Artist Preview: Anders Osborne
Rich and glorious…Osborne possesses a voice that rises out of the darkness to the light of a soulful, tremulous wail. He is a consummate showman and shaman, bending successive moments to suit his majestic purposes. Osborne seeks an epic quality to much of his music, crafting layer upon layer of hugely scaled soundscapes.…never lazily derivative…every slashing guitar figure, every cry of a lyric, seems to come from an authentic place.
–New Orleans Times-Picayune
Well, well New Orleans Times-Picayune. That’s a heck of a way to describe Anders Osborne — and they’re not wrong. Soul is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear Anders Osborne. We cannot wait for him to open up Saturday’s lineup and set the mood for the day with some amazing music.
