself since her car has only a cassette player (and a radio, one assumes.) Her new album MY WOMAN is her second for the respected indie label Jagjaguwar, and is getting the kind of positive notices that should advance her career to the next level. The songwriter/vocalist/guitarist directed the video for "Shut Up Kiss Me," filming it at a vintage roller rink near Asheville.
