Pretty exciting to be featured in the just released July-August issue of American Songwriter Magazine. Thanks to Rick Moore for sharing coffee and our conversation. On news-stands and in bookstores now. Click here for more:
Look for shows in the Mid-Atlanic and East Coast in July, with new dates posted in the Carolinas and the Midwest in August – as well as couple of truly special collaborative shows with The Liberty Circus (more on that project, soon).
How about making a trip to Nashville on Wed., May 17 for the Ear 2 The Ground Music Blog 6th Anniversary weekly residency show with David Olney and his band taking the stage after the one and only Sergio Webb and his band rock it?! More on that early 6pm show at The 5 Spot HERE
Slipping in some surprises in May with a TRIO BAND Show on Friday, May 12 in Savannah, GA for the 42nd Night Flight Reunion outdoor event at the Ships Of The Seas Museum, where we share the stage with the Swimming Pool Qs and the Randall Bramblett Band. Tickets available HERE.
The “Don’t Try To Fight It” album release MUSIC + ART EVENT at The 5 Spot in Nashville was spectacular. Thanks to so many folks who came from near and far, including Brock Zeman and Blair Hogan who made the trek from Ottawa to open the show. The boys performed songs from Brock’s new “The Carnival Is Back In Town” and left many jaws agape.
We hope to make more jaws drop way up North from April 20-30, 2017, as we tour together in Eastern Canada, co-billing shows and squeezing in a little recording time. Canada is a bit of new territory for Team Olney. Please share the good word and join us for shows in: Sudbury, Ont. – Worthington, Ont. – Espanola, Ont. – Perth, Ont. – Picton, Ont. – Oakville, Ont. – Sarnia, Ont. – Woodstock, Ont. – and – Wakefield, Que.
Perhaps you’ve heard of Mr. Rodney Crowell? His new album, “Close Ties” hits close to home. Be sure to listen to “Nashville 1972” where he takes a nostalgic look back at Nashville and name-checks the characters who came in search of a song, including yours truly. See and hear a recent CBS-TV “Saturday Sessions” live performance:
San Francisco-based progressive bluegrass band Front Countryis fairly new to Nashville, but knows a good song is timeless. Lend an ear to their new “Other Love Songs” album, featuring a brilliant recording of “Millionaire” (originally released by David Olney on his “Roses” album on Philo/Rounder Records).
Listen to Front Country’s version here:
