TVD Recommends:
David Olney at Chickie Wah Wah, 6/6

The acclaimed singer/songwriter out of Nashville will grace the stage of the Canal Street fine listening establishment on Saturday night. He will be appearing in a duo setting with the multi-instrumentalist Sergio Webb.

Olney released his latest studio recording, When the Deal Goes Down, last year. His music cuts a large swath across a variety of roots music styles. His lyrics are equally expansive, mixing comedic touches with starkness all hewed to his trademark sense of dramatic flair.

Olney is a native of Rhode Island who has followed his muse since the early 1970s when he settled in Nashville. Earlier in his career he recorded albums which were distributed by Rounder Records. His songs have been recorded by the likes of Emmy Lou Harris and Linda Ronstadt.

Webb is a versatile and brilliant accompanist who cuts a backwoods country figure while adding filigreed touches on guitar, banjo, and ukulele. Their duo makes a mighty sound as Olney puts his energy forth in a rockin’ style that emphasizes his commitment to the muse—and the music.
