“He has an impossibly great, soulful voice and the songs to match” -PASTE
Grammy-award winning guitarist/singer/songwriter Anders Osborne blends blues, rock and roll and New Orleans funk and R&B to create a distinctive genre-bending style that has captivated music fans and fellow performers alike. He wrote “Watch The Wind Blow By,” a #1, million-selling country hit for Tim McGraw and two tracks on bluesman Keb’ Mo’s Grammy-winning album Slow Down. Brad Paisley and Jonny Lang have also recorded his songs, and he wrote and performs (with Ivan Neville) the title track to the not-yet-released Kate Hudson film Earthbound. Anders’ new release, American Patchwork, introduces a new batch of memorable lyrics and gritty performances to his growing audience.
Anders is well-known at radio, having charted a number of tracks at Adult Album radio throughout his career in addition to the success of other artist’s versions of his songs.
An incendiary live performer who cut his musical teeth playing constantly on the fertile New Orleans music scene, Anders will kick off dates in support of American Patchwork with a ton of shows during this year’s two-week New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, including multiple festival and club appearances. Then he’ll play a month of dates out West along with The Stanton Moore Trio (Galactic), followed by ongoing dates with his own band.
American Patchwork is an intense, soul-stirring album ranging from gentle ballads to burning rockers, including some truly amazing guitar playing. It’s a deep, rewarding album featuring powerful songs of sin and redemption set against Anders’ infectious synthesis of classic roots sounds. Joining Osborne is a top-flight ensemble of the Crescent City’s finest, including Stanton Moore, the Stanton Moore Trio’s Robert Walter and Corrosion Of Conformity’s Pepper Keenan.
