Welcome to the creative path podcast with Matt Olson. This podcast is not a broadcast or a typical interview. It is a candid one on one conversation about the ins and outs of trying to live a creative life
Over the past 18 years I have had success and failure as a musician. There have been periods where I sacrificed everything to remain on my creative path and other times where I tried desperately to escape it. My motivations and goals have changed drastically over the years, what I get out of it, or perceive to get out, each conclusion remains in question.
I started this podcast to have a reason to ask people about their creative path because by doing so I ultimately gain new insight into my own.
Matt Olson has been writing, recording, and performing music for 18 years. Starting in the mid 90's as a founding member and guitarist for Iowa rock band Rearview Mirror provided Matt the opportunity to play record label showcases in Los Angeles and New York as a teenager and record an album with famed record producer Steve Lillywhite (U2, Rolling Stones, Dave Matthews) and tour around the USA. Since then Matt has continued to write, record, and perform music exploring genre's from hard rock to folk, from soul to electronica as well as working with other artists at his basement Ghost In My House Studio.
