CBGB Festival 2013 & Folk Alliance International will be presenting live in concert the legendary Americana music artist David Olney this Friday, Oct. 11, 2013 at Subculture, located at 45 Bleeker St. in New York City! The doors will open at 7:00 pm, with music starting at 8:00 pm. David Olney's performance will start at 11:30 pm. Also performing will be Arianna Gillis & Sam Baker.
As one of Americana music's earliest pioneers, David Olney has released more than 20 albums spanning over four decades, including six live recordings. His "sound" is often likened to Tom Waits, Johnny Cash and Randy Newman, but he carries a style uniquely all his own.
His brilliant compositions, frequently featuring his signature biting humor, have been recorded by such diverse artists as Emmylou Harris, Steve Earle, Linda Ronstadt, Del McCoury, Lonnie Brooks, Tim O’Brien, and countless others. Mr. Olney has also become well known for his live performances, famed for their intensity and vivid-often humorous-storytelling.
A Nashville-based touring and recording artist since the 1970s, David Olney closed out this past Summer with a critically acclaimed cross-country tour that took him and his ace guitarist Sergio Webb from Boise all the way to Little Rock, Arkansas. That tour followed on the heels of his successful California tour in which Olney co-starred with Anne McCue.
Preceding those tours, David Olney enjoyed a triumphant debut tour of Australia in March, followed by the release in Scandinavia of Olney's exciting new album, accompanied by his promotional tour there to standing room only audiences. During this recent touring, Mr. Olney's "Postcard From Mexico" song was featured in the popular ABC-TV show "Nashville."
Always on the road, to the year-long delight of his countless fans worldwide, David Olney somehow manages to find the time every Tuesday to broadcast his popular YouTube program "You Never Know", where he plays a song and shares the story behind it.
