The Alabama Rodeo Stars

About The Alabama Rodeo Stars: Olav Larsen was born in Stavanger, a small town on the south-west coast of Norway. He currently lives there with his girlfriend and their two children. His passion for american roots music came at an early age. «My father used to play all kinds of americana music» Olav says. «On the one hand he would listen to the old records by Hank Williams and Robert Johnson, but on the other hand he also enjoyed the new generation of great songwriters, like Bob Dylan, Neil Young, John Prine, Guy Clark and Townes Van Zandt to mention just a few» he continues. For Olav it doesn’t stop here. Allthough he still listens to all the old guys, he also finds inspiration in the likes of Ryan Adams, Bright Eyes, Richmond Fountain and many of the other talanted singer/songwriters of his own generation. The Gospel & Drinking Songs EP was recorded in two days in the summer of 2004. It is Olav’s tribute to the traditional way of writing a song. He’s first long player intitled Love’s come to Town will be released in the month of may later this year.
