David's songs have been recorded by great artists like Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, Del McCoury, Tim O'Brien, Kane/Welch/Kaplin, Ann Rabson and Lonnie Brooks to name a few.... With special guests: PETE FIDLER, RUTH HAZLETON & BILL JACKSON.
Extraordinarily prolific singer-songwriter David Olney has become known worldwide for his intense live performances and intelligent compositions. His old buddy, Townes Van Zandt once said that his favorite writers were Mozart, Lightnin’ Hopkins, Bob Dylan, and David Olney. His songs have been recorded by Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, Del McCoury, Kane, Welch and Kaplin, Tim O’Brien, Slaid Cleaves, Dale Ann Bradley and Ann Rabson. Steve Earle, a pretty fine songwriter himself, has played his tunes live, offering his own testimonial. Olney is an inventive, masterful songwriter – the songs stand on their own as among the best you’ll hear. Live, he’s a showman. Like Bruce Springsteen, James Brown, Leonard Cohen, and others – he knows the experience is even more important than the songs. He wants to make his audience laugh, cry, and think. Olney is joined onstage by touring buddy Sergio Webb, a brilliant multi-instrumentalist and often described as everyone’s ‘favorite guitar player in Nashville’ – a ‘small weird orchestra’ in himself.
