Joan Osborne

Joan Osborne - Words and Music - 2012

by John Platt

Joan Osborne has a voice made for singing blues and soul, and now she's devoted an entire album to those classic sounds with 'Bring It On Home.' Ahead of its release, she brought a killer band to Studio A to perform a few of the tunes, and also spoke with FUV's John Platt about the 'why and 'why now' of the album. [recorded: 03/22/12]

WFUV Pop Quiz: Joan Osborne

by Laura Fedele

Originally a Kentucky girl, Joan Osborne came to New York a little over 20 years ago to study film at NYU. Her career path took a different direction when she started singing in the New York City clubs. Eight diverse albums later, she’s proved she can sing just about anything. On her most recent, Bring It On Home, she tackles a collection of blues, R&B, and soul covers with, if you’ll forgive the expression, relish.

Aside from your gear, instruments or your band, you do not go on the road without?

Joan Osborne Brings It On Home in Studio A

by John Platt

I've been a fan of Joan Osborne for years. I've introduced her at least a half-dozen concerts over the years, and she never fails to bring it, whether she's with her band or doing a duo concert with her keyboardist Keith Cotton. Yet, even though we've schmoozed a bit backstage, I'd never had the chance to have her as a guest. So you can imagine my excitement when we were able to arrange a sesison, which will air this week on the Sunday Breakfast. And, yes, she did bring it to Studio A, too!

There are few areas of American music that haven't been graced by the soulful voice of Joan Osborne, but now you can cross country music off the list. The CD 'Pretty Little Stranger' focuses more on songwriting than groove, and tonight Joan talks with Dennis Elsas about the writers (including herself) featured on the album.
