Joan Osborne Returns To The Talkhouse

When Joan Osborne came out with her most recent album in 2020, it was packed with the politics of an unparalleled election year. But what she didn’t anticipate was that she wouldn’t get a chance to play her new slew of powerhouse songs live for a long time. Instead, just like everyone else, Osborne went into lockdown. And she found unique ways to share her album, “Trouble and Strife.”

Madeleine Peyroux, Joan Osborne share Garde bill Friday

A musical double bill of Joan Osborne and Madeleine Peyroux is a pretty inspired concept. It wouldn't have occurred to me personally to match the pair, but I'm still rethinking my suggestion that an Art Garfunkel/Cradle of Filth tour was a boffo idea. That one, ah, didn't work out too well when Dani Filth emerged from the wings to help Art sing "Scarborough Fair/Canticle" and was carrying a stake with a severed pig head on it. Plus, Dani was slightly flat ...

Joan Osborne Takes a Well-Deserved Victory Lap with ‘Radio Waves’

The first time I went to Memphis, I asked a resident to recommend a barbecue joint, to which she replied, “wet or dry?” Memphis takes its barbecue so seriously that the average native can wax rhapsodic about rubbed brisket vs. saucy brisket with the accuracy of Steph Curry throwing a three-pointer. Her suggested restaurant was a no-nonsense eatery with plastic checkerboard table covers and paper napkins, a confident flex that said, “our food is so good you won’t miss the linens”. This was a place where they expected you to lick your fingers in public; a place where the work staff’s relaxed demeanor disguised the fact they were up at dawn running the smoker. Ultimately, great barbecue is about slavish devotion to the meat, and every side dish is curated to showcase the meat’s smokiness.

Singer-songwriter Joan Osborne is excited to be back and making music ahead of Savannah show

The infectious melody and hook of Joan Osborne’s hit 1995 single, “One of Us,” will now probably be stuck in your head for the rest of the day. “One of Us,” (written by Eric Bazilian of the Hooters) and its accompanying album, "Relish," thrust Osborne into stardom with the album becoming a Top 10 hit and earning seven Grammy nominations. Osborne is considered one of the most powerful voices in music and the success of "Relish" opened a lot of doors for the artist.
