BIOGRAPHY - Misty Lee Olsen


Misty Lee Olsen is a singer/songwriter from Barrie, Ontario who is attracting attention from both sides of the border. Her unique, delightful clear, country voice is her true instrument, and her distinct talents often seem second to her luminously warm and friendly personality. In addition Misty has a great natural talent as a lyricist and melody writer. After performing various family functions and local small venues, Misty decided to make her dream a reality, and pursued a career in country music full time. After making the 2004 regional finals of the famed “Nashville Star” TV talent search, Misty began writing and performing as often as she could, and was approached in 2007 by three time Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA) winning producer of the year, Joel Feeney (‘Nothing Bout Love Makes Sense’ Leann Rimes) to produce her debut CD.

Shortly there after, Canadian-based Royalty Records, Inc. signed Misty to an album marketing and distribution deal for the debut CD. In late 2007, Misty was invited to perform at the 2007 CCMA Country Music Week—New Artist Showcase, a critical endorsement by an industry panel of insiders that solidifies Misty as ‘one-to-watch’ in the country music industry. Previous showcase performers include Shania Twain, George Canyon and recently acclaimed group, The Higgins. In late 2008, Misty was awarded a coveted music grant from the Foundation to Assist Canadian Talent on Recordings(FACTOR) for her upcoming project. Shortly after this honour, Misty announced she secured a publishing agreement with Nashville publishing house, Songscape Music, LLC. Managed by Nashville industry veteran, Robyn Taylor-Drake, Misty joined the Lucky Hennessy/ASCAP writing team and has been working with some of music’s top writing talents. She recently received her first song ‘cut’ under the label—a huge coup for a budding writer in the ultra-competitive Nashville scene. In July 2008, Misty's heartfelt ballad about unrequited love "Stay Away"- was featured in the Hallmark Channel, made-for-TV movie "Every Second Counts," which aired to up to 85 million households in the U.S. This significant achievement garnered her noteworthy attention south of the Canadian border. Misty spent most of 2008 and 2009 touring between Ontario and western Canada, performing and building her fan base leading up to the album release in March 2010. Misty’s first single, ‘A Little Bit of Love,’ generated considerable radio play across Canada in its advance release; a huge feat for a new-to-the-scene recording artist. It also captured the attention of fans, and left them hungry for a follow up radio single.

‘The Story of a Girl,’ the title track from Misty’s debut album, is the newest song to Canadian country radio, and is already a sensation with fans across the country. Misty’s debut album, ‘The Story of a Girl,’ is a charming compilation of beautiful ballads and energetic up-tempo songs that bring the listener into Misty’s world of love, hope, heartbreak and self-realization. It is a revealing and relatable look at the powerful journey of a young woman, and the compelling music has the potential to help, heal and empower listeners. ‘The Story of a Girl’ is one of the most anticipated albums to come from a female singer/songwriter in year’s, and Misty is looking forward to living her dream of being Canada’s biggest sensation.
