Once described by ROLLING STONE as a “talented Zelig,” Carla Olson has received critical acclaim for her work as a solo performer, band leader (The Textones), and producer. In varying capacities she has worked with former Rolling Stones guitarist Mick Taylor, Percy Sledge(Sledge has recorded five songs that Olson has written or co-written), Ry Cooder, Gene Clark, Don Henley, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, John Fogerty, Mikael Rickfors, and many others.

Her musical partnerships in the 1980s included former Byrd member Gene Clark (which resulted in a duet album, So Rebellious a Lover) and Mick Taylor.

In 2013, after not releasing an album of her own since The Ring Of Truth in 2001, Olson recorded Have Harmony, Will Travel, which was an album of cover songs with guest vocalists on each track including Rob Waller, John York, Richie Furay, Juice Newton, James Inveldt, Scott Kempner, Peter Case and Gary Myrick.

HAVE HARMONY WILL TRAVEL 2 continues the traditional established on HHWT 1. Guests include the Eagles Timothy B. Schmit, British Invasion Idol Peter Noone, and archival recordings with Percy Sledge and Gene Clark. As with HWWT 1, it is an album of direct, kinetic productions, compelling song choices, and inspired performances. Though there isn't a weak cut in the bunch, there are some soaring highlights including the first single with Peter Noone, GOODBYE MY LOVE and the leadoff track TIMBER Have Harmony, Will Travel 2 is a fitting expansion of the series to Volume 1, and is an excellent entry point for music fans unfamiliar with Carla Olson.
