Keith Olsen

Keith Olsen is one of the more prolific and successful music producers of the second half of the 20th century, with over 200 productions to his credit, yielding sales of 110 million copies on single, LP, or CD, 45 Gold (or Platinum) Record Awards, and six Grammy Awards. Born in Sioux Falls, SD, he later moved to Wayzata, MN, when he was 12 years old, and attended school in Minneapolis. He developed a strong interest in music as a boy -- nor was that interest limited to one category or genre; Olsen was as fascinated by classical music as he was by pop and rock music. He took up the bass as an instrument and played with several local bands before he moved to California. He had managed to pick up some experience in recording within the limited facilities available in Minneapolis, but his real introduction to the art of producing came when he met Curt Boettcher, the renowned guitarist/singer-turned-sunshine pop/psychedelic producer. Boettcher was an influence on the younger Olsen, as was his subsequent contact with Brian Wilson. Although Olsen was playing bass in the Music Machine, which enjoyed a huge hit with the single "Talk Talk," he had already set his sights on production as a career goal.
