David Olney Interview

There are plenty of songs out there on the subject of the life and crucifixion of Christ, but none as told by the diverse cast of characters residing in David Olney’s captivating release The Stone. Olney takes the all too familiar Easter story, and deftly observes the events through the eyes of – a con man learning of a fellow “miracle-worker” who’s cutting into his livelihood; a lowly but proud donkey blessed with the honor of carrying a King into town; a convicted murderer baffled as to why he was spared from crucifixion because of stranger; and a career soldier who must shamefully admit the body is missing from the tomb he was assigned to guard.

I got the chance to talk with David about The Stone and its engagingly fresh perspective of an ancient story. Mr. Olney is equally as fascinating as his songwriting. As a bonus – he performed a couple of songs during the interview. Thanks, David! Enjoy!
