Anders Osborne

"Up and coming" may have been a good way to describe guitarist, singer, and songwriter Anders Osborne earlier in his career, but Osborne's fame has certainly spread beyond the borders of New Orleans, a city where he first cut his teeth and developed a reputation for incendiary live shows. Osborne was born in Sweden in 1966. His father was a professional drummer and a jazz fan whose early-'60s jazz combo played clubs throughout Europe. At a young age, he became fascinated with the singer/songwriters of the '60s and '70s, but then traced those artists' roots back to more basic blues. He traveled around the world, earning money from shows, and settled in New Orleans, which became his home base after 1990.

Osborne artfully blends blues, funk, soul, and classic R&B to create his own distinctive synthesis of styles. Osborne's most widely available early album is 1995's Which Way to Here, recorded for OKeh/Sony; two other independent label releases from the late '90s and early 2000s may still be around for those willing to search: Live at Tipitina's appeared on Shanachie in 1998, followed by Living Room the next year. The introspective Ash Wednesday Blues was issued in early 2001. In 2002, Osborne cut his final two albums for Shanachie, the wonderfully raucous, enigmatic collaboration Bury the Hatchet with Big Chief Monk Boudreaux of the Mardi Gras Indian Tribe the Golden Eagles, and the blues- and Americana-drenched Break the Chain.

He didn't record again until 2006, when he released the larger band session Osborne Orchestra. Osborne was playing nonstop in New Orleans and occasionally in Europe during this period. His 2007 recording, Coming Down, issued on the M.C. imprint, was the most intimate collection of songs he released to date, and walked the line between the nakedly confessional and his observations about living in N.O. after Hurricane Katrina. Live at Jazz Fest 2008, featuring Osborne's killer road band, appeared that year.

In 2009 he signed with Chicago's Alligator label. His first offering for the imprint was the driving, boisterous American Patchwork, issued in 2010. Osborne toured nearly nonstop after the album and produced recordings for Johnny Sansone, Tab Benoit, and Mike Zito. He released Black Eye Galaxy in the spring of 2012; he co-produced the album with Galactic's Stanton Moore and Warren Riker. During relentless touring to celebrate what was his most critically acclaimed album, Osborne took a break late in the year to record the uncharacteristically casual Three Free Amigos, a semi-acoustic, six-track EP, which was released in Feburary of the following year. Later that fall he returned with the full-length Peace. ~ Richard Skelly, Rovi

Anders rules !
Thanks Pandora! This guy is crazy good.
Agree with kpmaccaferri ! Anders in Telluride was ridiculous!
I'm sorry, but you need to see anders live. His albums do no justice to his face melting live shows. The guy is UNREAL.
Anders puts on a really good show.(apolog i e s to Ed Sullivan). His Coming Down album is very emotional and shows his love for New Orleans.
The sound of his songs sound great to me. Not feeling it -check your pulse.
not feeling his recorded music, shouldn't an artist be able to stand on his sound alone? this blues sounds watered down, needs more alcohol or maybe just a harder life

go to youtube...yo u will see what i mean...insta n t l y

I saw him last night at the 8X10 in Baltimore. He was incredible. These recordings don't do him justice. To experience Anders you must see him live. He's a live performer and he feels his way through the music...same as Allman Bros, The Dead,Phish.. . b u t with much more edge...very intense performer... h e ' s got musical talent coming out of every pore...

I had seen some youtube of him and was in awe! His music on here is slow, so when I went to see him in Charleston, SC in May 11 I was a little nervous that it would be too slow. All I can say is that it might have been the best show I have ever seen (that's to say alot as I have been to a bunch of shows over the years!). By the second song the hair was standing on my neck and he was covered with sweat. He played with Devon Allman, who was pretty solid also. His bassist is cool to watch !
Can't say enough good things about him!!! He is an amazing artist! And if you ever see him live you can see how much he loves what he does, and that is so fun to watch!
APRIL 30TH AT TIPITINA'S!! !
The show on Sunday was awesome!!! Got to meet him too! Super cool and down to earth dude!!! Keep ROCKIN!
Loved him back in the mid nineties, he played in Austin (the White Rabbit & The Mercury !) a lot... Saw him at the Parish last December, rockin still...
March 13th!!!!!! yay!!! Another Anders show!!
Can't wait for Jazzfest 2011 to see him again!!!!!!!

Experience his tunes at Jazz Fest and then again at the Rock 'n Bowl. Incredible, absolutely incredible. Don't ever stop, Anders. Love you.
Saw him in nola at Tipitina's on new years eve wow what a show. Great energy kinda sucks you in...
oh that tuba bass-man!
Saw him at Tipitina's in NOLA a couple of weeks ago. Interesting and excellent performance. Hard-edged blues and roots rock guitar jams (I can hear the Warren Haynes too, but others as well), gritty vocals backed by a sousaphone and drums.

He reminds me of Warren Haynes. Yes?

I love listening to Anders, but he's the best when heard live. If you have the opportunity, I HIGHLY recommend it!
One of my favorite artists. I talked to him briefly a few year's back. He told me his influences were Little Feat, Bob Dylan amd Van "the man" Morrison.
