Based in the Washington DC area, Kevin Olson began his musical career while studying at Virginia Tech.
He started playing a unique style of percussive acoustic guitar and began to play street performances to earn some extra weekend money. After a couple of street sessions, videos started to make their way around campus and eventually someone from the Virginia Tech marketing team saw one. Kevin was invited to headline a halftime show for the Hokies Men's Basketball team in November 2014. Since then he has headlined a number of NCAA basketball halftime shows as well as playing around the Washington DC and Northern Virginia area at popular music venues. Kevin does all of the playing, recording, mixing, artwork, and distribution himself.
