Olen candidly describes himself as "overthinking, oversharing, and overwhelmed," and he's let it all out in his debut EP. "Only recently have I felt more comfortable in my own skin - and I'm still working on it!" he admits. "Music is a way that I feel comfortable with myself and it's how I can relate to the world around me. Getting to make music with people I love, and then getting to perform it in front of people I love... that's it. I'm just trying to be comfortable being myself!" With Olen, the artist reminds us that self-discovery is ongoing and ever-present, rather than an end in itself.

"I hope that people can listen to a song and know that it's okay to not have everything figured out, and know that we're all just trying our best. If someone can come away from the songs feeling good about themselves and who they are, that would make me feel good. These songs are me trying to figure myself out. We're all just works in progress!"

Without a doubt, Olen's debut EP is the work of a late bloomer coming into full bloom.



About Mission Theater

Experience a slice of Portland history. What is now known simply as “the Mission” was originally home to the Swedish Mission Covenant congregation in the early 20th century, and despite its staid, buttoned up appearance, this place now hosts live music, video dance nights and special events on select nights each month. 


The location that serves as one of McMenamins favorite neighborhood theater pubs was the locus of great spiritual zeal beginning in the 1890s. That's when the Swedish Evangelical Mission established its church here....

From a church to a theater-pub to event space, the Mission's history ain't exactly saintly. Click here for more info!
