Ottumwa, Iowa native but now San Francisco Bay Area based musician "wholesome" Jill Olson got her start playing in the late 80's with the short lived pop unit known as the Movie Stars, but is best known for the decade plus stint as the bassist/vocalist in roots country revivalists Red Meat. She's worked extensively with producer Dave Alvin and released two indie solo albums, as well as backed artist's like John Wesley Harding and Wanda Jackson. Despite many local fans, and having one of her songs gain mass exposure via an Academy Awards broadcast, she remains largely unknown to the general public. She once accounted her lack of success in a 2002 interview with Gina Arnold for the San Francisco Chronicle to the fact "I'm horrible at networking and kissing up to the right people.

I want to hang around people I like. Plus, I'm too retro -- that's the kiss of death. To make it, you have to look exactly one year behind the times. I'm 30 years behind the times.

I have always been ahead of or behind the curve -- too soon for alt-country, too late for punk. I was never a riot grrrl or a grunge gal or a sensitive, lovely folkie." http://cdbaby.com/cd/jillolson Read more on Last.fm.
