Mark Olson, co-founder of acclaimed alt-country band the Jayhawks, released Many Colored Kite, his second solo album in July 2010. With a softly cracked voice that melds beautifully with female harmony vocals, as well as the gorgeous guitar-piano-drum arrangements, he creates a world of back-to-basics folk tranquility.

Olson's dreamy, melodic and soulful songs may take some time to sink in, but once they do, you’ll find his voice uplifting. His songs arrive out of mid-life, somewhere between his native Minnesota and his current home in Joshua Tree, Calif, and at times he still seems to be putting his heart back together again after his divorce from fellow songsmith, Victoria Williams. Ultimately, the lyrics capture the soft spots of having loved, lost and continued on, and frequently draw on natural images as metaphors for his experience.
