Joan Osborne - to release Bob Dylan covers album
Grammy nominated singer-songwriter Joan Osborne announced that her forthcoming album is entitled “The Songs of Bob Dylan,” consisting entirely of songs written by legendary songwriter and Nobel Prize for Literature recipient Bob Dylan. The album will be released in Spring, 2017.
Joan Osborne is a multi-platinum recording artist whose career was jumpstarted with the great success of her major label debut album, Relish. The album produced the massive MTV and international smash single, “One of Us.” The New York Times praised her 2016 Café Carlyle residency exclusively featuring the songs of Bob Dylan, stating that “at every point in the evening, you had a sense of Ms. Osborne as an artist who knew exactly what she was doing,” and described her as a “fiercely intelligent, no-nonsense singer-songwriter.” Ms. Osborne is taking her all-Dylan show on the road for performances in the US and Europe throughput 2017.
Ms. Osborne, a soulful vocalist and highly sought-after collaborator, has performed alongside many notable artists including Bob Dylan, Luciano Pavarotti, Stevie Wonder, Emmylou Harris, Taj Mahal and Mavis Staples, to name a few. She continues to tour extensively with her own band and in various configurations, such as when she joined forces in 2003 with the surviving members of The Grateful Dead (as The Dead). Osborne appeared in the Grammy Award-winning documentary Standing in the Shadows of Motown. Her latest solo recording, Love and Hate, is one of the most personally charged, creatively ambitious efforts of her two-decades-plus recording career.
