Billy Keane / Al Olender

BILLY’S SOUND – A BLENDING OF NEO FOLK/AMERICANA WITH INDIE ROCK AND COUNTRY – IS INSPIRED BY HIS LIFE, HIS LISTENING, HIS BELIEF THAT TO BE HUMAN MEANS TO EXPERIENCE THE UNIVERSE AND OUR WORLD AND ITS PEOPLE AND TO REFLECT ALL THAT BACK UPON ITSELF THROUGH ARTISTIC EXPRESSION. HE CAN BE FOUND PERFORMING HIS RESOUNDING ANTHEMIC SONGS EITHER AS A A SOLO ACT WITH AN ACOUSTIC GUITAR, OR AS A FULL BAND SETUP REFLECTIVE OF HIS MOST RECENT ALBUM, TOO MUCH TO LET IT GO (RELEASE EARLY 2022)

BILLY’S MUSICAL LEGACY HAS TAKEN HIM TO FESTIVALS ALL OVER THE COUNTRY, AND HE HAS HAD THE HONOR OF SHARING THE STAGE WITH HOUSEHOLD NAMES LIKE:
-JAMES TAYLOR, YO YO MA, THE GIN BLOSSOMS, BLUES TRAVELER AND MANY OTHERS AT VENUES AS WIDE RANGING AS
-MASSMOCA, THE GREENRIVER FEST IN MASS, THE KATE WOLF FEST IN CALIFORNIA, AND VARIOUS OTHER FESTIVALS AND CONCERT HALLS
– TO LEGENDARY FOLK CLUBS SUCH AS CAMBRIDGE’S CLUB PASSIM, SARATOGA SPRINGS’ CAFFE LENA, NYC’S ROCKWOOD MUSIC HALL, LA’S HOTEL CAFE, AND SAN FRANCISO’S HOTEL UTAH.

IN THE PAST FEW YEARS BILLY HAS BECOME MORE INVOLVED IN ON CAMERA WORK, BEING FEATURED ON CAMERA IN VARIOUS COMMERCIALS AND MUSIC VIDEOS (SIERRA FERRELL’S “IN DREAMS”, JOHNNY IRION’S “TONIGHT”) AND LOOKS FORWARD TO CONTINUING TO EXPLORE OPPORTUNITIES IN THE FILM/TV AND PHOTOGRAPHY WORLDS.

IN 2014 BILLY CO-FOUNDED THE EVER POPULAR COLLABORATIVE SONGWRITER PROJECT CALLED THE WHISKEY TREATY ROADSHOW (2020 RELEASE BAND TOGETHER FEATURING STEVE GORMAN OF THE BLACK CROWES AND PAT SANSONE OF WILCO). THE WHISKEY TREATY HAS TOURED NATIONALLY AND RECEIVED WIDE ACCLAIM BOTH FOR THEIR LIVE RECORDS AND STUDIO ALBUM.

Tragicomic song singer from Baltimore, MD. Al changes her hair a LOT. Easy crier. Big time eye contact maker. Voice and guitar (sometimes electric, sometimes acoustic). Harmony obsessed. Small sentences, big heart. Al currently lives in the Hudson Valley.
