Raging, expressive guitar. Soulful, rugged singing. A phenomenal blend of self-awareness, spirit and muscle. These are just some of the words Relix Magazine uses to describe New Orleans’ blues guitar man Anders Osborne. Ranging from electric mayhem to acoustic melodicism, hard-hitting rock to tender ballads, Anders’ emotionally explosive lyrics and raw guitar work embrace the full spirit of the blues – stories of struggling to survive addiction, confessionals of hard truth and healing. New Orleans' Gambit Weekly recently honored Osborne as “Entertainer of the Year,” he’s OffBeat’s three-time winner of “Best Guitarist,” and twice named their “Best Songwriter.” He’s appeared on Galactic albums, co-written songs with Tab Benoit and Mike Zito, had Johnny Lang record others, and most notably wrote two songs for Keb’ Mo’s Grammy-winning album, Slow Down. Risk-taking anthems, precision guitar playing and the tremulous wail rising from emotional chaos have Guitar Player calling him the “poet laureate of Louisiana’s fertile roots music scene.”
