David Olney & Anana Kaye "WHISPERS AND SIGHS" CD & Vinyl LP
David Olney and Anana Kaye take turns leading the listener through intimate self-portraits, myths, and tales of historical fiction, all in an effort to illustrate the various devices we use to cope with our own impermanence. Though the project deals heavily in weighty, existentialist themes, the prevailing message proves to be a celebration of human connection, friendship, and love. As Olney put it in 2019, “We have no idea where the songs come from, but they bring a peace of mind like an old photograph of home. Wherever that may be.”

"Whispers And Sighs is a masterpiece, a parting gift from an imagination of genius. This collaboration between David Olney and the brilliant Irakli Gabriel and Anana Kaye grabs you from the first listen and doesn’t let go. Perfect music for a long night drive, for sitting in the dark with a single candle, for dreamers old and young, a soundtrack for our nightmares and dreams. It is David Olney’s swan song recording, though he had no way of knowing it. Or did he? Here’s the thing, David wrote every song like it was his last, he put everything he had into all he did, 100% committed to the work. Losing David Olney in Jan 2020 kicked off one of the hardest years any of us can remember. He left us with this music, these stories, this beauty he brought forth from his magnificent imagination. I'm in awe, and forever grateful.” (Mary Gauthier)
"A beautiful record. Only wisdom and deep experience can make music like this." (Mike Scott, The Waterboys)
"...a deep gathering of souls in music and song...delivered." (Malcolm Holcombe)
