Bluesfest Touring Presents
JOAN OSBORNE (US) - BLUESFEST SIDESHOW Tickets
7:00pm, Sun 16th April, 2017
The Basement, Sydney, NSW
Joan Osborne is a multi-platinum selling recording artist and seven-time Grammy nominee.
The soulful vocalist and noted song interpreter is a highly sought after collaborator and guest performer who has performed alongside many notable artists, including Stevie Wonder, Bob Dylan and Patti Smith to name a few.
Counting such legendary artists as Etta James and Ray Charles as influences, Osborne is firmly rooted in R&B and soul, as evidenced by the soul covers she has recorded on her albums How Sweet It Is, Breakfast In Bed and Bring It On Home, which garnered a Best Blues Album nomination at the 2013 Grammy Awards. Of course she is best known for the worldwide hit 'One of Us' that was a true anthem of the 90s and still connects with listeners today.
"I've put together this Soul Revue, and for these special performances we're doing a lot of great R&B and soul...Motown music...it's just a blast to do," Osborne says of the new show, which includes a set list full of hits, such as 'Midnight Train To Georgia,' 'Ain't No Sunshine,' 'Heat Wave' and 'I Don't Need No Doctor.' I love this music - it's just so joyful and so freeing."

"Love and Hate is particularly satisfying in that it delivers on-and extends-the promise made by her wonderful debut so many years ago." - Pop Matters
"Ms. Osborne is a fiercely intelligent, no-nonsense singer-songwriter who is allergic to traditional pop sentimentality, though hardly devoid of feeling...As both a songwriter and interpreter; she looks life squarely in the face." - New York Times
