 Aina S. Olsen

Aina S. Olsen a vocalist from Mjøndalen began his career in 1979 in the group Black Angels. Got a record deal in Germany in 1982, but withdrew from the deal. Debuted on record in 1984 with "In Ten Pieces", an album recorded in Denmark with Phil Barrett and John Puk Quist as producers. Second album, "Target Practice", was recorded in England with Mike Vernon as producer. Aina used then dance band Image as backing the next two years.

Rolf Graf was producer on "Living In A Boy´s World" which showed a more rocky Aina. Graf brought out the best in her voice, and she appeared as a successful crossing of Pat Benatar and Bonnie Tyler. Opening cut was an amateur recording that Aina had made on a tape recorder in your living room in 1972.

In 1989 she moved to the United States, where she works as a costume designer in Los Angeles and calls himself Aina Skinnes O´Kane. In 2005, Living In A Boy´s World reissued with five bonus tracks on MTM Music, while a brand new album called "Little Escapades" came out on Beast Of Burden in 2008. The new release was partly recorded with musicians from the new hometown, with Chris Standring and Rodney Lee as the main contributors.

Aina has also worked as a photographer, and that so-called "staff writer" for Windswept Pacific. She has for many years had his own studio called Shinto Studio, and also operates The Critter´s Den.
