Olga: Whatever You Want (feat. Cody Dickinson)

New Orleans singer Olga teamed up with Cody Dickinson (North Mississippi Allstars) for her new album Whatever You Want. They wrote the songs together, and came up with a heartfelt collection to country-tinged slow blues tunes.

Olga has no need to raise her voice to get her message across. There is a lot of pain, loss and heartbreak. Olga went through a divorce and Cody lost his father Jim Dickinson when they were recording the album, which cast a shadow over the project. However, there is also glimmer of hope in songs like the slow honky-tonk It Is What Is singalong and confident album closer Time for Somebody New.
