Legendary Folk-Blues Performer/Songwriter, Netcaster & Published Author, too!
“In the tradition of Johnny Cash and Tom Waits, Olney has become A PIONEER OF THE AMERICANA MUSIC SCENE.”
David Olney's "Body Of Evidence" 3-CD Box Set includes:
ROBBERY & MURDER (Deadbeet Records)
THE STONE (Deadbeet Records) - David's second thematic mini-album release! The collection features three previously released tunes completely reinterpreted (Jerusalem Tomorrow, Brays, Barabbas) and three new tunes (Brains, Flesh and Blood, A Soldier's Report) to round out the story. You've probably deduced what story is being told.....but this is in no way a religious thing. It's just another telling from a great story-teller.
FILM NOIR (Deadbeet Records) - “...as SMOKY AS BOGART's ASH TRAY.” –Democrat & Chronicle (Rochester, NY)
“Though he's most reminiscent of Tom Waits... Olney evokes Buddy Holly and the Platters, conjuring up that classic era with AN AIR OF TIMELESSLESS.” – Acoustic Guitar Magazine
• “OL' DIZ: A Musical Baseball Story - A Writers' Work-In-Progress”
“ Olney Unbound...part Baptist preacher, part caustic comedian, and part existential bluesman...Olney shouted, moaned and howled his sharply observed hard-luck tales and quirky characters studies. [Sergio] Webb, who looks like he stepped out of a Clint Eastwood spaghetti western, provided a dizzying array of textures, employing unconventional techniques." – MTV's Urge.com
