“The Nashville troubadour has been MAKING GRIPPING MUSIC FOR A LONG TIME. [David] Olney ROCKS WITH BLISTERING INTENSITY…but he also MESMERIZES.” ( The Philadelphia Inquirer )

“Americana Pioneer” singer-songwriter, stream-caster and actor DAVID OLNEY has released more than 20 albums over four decades. His new “Don’t Try To Fight It” recording on Red Parlor Records was produced by award-winning Canadian singer-songwriter and producer Brock Zeman. Mr. Olney’s music has been prominently featured in ABC-TV’s “Nashville” and his intelligent songs have been recorded by Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, Del McCoury, Tim O’Brien, Front Country, Slaid Cleaves and Steve Young, among many others. Well-known for his energetic live performances packed with such an intensity, they leave audiences with a truly memorable experience.

“If you like your musical heroes to rock out like the jackhammer of a rockabilly saint but also deliver song sonnets from a contemplative place, then David Olney is your man.” ( Acoustic Live! Magazine – New York, New York )

A published poet, Mr. Olney recently began burning his original Sonnets in wood blocks with his illustrated visual art making a debut at the Art & Invention Gallery in Nashville, TN earlier this year. David also made his Shakespearean acting debut and composed several songs for The Nashville Shakespeare Festival’s 2014 Americana-themed production of “As You Like It”. He returned to that stage in 2016 with another role and having penned more original music in “The Comedy Of Errors” presentation. He keeps up with fans on his weekly “You Never Know” Songwriter Series video streamcast where he performs a song and shares the story behind it – posted every Tuesday on DavidOlney.com and YouTube.

“[David Olney’s] got a most intense way with words and music, one that lets him zero in on an emotion and then laser it into the human heart itself.” (Bentley’s Bandstand, The Morton Report)
