David Olney BIOGRAPHY By Tony Laiolo:

On the front cover of singer/songwriter David Olney’s new studio album, When the Deal Goes Down, a stone-faced Olney deals you an ace of spades, the mythical Death Card. A similar photo sits inside, but in that one he smiles wryly as cards fly crazily around him. The counterpoint is apt: The music inside mirrors those ... Read more in Amazon's David Olney Store

Editorial Reviews


New record David Olney Presents: Film Noir Frank Is Gone "I tell you what, this blogging thing is tougher than it looks. Finding new music and separating the wheat from the chaff is harder than you might think. That s why it s nice to occasionally have a known commodity to write about. In this case it s the great folk/blues artist David Olney. The cool thing is this song is from a project that is completely different from his previous work. The new record is called David Olney Presents: Film Noir. And yes, from this first taste the style is certainly representative of the film noir genre." --Songs Illinois

A BLUES-DARKENED singer-songwriter with a METHOD ACTOR S IMAGINATION. --The Nashville Scene

Along with Tom Russell and James McMurtry, David Olney is one of the greatest American story tellers working today. I had the great pleasure of seeing him play The Borderline in London about ten years ago when for some inexplicable reason there was no more than a dozen of us in the place (and that included the barstaff). Despite that he put on a great show and was gracious enough to let me buy him a beer afterwards. There has always been a cinematic element to his music and with his new five track mini-album he goes the whole hog. The title - "David Olney Presents Film Noir" - gives you a pretty good idea of what to expect. As the great man himself puts it in the blurb I got sent with it, this record is kind of 50s/ 60s detective music. There s a certain darkness without being bleak. Although I'm not entirely sure about the "not being bleak" bit of that. It is a tough call as which of the five tracks best evokes the hard-bitten world-weariness of Lew Archer and the like, but I have plumped for "Sunset On Sunset Boulevard". "David Olney Presents Film Noir" comes out on 24 May on Dead Beet Records. You should get it. And to encourage you to dip into his extensive back catalogue as well, I have taken the liberty of adding an old favourite as well, in the form of "King of Soul" from 1989's "Deeper Well" album. --27 Leggies Blog - Bringing Tsonga Disco to the Masses

Everytime I listen to this, I feel like I'm in a classic black and white film noir movie looking for someone in a city! Just great production work and audio imaging!

I was sold on this cool, new mini-album from DAVID OLNEY and think this excerpt from a really great interview in the Democrat & Chronicle (Rochester, NY) sums it up perfectly:

"For Olney, songwriting is dangerous work. As on FILM NOIR, where the songs are all hipster beat, a whistle in the dark, and arrangements as smoky as Bogart's ash tray."

Ain't it the truth! LOVE IT!
